Any "local" sprint tri's in Oct?

Hi there! I just recovered from broken elbow so looking to make up for missing the DC Tri due to injury. I'm a newbie and need to stick with a sprint ... most fall tri's appear to be Olympic distances. I found one at Cape Henlopen, DE. I'd prefer something closer to home if possible. Thanks!

I'm new too and have the Giant Acorn the first weekend of October planned. Its down at Lake Anna (about 1.5-2 hours from DC area). If your elbow is ready the weekend before there is a race in MD called the Hammerman in Chase. Anyway if you go to trifind dot com you can search by distance and state what kind of race you want to do. Hope to see you out there!

Hi Kimberly,

Here is a list I put together a few weeks ago that may be useful to you. All of these races are within a 2.5 hour drive, and many are much closer than that. By the way, "super sprints" are particularly short sprints, in case you haven't heard the term.

Sun 8/22 - Pink Power Tri (Richmond, VA)
http://www.pinkpowertri.racesonline.com/
note: super sprint with pool swim

Sat 8/28 - DC Tri Club training triathlon (Hains Point)
note: only $10!!

Sun 8/29 - Spring Ridge Sprint (Frederick, MD)
http://www.triitnow.com/SpringRidgeSprint.htm
note: super sprint with pool swim

Sun 9/12 - Delaware Diamondman Sprint (Bear, DE)

note: same day as Nation's

Sun 9/19 - Warrenton Sprint (Warrenton, VA)

Myrtle beach!!!!! There's a sprint option.(Oct 2) Might not call that local but considering theres such a large contingent of us headed down, it would be easy to get to and you'd have plenty of friends/support.

Just look in the buzz, recent newsletters, everywhere on this website for more info.
