Runners can take part in a Halloween-themed triathlon in Reston in late October.
Participants will be tasked with a 10-minute indoor swim, a 30-minute ride on a stationary bike and a 20 minute run on a treadmill. Everyone is encouraged to dress up in a costume, though event organizers ask that people do not wear makeup in the pool.
Registration is $35 for YMCA members and $50 for the public and includes a swag bag full of gear and snacks as well as a free massage and stretch.
Participants will be awarded based on distance in each category, and all categories will be considered equally. There will also be a prize for the best costume.
Those wishing to participate can pick up their packets at the YMCA on Friday (Oct. 25) from 5-7 p.m. and Saturday (Oct. 26) from 9-11 a.m.
Event organizers are also looking for volunteers. Those interested can sign up online.
