According to a participant:
“Thanks to the race directors, the volunteers and all the amazing supporters. One of the best races I have done and so well organized. Loved the course and the beautiful views… Best reason to see the Washington Monument at 5:15 in the morning!” – Jessica Greenblatt
The 2017 DC Nation’s Triathlon course is one of the most spectacular and athlete friendly courses in the world winding past monuments, memorials and history through the Nation’s Capital.
The swim takes place in the scenic and calm Potomac River, where you will swim past Arlington Cemetery and under the Memorial Bridge twice. The swim start is next to the transition area and the finish line so family and friends can watch more of your race!
The bike route is flat and fast, winding past the Potomac River, the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, and the Kennedy Center. There is no bike course like it in the world.
The Finish Line Festival has live music, free food for athletes, free post-race athlete services and instant results printed for you right when you finish!
