Micro Triathlon 2015: Inaugural Event

Near-freezing temperatures this morning, Sunday Oct 18th, did not discourage participants in our inaugural “Micro Triathlon” held at Williams Wharf in Mathews County.  After pre-race instructions, the event started at 8:45am and the outside temperature hovered around 40 degrees – the water temp was more favorable at about 65.

After finishing a quarter mile swim in the open water, racers ran to the transition area to prepare for their 8 mile bike ride along scenic backroads of Mathews County.  The triathlon capped off with a 2 mile run: out-and-back along Williams Wharf Road.  The distances for this “Micro Triathlon” were intentionally shorter than a regulation triathlon – and the focus was training/ practicing the Transitions between swim & bike, and bike & run.
