2021 Team Races
Backyard Burn — Wakefield
Wakefield Park, Annandale, VA
5.5 miles or 10 miles
"Located a stones throw from the Capital Beltway, Wakefield Park offers racers a fast, fun, and ‘mostly flat’ course that includes twisty single-track hiking trails, wide cinder trails, and several shallow stream crossings – a perfect course to kick-off the SBYB series. New course in 2020 to limit the use of the paved CCT and add some new singletrack!!" Learn more.

IRONMAN 70.3 Virginia's Blue Ridge
"Kick-off your race season in great weather conditions at the start of summer! With expansive views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, athletes are sure to enjoy all that Roanoke has to offer during the inaugural year of Carilion Clinic’s IRONMAN 70.3 Virginia’s Blue Ridge. There's a reason Roanoke has been coined America's East Coast Mountain Biking Capital! Virginia has a wide array of metro-mountain adventures and hundreds of miles of hiking trails, including the world-famous Appalachian Trail!"
Ironman 70.3 Eagleman
"A precursor to IRONMAN Maryland, and partaking of much of the same course, this race has been popular among triathletes based in the area for years. Traversing through the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and the historic streets of Cambridge, there is no shortage of sites to see while on course. Combine that with the welcoming community of athletes and locals, and this is a race for everyone.'"
Diamond in the Rough
Sprint Tri, Olympic Tri, Relay, Aquabike
"Midway between Baltimore and Philadelphia, this race is staged out of beautiful Perryville Community Park in Perryville, Maryland which is truly a hidden gem, a diamond in the rough. Nestled on forested bluffs overlooking the top of the Chesapeake Bay this park makes for the epicenter of a great race. The swim takes place in the Chesapeake Bay and is a one loop swim featuring an in water start off the dock. The Sprint bike course is a rolling out and back course while the Olympic bike course is technical with a mix of suburbia, rolling farm country and a fast, flat drag strip along River Road. The run course is mostly flat and winds its way along the Chesapeake Bay on sidewalks and back roads. "
Fort Ritchie Triathlon
"This triathlon, designed for all levels, has two distances (Olympic and Sprint) and will start and end at Fort Ritchie in Cascade, MD…..just 20 minutes from Frederick, MD and Hagerstown, MD, and 90 minutes from Baltimore and DC. Fort Ritchie is an old military base that is being converted to a private residential community. The property is a beautiful venue for multisport racing and will also host the Fort Ritchie Duathlon the same day."
"It's no surprise that year after year, IRONMAN Wisconsin is a top contender for IRONMAN Athlete Choice Awards. A charming Midwestern town, Madison offers a perfect combination of big-city amenities and a scenic course. But the real magic of IRONMAN Wisconsin lies in the spirit and energy of the spectators. Athletes can’t help but feel a lift from the relentless motivation of Madison’s crowds."
