Events DC Nation’s Triathlon is proud to announce that we are honoring our nation’s Military in 2016 by providing all athletes in the Military Challenge with the opportunity to take part in the FIRST WAVE of the Olympic Distance Age Group race. Our Military Challenge athletes will have the option to participate in the Military Challenge Wave, which will be entering the water following our Elite Athletes.

Please note that those who take advantage of this opportunity will not be eligible for USA Triathlon Age Group National Championship Qualification, nor will they be eligible for Nation’s Triathlon Age Group Awards. Alternatively, those athletes who do *not* race in this special wave *will* still be competing in our “Race-Within-A-Race” Military Challenge.

If you are already registered for Nation’s Triathlon as part of the Military Challenge, and you wish to switch to the Military Challenge Wave, please check your email in the next few days for instructions on how to switch to this wave. If you have any questions, please email our customer service team.

Thank you to our military for their service to our country and we look forward to seeing you at West Potomac Park in Washington, D.C. in September!

Good luck with your training,

Nation’s Triathlon Team
