I have a friend who wants to get into the tris but is terrified of open water. Does anyone know of any good duathlons or triathlons with pool swims?

The DC Tri Club Tris in the summer have a pool swim at the Haines Point pool. Usually there are 3 races a season (one in each of June, July & August). Hugh runs them and does a fantastic job. These races are great for newbies bc of the low key-yet competitive environment. Get used to the swim, transitions and then T3 is a bbq with the club. Fun times. The Club of course runs duathlons in March and April.

Columbia Triathlon will hold the first Blackwater Duathlon. Looks like great training for Eagleman.

- note that Blackwater will be USAT nationals this year, so it'll be pretty fast.

I have friends who did Cascade Lake and enjoyed it.

In the past we have hosted duathlons at Hains Point in March, April and May as long as we can avoid cherry blossum season. Next year is a big five-week anniversary for cherry blossum so there probably won't be any plans for an event at HP during that time period.

I did this inaugural event last year when it was called Duthe2 and really enjoyed it. It attracted a lot of new duathletes.
