Rev3 Westfields Triathlon: April 30th

Our Military Kids is excited to partner with the Westfields Business Owners Association to host their 5th Annual Westfields Triathlon, powered by Revolution3 Triathlon, on April 30 at Cub Run Rec Center, 4630 Stonecroft Blvd, in Chantilly, VA.

Triathlons offer a chance to test your metal through swimming, biking, and running. This event welcomes everyone, from the very experienced to the first-timer. Come on out and have fun.

The swim will take place at the Cub Run Rec Center Pool. Athletes, starting one at a time in a time trial, snake swim, format, will swim 250 yards (10 lengths of the pool).

The 12-mile, two-loop bike course is mostly flat and on smooth surfaces. Partially closed to vehicular traffic, it is spectator-friendly and easy to navigate.

The 5-km (3.1 mile) run will take place mostly on the Cub Run trail system, which is on a paved surface.
