This is my first year doing triathlons and am looking for a fun Tri olympic distance or shorter. Right now my last race of the year is Nation's this September and was looking for one in the October-ish time frame and don't mind driving a bit for the race if it is a good one.
So where do you experienced folks like to close out the season?
The Giant Acorn races races are fun. There's an Olympic and Sprint (one on Saturday, one on Sunday of the same weekend). They're often in October, but this year they're in the last weekend in September.
There's a handful of late season races in the area. Chesapeake man and Waterman's Half are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head but they're long course.
