Tentative date for 2015 is April 12th!
Registration opens November 1st!
Located in the heart of Lynchburg, VA this early season pool sprint is one of the few urban venues in the VTS lineup. A 300 meter swim is followed by some urban riding to take athletes to the open rolling bike course along the James river. This out and back course is fast with some technical sections and short steep climbs. The first and last miles of the run take athletes through scenic downtown Lynchburg with the middle mile on local bike paths. Save some energy for the last climb coming back into town so you can look great running across the finish line in downtown Lynchburg!

Updating Your Swim Time
The last day to change your swim time is Friday, April 18th. You can do this by logging into your profile, selecting this race registration and updating your swim time. Be sure to enter your time in MM:SS format.
Based upon your estimated 100 yard swim time you will be assigned a specific start time. It is in your best interest to submit a time as accurate as possible. Submitting a time that is too fast for you puts you up with swimmers who will be passing you during the swim - not good for you or them. Putting a time that is too slow places you with slower swimmers and forces you to have to pass everyone. The ideal scenario for all participants is to have people submit accurate times - the whole swim flows better.
Note - You should not submit your "all-out effort" time. The time that should be submitted your the 100-yard "pace" that you can maintain for the entire swim.
