Celebrating 5 years of Ironman participation

An International Race You Want to See

Leave a comment

I’m on my way to DC for the weekend to help out with the Dextro Energy ITU World Championship Series Race! If you haven’t heard of this race, you should check it out. This race will feature up to 130 pro athletes from all over the world. And, unlike any other triathlons, the pros can draft on the bike course.

To make a whole celebration of the event, there’s an age group race on Sunday morning and an expo on Saturday. We even have grandstands set up along Pennsylvania Ave to make it easy to watch the elite athletes loop around downtown DC at record speeds.

Not in DC? That’s ok! The race is being covered on live tv! Check out what Gale Bernhardt has to say, or watch the traffic on twitter this weekend (@ITUonline, @stropes, @universalsports).

And of course, I need to make one last pitch – If anyone in DC has time to volunteer on Sunday, we could use your help – especially at the Finish Line!
