The Richmond Triathlon Club Sprint Triathlon is located at the Collegiate School Aquatics Center SWIM RVA facility at Ukrop Park, home of the 2008 Olympic Trials pool! This venue features a 50-meter, 7’7″-all deep pool, allowing us to offer the most unique pool swim experience in triathlon – a 400m open water pool swim. No more waiting for hours in the cold to get into the pool. No more problems with “improper” seed times. All athletes will be in the pool within 25-minutes of the start gun. There is an additional 25yd warm up pool for those who wish to warm up prior to their wave start! Follow the swim with a 20k bike, 5k run and a breakfast feast!
The Richmond Triathlon Club pulls out all the stops and puts on a great event that you will want to bring friends and family with you to race or watch. Check out this video on how the open water pool swim works! HERE

By registering as a Novice you will start the race in the last wave of athletes if the race is an open water swim.
