The swim takes place in the scenic and calm Potomac River, where you will swim past Arlington Cemetery and under the Memorial Bridge twice. The swim start is next to the transition area and the finish line so family and friends can watch more of your race!
The bike route is flat and fast, winding past the Potomac River, the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, United States Peace Institute, and the Kennedy Center. There is no bike course like it in the world.
The run route is a challenging and beautiful single-loop that takes competitors past the Tidal Basin, Jefferson Memorial, National Holocaust Memorial, US Mint, Hains Point, and more. The finish line is adjacent to the transition area and swim start making it ideal for family and friends.
