I wear a lot of hats at Endorphin Fitness, and for the month of April one of my larger hats is race director of the East Coast Triathlon Festival. Next Sunday, May 6th, athletes from 12 countries and 42 US states will converge on Richmond, VA to race. This year’s professional event is the U23 Elite National Championship which is pulling top talent from around the world to see how they stack up against the US’ best athletes vying for a national championship. In addition to this, the top US juniors will be racing head-to-head in the junior elite cup and local age group kids and adults will get the opportunity to race on the same course in their own individual races. Now in its 6th year, I can say that the East Coast Tri Festival is one special day.
So, where will you be next Sunday?
You don’t want to miss this! Whether you are a racer or a spectator, you want to be in the Innsbrook Office Park on Sunday. There are few chances to watch the very best endurance athletes in the world compete in your own backyard, and next weekend is one of those chances. This is not your normal triathlon – this is fast-paced, draft-legal, spectator-friendly, head-to-head racing that will leave you in awe.
The stage is set. Now we just need you – the fan. Make a point to be in Innsbrook (4600 Cox Rd) next Sunday. To view the complete race schedule, visit the event page.
