Quantico Tri

Splash, cycle, and beat feet in the Quantico Tri on Saturday, August 22, 2015! Hosted aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, each leg of the USAT sanctioned, sprint distance event will offer a unique view of the Crossroads of the Marine Corps.

Look for growth and expansion of the two year-old event in 2015 that may include a start near Officer’s Candidate School, a 750 meter open water swim and a 10 mile cycle tour of the Marine Corps Base, founded in 1917. The 2014 event brought marked improvements such as tattoos used in place of body marking, a timing mat which recorded each athlete’s personal start time at the pool and a change in the cycle course.

Expect changes at the 2015 Quantico Tri, most notably, the possible switch from pool swim to a 750 meter open water swim.

The Quantico Tri traditionally includes a 5K run, the distance every Marine must complete annually as part of the Marine Corps physical fitness test.

Registration and Free Pasta Dinner
The $95 registration fee includes a technical participant shirt, finisher medal, event timing, and a ticket to the pre-event pasta dinner and informational session. The pasta dinner will be held at the Clubs at Quantico. During registration, guest tickets to the dinner will be available for purchase. A mandatory participant presentation will be held to cover event instructions and transition procedures as well as answer any event questions.

Packet pick-up will be conducted on Friday, August 21. All participants will be required to pick up event packets on this date. Bibs, timing chips, helmet stickers, bike numbers and competitor tattoos will be distributed at this time. Timing chips must be returned at the completion of the event.

Registration is open now!
