POST RACE COOKOUT
Yolanda will be bringing a cooler with ice if anyone would like to store food/drinks for the post race cookout. Her # is 301-641-7580, let me know if you have questions or need anything!

We will be parking our cars at Hains point morning of the race 5:30am before the streets close at 6am. Everyone is responsible to contributing something to the cookout. Donations help fund events like this. 

DT will be providing a grill, utensils, charcoal and woodchips. There will also be a bike rack to safely hold your backs while we kick back.

Support our Work

Since 2016, we have become a 501(c)3 nonprofit and have grown our membership from 3 to 100. Because triathlons are a sport with very few minorities and People of Color, we provide coaching and moral support through tailored trainings such as structured programming focused on improving proficiency within swimming, biking, and running. DT works together as a team and a close community so all members can reach their personal goals and share their stories with the community further spreading our mission.

Today, proceeds from grants, donors and membership support youth & adult sporting events such as our Mindathlon, Splash and Dash and various initiatives that foster healthy eating and lifestyle habits, mental health services & webinars. We also provide current & aspiring student athletes with a strong foundation for success. We cannot keep being successful without your support.


Why is fitness so important?*

  • – Physically active people have a healthier state of mind;
  • – Black DC residents have a significantly higher rate of overweight and obesity as compared to white residents (66 percent black versus 40 percent white);
  • – In DC, ~34% of 10 – 17 year olds and ~23% of adults are obese or overweight.
  • – More than 80% of adults do not meet the guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities, and more than 80% of adolescents do not do enough aerobic physical activity to meet the guidelines for youth;

Not only does your sponsorship promote the Tri Club, it also supports our events and programming such as  DC Splash and Dash, Mindathlon, Youth coaching and mentorship and mental health and wellness events throughout the year. 

We hope you’ll join, volunteer or donate to help us fulfill our mission in the DC community.
