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.
PeasantMan generally attracts about 100 NTPers to the training/race weekend, so there will be a great mixture of newbies to the sport/DCTri and veteran DCTri members all co-mingling. Presumably, one of the reasons that you joined the club is to meet other like-minded people to socialize and train with. PeasantMan will give you that opportunity in a relax and fun environment.
The race is held on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at Lake Anna (90 minutes drive from DC). However, on Saturday, May 2nd, 100+ 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 100 triathlete participated in that. There are also other clinics designed for the newbies in the crowd. These include transition clinic, basic bike maintenance, and nutrition and run clinics that is run by a professional triathlon coach. These clinics are free to everyone in attendance. 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.
PeasantMan does not charge you a one day $14 USAT race fees like every triathlon in America. It is one of the cheapest triathlon to race in the East Coast.
