Radley Auto Group Spotsylvania Sprint Triathlon & Youth Tri
This is a 500yd pool swim, 15m bike course, and a 5k run – part trail part road. This is a great triathlon for beginners as well as the experienced triathlete. The longer swim in the pool is closer to the open water distance. The bike course has rolling hills on country roads as well as four lane roads. The course is 1 loop and takes you downtown Spotsylvania. The run is challenging with hills and a mulch trail with the road interspersed. Our triathlon is open for triathletes 15 years and older.
not ready to tackle the entire tri alone? Put a relay team together – this can be 2 – 3 people who share the different legs of the event. Your swimmer is seeded right along with the individuals competing in the event. You have a separate rack in transition where you tag and exchange the timing chip for the next leg of the event. You also have your own division for awards.
YOUTH TRIATHLON – this event is divided based on age:
5-10 yr olds – 50yd pool swim, 1.6m bike on a closed , .75m run – mostly trail
11-15yr olds – 100yd swim, 3.2m bike on a closed road, 1.5m run – mostly trail
Each event has a REALY TEAM option. You may have teams of 2 or 3 kids competing in the team division. Your team must choose either 5-10 or 11-15 year old event. You can age waive up – not down. Relay teams have their own award division.
The youth triathlon is a great way to get our kids involved in this sport we love. The distances are designed to give the kids the experience of competing in the 3 events with transitions without over taxing them with big distances. Having the youth event immediately following the sprint triathlon provides the kids with great spectators and volunteers. Many of the sprint triathletes stay and cheer on the kids.
