The triathlon is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 6 at Ridge Heights Pool (11400 Ridge Heights Road). Participants will be broken into three age groups to tackle the course:

  • Ages 6-8: swim 50 meters, bike 1.1 miles, run 7/10th of a mile
  • Ages 9-11: swim 100 meters, bike 2 miles, run 1 mile
  • Ages 12-14: swim 150 meters, bike 4 miles, run 1.4 miles

At least one free training clinic will be offered to registrants in June or July to help them understand what to expect on the day of the event.

Volunteers are also sought for the event. In addition, individuals or businesses are invited to make donations to sponsor children in the race. The event itself is co-sponsored by Reston Association and the YMCA Fairfax County-Reston.

The 2016 race had more than 200 participants.
