REGISTER HERE

For our 15th year of serving the community through multi-sport, the Reston Sprint Triathlon team is pleased to present both virtual and in-person events!   Start training and register today
 
Our experience from 2020 revealed that not everybody wants to wake up at five am, battle race traffic and pay for far-away parking, in order to run, bike and swim with a lot of strangers.
 
Some participants…
  • are intimidated by the in-person race experience
  • perform better later in the day
  • just can’t show up – they have other plans that they can’t break
  • don’t want bananas at the end
  • don’t need to walk a half mile back to the car
  • just need the sense of accomplishment that led them to training for the event
  • just need to get to the finish – wherever and whenever that finish works best for them
Virtual events let participants still have the multi-sport experience on their time without their perceived riffraff and frustrations. For our “virtual participants” we provide you with the opportunity to complete your virtual tri any time between June 6th and August 15th.
 
And, some athletes enjoy every opportunity to participate in triathlon and choose to race in BOTH in-person and virtual events. Our 15th Annual RST in-person event registration provides a bonus free (no swag) entry for the 2021 virtual race. Register for the in-person RST here.
 
ABOUT THE VIRTUAL RACE: 
The 2021 Virtual Reston Sprint Triathlon will be completed by athletes in their own time, in their own way, anytime between June 6th and August 15th. Yes, that means no 5 am wake up alarm on a Sunday morning!
 
Athletes will choose their own start and finish lines and can participate from any location across the country! Timing will be completed on the athlete’s device of choice (smart phone, smart watch, manual time, etc.). Athletes will have the opportunity to log their scores and compare their rankings. Athletes may also join our Strava RST Club to connect with another athletes.
 
Athletes may swim, bike and/or run on any course of their choosing. Just be safe and socially distanced!
