A couple notes about race day

The Events DC Nation’s Triathlon will have bike mechanics on site in the transition area on Saturday and Sunday. They will be able to provide light bike maintenance only and will not have the tools and materials to fix major mechanical issues, and will not have any equipment for sale.

Water will be available in the transition area to top off your water bottles. There is no bottle exchange on the bike route, so make sure you arrive on race morning with whatever drinks you wish to consume while on the bike course.
