New Triathlon Coming to Williamsburg

Revolution3 Triathlon is excited to announce a new race in Williamsburg, Virginia. On June 23, 2013, Revolution3 will hold a Half and Olympic Distance race steps away from historic Colonial Williamsburg. Pro and age group athletes are invited to compete in both distances. For the Professional athletes, cash prizes and series points will be awarded.

imageThe half distance consists of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run, while the Olympic distance consists of a .9 mile swim, 28 mile bike and a 6.2 mile run. The swim will take place in the James River, near the historic Jamestown Island. Athletes will then transition to the bike portion of the race, an out and back course that meanders through the quaint countryside of James City County and finishes on the campus of the College of William and Mary. The course is mostly flat, with a few rolling hills to keep you honest. From there, the run course loops around the City of Williamsburg and back through the college campus. Like the bike course, the run is mostly flat, with a few hills scattered throughout. Athletes will finish in heart of William and Mary and just steps away from some of the most historic sites within the United States.

“We’re very excited to add Williamsburg to our race lineup. Williamsburg is a great fit for a family experience, which is one of our biggest factors in choosing a race location,” said Charlie Patten, president of Rev3. “In addition to a beautiful and challenging course, there is a wealth of opportunities for families to explore in the area. You are literally steps away from Historic Williamsburg”

“The Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance & Sports Williamsburg welcome the REV3 (Revolution 3)Williamsburg half and Olympic triathlon to the Historic Triangle and look forward to working with the team at REV 3 to make this a premier sporting event. The Williamsburg area, long known as one of America’s favorite vacation destinations, is the perfect location for this family-focused event. Perhaps nowhere else does the exciting story of America come to life more vividly than in America’s Historic Triangle: Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. The unmatched combination of hands-on history, thrilling theme parks, world-class golf, arts and culture, fine dining and shopping will delight participants and their families.”

- Bob Harris, Senior Vice President of Tourism for the Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance.
