Registration for the 12th annual Reston Sprint Triathlon begins on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. The race, which is the largest in northern Virginia, will take place on June 3 and is projected to sell out within a day.
The race is supported by the CORE Foundation, a Reston-based nonprofit organization that aims to help social entrepreneurs and small organizations achieve their goals. The event begins at 7 a.m. at the Lake Newport Pool (11601 Lake Newport Road). Races must be completed within two hours. USA Triathlon membership is required to register.
This year, the triathlon will feature a new trikit, which will be available for purchase. Athletes will also have the opportunity to fundraiser and earn back up to $105 of race fees. Through the optional program, athletes can sign up to raise money for underserved individuals in northern Virginia. The organization plans to offer several incentives to encourage individuals to meet fundraising targets.
Awards are given to the top five men and women finishes and the the top three master male, female, Clydesdale and Athena divisions. Registration will open online tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. Volunteers can also apply online.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Cornerstones, which promotes self-sufficiency through support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, childcare and other services.
