Registration for the 2014 RTC Sprint is now open and once again, club members will get to race for an amazingly low price- just $30 if you sign up before the January price bump! We are excited to welcome aboard Bon Secours as our new presenting sponsor.
For the second year, this race will take place at the Collegiate School Aquatic Center /GRAP and feature an open water-style swim, complete with turn buoys. We have taken your suggestions from last year and will start the race an hour earlier, allowing more time between swim waves. The bike and run courses are fast and flat, offering a great way to test your speed early in the race season. The top RTC finishers in each age group will be recognized on the Club trophy.
We are pleased to welcome back GroundForce IT as a race sponsor. Peluso Open Water is the swim course sponsor and Poole & Poole Architecture is sponsoring the run.
Training programs are available for this race (additional fees apply): Peluso Open Water and Endorphin Fitness will be partnering up once again to offer the GRAP Tri Training Team with coached workouts at the race site beginning February 3. The entire CVE/YMCA Program, now offered at every Richmond YMCA, will be training for the RTC Sprint as well.
This year's race is sure to sell out again so reserve your spot quickly. The club discount code will be published in the TRI NEWS.
Not planning to race? We are recruiting volunteers now! This event is run completely by volunteers so your help is greatly appreciated. More information in paragraph below.
The RTC Sprint can't happen without our amazing volunteers. Year after year we hear about how well run our races are and how friendly the volunteers are. Thank you!

T-shirt and brunch provided for all volunteers.
