The 2011 DC triathalon race will take place on Father’s Day, June 19, 2011.  The event will include both a Sprint distance (.8k swim, 20k bike, 6.7k run) and International distance (1.5K swim, 40K bike, 10K run) course along DC’s most scenic parkways and national monuments.  The race will finish on America’s Main Street – Pennsylvania Avenue – with the U.S. Capitol Building as the backdrop.

Registration fees are $135 for the Sprint distance and $190 for the International distance.  Prices will increase on October 29, so competitors are urged to register early.  To register, go to www.DCTri.com

According to Molly Quinn, owner of Washington Sports and Event Management, organizer of the Washington, DC Triathlon:  “Our 2011 race, which joins the 5150 series, will include both age group and professional triathletes.  Professionals will compete in the International distance race with a prize purse of $25,000 for the fastest male and female.  We look forward to hosting a world class event next June for the 2011 5150 series.”

Starting in 2011, the 5150 Series will be the largest international distance triathlon series in the world and will be the first non-drafting international race series of its kind, offering a competitive platform for professional and age group athletes.  The 2011 event schedule will offer 13 domestic events as well as a handful of international races.
