The 2018 Nation's Escape Triathlon course is one of the most spectacular and athlete friendly courses in the world winding past monuments, memorials and history through the Nation's Capital. Our swim takes place in the scenic and calm Potomac River, where you will swim past Arlington Cemetery and under the Memorial Bridge twice.
Swim start is next to our transition area and the finish line, so family and friends can watch more of your race! The bike route is flat and fast, winding past the Potomac River, the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, and the Kennedy Center. There is no bike course like it in the world.
The run route is a challenging and beautiful two-loop Olympic and single-loop Sprint Course takes competitors past the Tidal Basin, Jefferson Memorial, National Holocaust Memorial, US Mint, Hains Point, and more. Our finish line is adjacent to the transition area and swim start making it ideal for family and friends. The Finish Line Festival has live music, free food for athletes, free post-race athlete services and instant results printed for you right when you finish!
