Event details and schedule

Hello IronMed Athletes!

We are excited for this year’s IronMed Triathlon and 5K event this upcoming Saturday, April 8th. A few things to keep in mind as race day approaches:

 

Triathlon Info (750m Swim, 12mi Bike, 5K run)

1) Packet Pickup which includes your T-shirt, bib number, and swim cap will be from 10am-1pm or 5pm-7pm on Friday, April 7th OR race day from 5:30am-6:45am at Yates Field House at Georgetown University Campus.

 

2) The first wave of the triathlon will start at 7:00am! Yes, this is bright and early, but a great way to start your day. We will be starting the swim portion of the event in waves. There will be two participants per lane for a total of 16 people in the pool per wave. Exact start times and the breakdown for each start wave will be released no later than Friday ,April 7th.

 

3) If you plan on driving to the event, parking will probably be easiest if you park on the street nearby Georgetown's campus and walk to Yates Field House. Additionally, there are parking garages available on the Georgetown campus however you will need cash or credit to pay to park there.

 

4) Click here for maps of the 20k bike course and the 5k running course (We are using the same route as 2009).

The transition will be located behind Yates Field House right by the pool. The bike portion of the event will proceed down the hill from Yates field house and will connect onto the Capital Crescent trail. From there the bike will be an out and back course for a total of 12 miles. The 5k run will be similar, but will utilize the dirt tow-path alongside the canal.

 

5) The finish will be located near transition, and refreshments will be waiting for you at the finish line!

 

 

5k Run/Walk Info

1) Packet Pickup which includes your T-shirt and bib number will be from 10am-1pm or 5pm to 7pm on Friday, April 7th OR race day from 7:00am-8:30am at Yates Field House at Georgetown University Campus.

 

2) The 5k race will begin at 8:30 am and follow the 5k running course that the triathlon is using as well.
