Virtual Reston Sprint Triathlon Race Description

The 2021 Virtual Reston Sprint Triathlon

will be held from

June 6th through August 15th

For our 15th year of serving the community through multi-sport, the Reston Sprint Triathlon team is pleased to present both virtual and in-person events. 
Our experience from 2020 revealed that not everybody wants to wake up at five am, battle race traffic and pay for far-away parking, in order to run, bike and swim with a lot of strangers.

Some people...
  • are intimidated by the in-person race experience
  • perform better later in the day
  • just can't show up - they have other plans that they can't break
  • don't want bananas at the end
  • don't need to walk a half mile back to the car
  • just need the sense of accomplishment that led them to training for the event
  • just need to get to the finish - wherever and whenever that finish works best for them
Virtual events let people still have the multi-sport experience on their time without their perceived riffraff and frustrations. For our "virtual people" we provide you with the opportunity to complete your virtual tri any time between June 6th and August 15th.
And, some athletes enjoy every opportunity to participate in triathlon and choose to race in BOTH in-person and virtual events. Our 15th RST in-person event registration provides a bonus free entry for the 2021 virtual race.
All athletes registered for the 2020 RST event have been converted to the Virtual Run - Bike - Run and there's no additional action required by the athlete. Three additional virtual categories have been added and athletes may change their category if they prefer. The Virtual Reston Sprint Triathlon will be completed by athletes in their own time, in their own way, anytime between July 30th and August 2nd. Yes, that means no 5 am wake up alarm! Read our FAQs here.
Athletes will choose their own start and finish lines and can participate either in Reston or from any location across the country! Timing will be completed on the athlete's device of choice (smart phone, smart watch, manual time, etc.). Athletes will have the opportunity to log their scores and compare their rankings. Athletes may also join our Strava RST Club to connect with another athletes.
While the traditional run course for RST is accessible to the public, athletes may swim, bike and/or run on any course of their choosing. Just be safe! At the conclusion of the race weekend, we will hold a Facebook Live event from a location in Reston on Sunday afternoon, August 2nd! We will announce Spirit Winners, raffles, silent auction winners, and give you a chance to tell your "WHY I TRI" story with special appearances by our Directors and Captains.
Virtual Category Options:
  • Run - Bike - Run (Default)
  • Bike - Run - Bike
  • Swim - Bike - Run
  • Athlete's Choice - Bike - Run
Athlete's choice means that you may alternatively opt for an exercise of your choosing for this leg of the event. The most creative "Athlete's Choice" exercise will win a Spirit Award! For the bike portion, athletes may use a stationary bike or bike outside. Walking instead of running is an option! 
  • The swim is ¼ mile (400 meters) in the pool of your choice
  • The bike segment is a total of 12 miles (20 Km) on the course of your choice
  • The run segment is a total 3 miles (5 Km) on the course of your choice
  • The Athlete's Choice segment replaces the swim segment.

To change your category, visit the registration self-management page and choose "Change Category." Athletes will complete their distance between July 30th and August 2nd. We encourage you to invite your friends and family to cheer you on!
