This Weekend’s Reston Triathlon Still in Need of More Volunteers

by Dave Emke September 7, 2017 at 1:30 pm 4 Comments

The 34th annual Reston Triathlon is coming up Sunday morning, and volunteers are still needed to help make the event go smoothly.

According to information provided by event organizers:

We are looking for a few good men and women to be a part of our 34th annual Reston Triathlon race. So…join us, on September 10th, by volunteering at our local community race. Bring yourself and your spirit of volunteerism and enthusiasm to add to the excitement of the event!

Volunteers can sign up online to help in a variety of ways. Generally speaking, setup volunteers will start at about 5 a.m., swim volunteers will start around 6 a.m., bike volunteers will get to work around 7 a.m., and run volunteers will start at about 8 a.m. that morning. At the end of the event, around 11 a.m., volunteers will be needed for cleanup after the awards presentation.

Help is specifically needed along the bike course, an organizer tells Reston Now.

Registration to participate in the event is closed. Those taking part will swim 1,500 meters in Lake Audubon, bike 40 kilometers on area roadways and run 10 kilometers on Reston pathways, ending at the South Lakes High School stadium.

    Hope the weather is good for this event!

    Is the fact that the race ends at SLHS also telling us that all the refurbishing of the stadium there is complete?

      The race will end adjacent to the stadium. The refurbish is not yet complete.

    I hate the fact I am missing it this year. This is a great event and glad our community does this. Thank you to the Board and the volunteers! I look forward to competing in it next year.
