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.
