Nation’s Triathlon on the way in Washington D.C.

July 27, 2013 by  

The Nation’s Triathlon will be held in Washington D.C. in just a couple of months’ time. The picturesque course will include a swim totaling 1.5 kilometers down the Potomac River then a bike ride consisting of a 40k ride throughout streets of Washington D.C. and Maryland. The finish will involve the participants running past historical landmarks within the city to conclude with the 10k part of the event.

A Health and Fitness Expo will take place for two days and is free to the public. The event will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which is renowned as a leading nonprofit health organization dedicated to providing research funding.

The Nation’s Triathlon began as a competition in 2006 with fewer than 500 contestants finishing the race. It is now recognized as the largest triathlon in the nation by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Several activities are scheduled for the event, including a ‘Military Challenge’, which invites active duty personnel and veterans to participate; a ‘CQ-Roll Call Congressional Challenge’ which invites federal employees to participate and the ‘Commander-in-Chief Challenge’ for tri teams from military academies. There will also be an event, the ‘Tri Club Challenge’, for club members.

Print companies are frequently involved in producing the print materials needed for large outdoor events, with banner printing being a common request. The triathlon is scheduled for September 8, starting at 7:00 am. Each participant will receive a T-shirt, a finisher’s medal, a red carpet finish, and a post-race breakfast. They will also receive access to the beer garden and concert later in the day.
