  • New - post race food by Buz & Ned's! More food, no stairs, & vegetarian options. Olympic-distance course added for your buddies!
  • New - relay match program, matching up swimmers with bikers or runners! Email with your interest. 
  • Check out this awesome video of the Richmond Rox course, the only Half Iron Distance race in Richmond
  • We are serious, but not quite THIS serious! I am a Triathlete 
  • Racer swag will include finisher medals, Headsweats visors, post race meal ticket, and race shirts, to name a few.
  • Race site is located just 1 mile east of downtown Richmond at Rocketts Landing Village, Richmond's premier river front community with great views of downtown!
  • The swim is in the James River, a 360-mile long waterway that starts in the Shenandoah Mountains and flows all the way to the Chesapeake Bay.
  • The bike course heads east into rural Varina, rolling, but not difficult with grades.
  • The run heads west into historic downtown Richmond, along the canal walk, Brown's & Belle Islands, across the pedestrian bridge over the river, back across the flood wall, loops back again on the VA Capital Trail, then finishes at Rocketts right on the river down below the Boathouse & Conch Republic Restaurants!  M Bistro who is catering the post race food is located up top near transition. Parts of the run course have amazing views of the city and are off your normal boring out & back roadways.  We think you will be pleasantly surprised!
  • Gatorade Endurance is our drink sponsor!  There will be 2 bottle handoffs on the bike course and aid stations are every mile on the run.
  • Post race party will be held outside on the river below The Boathouse with spectacular views of the river & Richmond.
  • Best time of year to race in central VA.... wheels down!
