Have you heard of this race called, PeasantMan? Every year, 75% of the field is made up of DCTri club members, including ~100 NTPers. There are also another 75 DCTri club members who come out to volunteer. It was founded and run entirely by DCTri club members. It is the biggest concentration of DCTri club members at any race that you will ever go to. 100% of the proceeds go to charity. Come out, train, socialize, and perhaps pick up a sister wife/brother husband.
The race is held on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at Lake Anna (90 minutes drive from DC). However, on Saturday, May 6th, 175 athletes show to up engage in a variety of training opportunity. The most popular one is the open water swim that has buoys and kayak support. Last year, more than 150 triathlete participated in that. There are also other clinics designed for the newbies in the crowd. These include transition clinic, basic bike maintenance, and slew of others. We also ship in 80+ Dominos pizzas to feed the folks there. The entire weekend is like a triathlon training camp. The entire campsite and cabins at Lake Anna are occupied by PeasantMan triathletes.

This was my first tri ever and looking back — knowing what I know now — there could not have a better way to start my tri career. It’s low-key and friendly, while being professional at the same time. Highly recommended!February 13, 2017 at 1:10 pm #9914moseredParticipant
It’s hard to dislike the professional video, inc GoPro and a soaring drone camera, for that event:February 17, 2017 at 12:34 pm #9982
Don’t about the tables lined with free cupcakes at the finish line.February 26, 2017 at 11:42 am #10111

I hope I can make it this year…I opened my season with IM 70.3 Galveston…frankly, it wasn’t nearly as fun as Peasantman…$75 for Peasantman versus $350 bucks (plus airfare, bike shipment, meals…) for an IM branded race? Oh wait, I got a tech t-shirt and a pathetic bag too small for my two month old to use for anything other than her trisuit. Even though I got the rust off my system – I plan on wire brushing it a bit more with the dreaded Lake Anna hills in early May as well.April 17, 2017 at 5:36 pm #11305moseredParticipant
