Why Are we Doing This?
This event is a two part effort to:
ONE: Raise awareness around mental and physical health in the DMV area and give the opportunity to anyone to take part to this innovative and impactful experience!
TWO: Raise Funds to help District Triathlon’s team break “The Speed Project Record”. The Speed Project 5.0 is a 340-mile running relay from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. It is an invite only race and District Triathlon was granted one of the coveted spots.
As we prepare to join 50 other teams from more than 10 countries, we need your help to break the 36:53:00 record! We can’t do it alone and we hope you’ll help us as we prepare to participate in one of the most strenuous (and maybe a little crazy!) races that exist!
