Tri Harder Transition Time
The Quantico Tri features a start near Officer Candidates School with a 750 meter open water swim in the Potomac River. Athletes transition to a 20K (12.4 mile) cycle tour of the Marine Corps Base that was founded in 1917. The Quantico Tri concludes with a 5K run, the distance every Marine must complete annually as part of the Marine Corps physical fitness test. For those desiring only to run, the MCM offers the Quantico 12K to be hosted alongside the Quantico Tri. The run is a perfect distance at the perfect time in MCM training.
Hosted at Officer Candidates School, the Quantico Tri is an open water swim in the Potomac, with bike and run courses throughout Marine Corps Base Quantico.
