The 2013 Nation’s Triathlon run course is a single-loop run that takes competitors right past the history, monuments and glory of Washington, DC!
The 2013 Nation’s Triathlon run route is a mostly flat and very fast course that is completely closed to all vehicular traffic. On race day, these monumental roads, avenues and boulevards will belong to the competitors of The Nation's Triathlon.
Running through history and the splendor of Washington, DC, competitors cross over the Tidal Basin, pass the Smithsonian Museum, Washington Monument, Haines Point and Jefferson Memorial and run along the Washington Channel and the Potomac River.
Huge mile marker flags and fully stocked aid stations are placed at every mile along the run. All five aid stations are staffed by cheerful, fun and friendly volunteers who are there to assist you. There is also an aid station in the Transition Area so you can get something to drink before the start of the race and as you go through T1 and T2.
