The Colonial Beach Triathlon Festival consist of 2 great events set in scenic Colonial Beach. While this race is relatively new to the VTS, 2015 will mark the 31st year for these races. The swim starts out with a 1 loop 750 meter swim in the Potomac river. This is then followed by a mostly flat 14 mile bike course through rural countryside. Upon your return to the beach athletes will embark on a scenic flat and fast out and back 5K course. Athletes will then be treated to a post race feast and can spend the day in Colonial Beach or the surrounding area.
This event benefits the Rappahannock Area YMCA and the programs it uses to enhance their community. Please take a moment during the registration process to make a donation to this worthy cause.
