The Reston Relay Triathlon (RRT) is a team-based Triathlon race in Reston, Virginia and operates under the Reston Relay Triathlon Board. The race is a USA Triathlon (USAT) certified race.
The purpose of the race is to introduce athletes to the sport of triathlon, without the daunting task of having to be proficient in each of the three disciplines. It is also to encourage families, friends and co-workers to participate in an event that promotes a healthy lifestyle and camaraderie.
The Reston Relay Tri is a non-profit activity presented by The Y – Fairfax County Reston and Reston Association (RA). Any proceeds will provide scholarships to support kids programs offered by The Y and by the Reston Association, including summer camps and classes.
The race offers an opportunity for families, friends and co-workers to participate in a Triathlon as one relay team. Just think, two or three generations from one family participating as a team to meet a common goal. The Reston Relay Triathlon is a perfect way for bonding; three members may participate together in the race while other members may participate as the 'support crew'.
What better way for a group of friends to challenge one another, or another group of friends! There are many combinations and possibilities.
For co-workers, this is a great opportunity for you to participate in an event whereby you effectively work as a team to accomplish a task and work as a single unit. If you have more than one team, this is a great opportunity to compete with each other in a way that also promotes health and fitness.
Positive team relationships help create teams that are productive and extend beyond the walls of the workplace and into relationships and the personal lives of the workers.

The race will be a sprint distance triathlon, with the first team member swimming 400 meters in the 50-meter Lake Newport Pool. Upon exiting the pool the swimmer will go to transition to pass off the timing chip to the biking team member, who will ride three loops of a 3.5-mile course and return to the same transition area in the pool parking lot. Upon return, the biker will hand off the chip to the runner who will then run 5 kilometers on asphalt walkways through neighborhoods and beautiful parkland, returning to the finish to the cheering of their teammates and many others.
After the race, enjoy food, music and a beer garden sponsored by Dogfish Head Alehouse – Chantilly! What is not to like?!
