The first of the TRI-IT NOW Triathlons were held at the The Freedom Aquatic & Fitness Center in
Manassas, Virginia on 26 March 2017 and of course W4OVH members were there to ensure participants were always kept under the eyes of W4OVH to help ensure safety and road course security.
This was the perfect short-distance multisport event to start off everyone’s season! The Tune Up Tri is an excellent race for beginners, and also a great opportunity for more experienced athletes to use as a gauge of your fitness early in the season. It’s a tune-up…for everyone to hone their skills and remember what it feels like to race 3 sports in one event!
The event had a slight ‘twist’ on the traditional order of events, designed to allow everyone to get an early-season triathlon fix regardless of the weather! With short distances and a pool swim, the Tune Up Tri was the perfect start for the participants to begin their triathlon season.
The categories included triathlon, duathlon, aquabike, tri-relay teams and participant ages were 10 through adult.
The OVH had a great turn-out to support the event and were looking forward to the triathlon events of the rest of the season.
