Every row of the transition area is clearly marked with a very large row sign, making it easy to find your bike and your rack space. In addition, each athlete has a dedicated spot on the rack identified by your name and bib number to place your bike. There is also space in the transition area for your gear.
The transition area is located along the bank of the beautiful Potomac River south of the Lincoln Memorial in West Potomac Park, with the Washington Monument in plain sight. The walk from the transition area to the swim start sis less than a minute and the run back into T1 should take less than 30 seconds.
Athletes are required to rack their bikes on Saturday and ample overnight security is provided. The transition area will open up at 9:30 AM for gradual bike removal after the race.
