Registration for The 5th Annual Nation’s Triathlon To Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will open today at 12am. Those interested in registering for the race should go to www.nationstri.com.
The first triathlon in the nation to benefit research toward curing blood cancers, the Nation’s Triathlon will take place Sunday, September 12, 2010 in Washington DC. One of the nation’s largest Olympic distance races, competitors will take part in a 1.5k swim in the Potomac River, 40k bike course through D.C., and a 10k run through downtown DC’s historical landmarks.
According to Charles Brodsky, founder of the Nation’s Triathlon™, “The Nation’s Triathlon™ has sold out by early spring in the last three years so we urge those who are interested to register soon. Our spectacular growth since the race’s inception in 2004, a 900% growth over four years, is a testament to the fact that the Nation’s Triathlon features a world class race in a world class city.
"This event continues to grow and attract thousands of athletes from across the globe, and is estimated to become the largest Olympic distance triathlon in the nation in 2010, with a projected 8,000 registered athletes. We invite more people to join us in 2010 and learn firsthand what makes this city and this course so unique and appealing.”
