Bethesda Tri 4/19
POSTED: 3/16/09 10:38 AM

I'm thinking of doing this race -- is anyone else? It benefits autism. Note that it is April 19 at 7 am -- which is the day after the SC Tri Columbia brick-nic.

For more information about the Bethesda Tri (in its 9th year):
http://events.autismspeaks.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=301241&lis=1&kntae301241=CA8C3B56335D45AD82F2D5910E874B9A
It's a short sprint (250 m swim/9.3 mile bike/2.5 mile run) on the campus of Georgetown Prep (near White Flint mall). If anyone is interested in forming a team, I'd be up for that (although I have never done it before and am not sure how to do it -- is it just pick a name and show up? There's a team option at registration ($75 or $200 for premium registration).

If interested, you can contact me directly at:

I did the Bethesda CAN Tri back when it was at the Y. Great tune-up or training brick at the beginning of the season. Downside is it is in Bethesda, was on a Saturday and packet pickup was on Friday. Hi -- rush hour traffic. It's also way pricey for a super sprint (but benefits Autism). Wait for summer and do a DC Tri sprint for $5.

You're right about the price! DC training tri's are a better deal for sure. :) I live in Bethesda & my kid's an Asperger's kid, so that no doubt affects my view of the Bethesda tri. I might do it as a relay with a couple of friends, but if anyone wants to form a DC tri-esque team, despite the risk of having to say "hello rush hour," let me know. (I will throw in a tour of my exotic native lands -- White Flint safari!)

I've never been in the pool at Georgetown Prep, but the grounds are tree-lined and extensive (almost like "countryside" if you squint) so at least the run should be nice. The bike is along busy roads; don't know if a lane will be dedicated to it.

Grosvenor and Whiteflint metros are closeby, so don't let that discourage you.

Barbara, I'm thinking about this one too. Let me know if you register and want to do the "team" thing.

it's a great race for newbies (it was my first tri). it's close, and cheap. good way to get the kinks out.
