I can say without a doubt this is the best run local Sprint triathlon I’ve been a part of. The fly over was exceptional and the course is great. Everyone should give this race a tri!!! (Chris)

We love the race! Our kids did it the last two years and have already been asking when it happens next. I think it’s well organized and a fun environment for kids and adults. (Jess)

Overall, it was a great race experience and I'm excited to return in 2024.  Both me and my daughter (6 yoa at the time) competed.  I typically participate in much bigger races, so this was a really nice change of pace and definitely felt like a family atmosphere.  The bike course was really well paved and the run was enjoyable as well...Thanks again for putting on such a great race!  I've already added it to my race calendar this year and will use it as my final tune up before Nationals.  See you then!(Josh)

Along with all the positive reviews we received many helpful suggestions....Sprint Wave Seeding, Youth Bike Start, Youth Signage.  All of your concerns will be addressed.  Thanks for giving us the time.

Triathlon Sponsors

 

Our Charity Partner: Families of the Wounded Fund, Click here to donate.

Please consider making a donation to the Families of the Wounded Fund, just click on the underlined heading above or go to: 

https://www.fotwf.org/

100% of our race proceeds go to this worthy cause!

Here is a brief description of our charity and their mission:

These Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines have a long and very difficult road ahead. Most are young, and their lives and the lives of their families have been forever changed. Regardless of their gender, race, or ethnic heritage, these wounded American heroes and their families clearly understand the high cost of freedom.

They need and deserve all the support we can give them. Simply put, helping the families is the right thing to do. The purpose of the fund is to raise money and assist these families while they are here in Central Virginia. We have been doing this since 2005, and for your generosity, we are most grateful.

Our mission is simple…we raise money and give 100% of it to the families of the combat-wounded injured in support of the Global War on Terrorism. We can do no less for those who are sacrificing so much for our great nation.
