General Smallwood Triathlon Festival
May 19, 2018 • Indian Head, MD
Located just on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. these two races take place at a great venue and is very easy to get to. Moved to May in 2016 to take advantage of the early season open water swim availability. The park is named after Maryland’s fourth governor and the highest ranking Marylander to serve in the Revolutionary War, General Smallwood State Park is ideally situated for a triathlon. The swim takes place in the pristine Mattawoman Bay, known across the Nation as a top spot for bass fishing. After a run to the transition area, athletes will race along miles of rolling hills where most of the traffic is just your fellow triathletes! Once you’ve laced up your running shoes, you’ll head back to the road for a scenic run with aid stations every mile. Run past the restored house named Smallwood’s Retreat towards the finish and you will understand why the General made this area his “Headquarters”!
These events feature a Tri-Blend Crew Style T-Shirt, Custom Race Socks, Finisher’s Medals, Professional DJ, Bounce House and a post race meal.
