Team Z Colonial Beach Triathlon Race Weekend Details
Hi guys – We are trying to figure out which trailer goes where, who is on first, and what is on Second for next weekend (Mussleman and Colonial Beach Races on same sweekend). Ryan will be posting the event brite for Mussleman tomorrow.
Note: Colonial Beach is a very, very small town. There are not many options for anything – including hotels or restaurants. If you are late to the game – I was able to get a room at The Woodside Inn – about 15 minutes from the race site. For dinner – unless you want Mcdonald’s, Seafood, Thai, or road side bbcue stands – Ledo Pizza is it. They have pasta/salads/etc.
We are currently planning to eat dinner at Ledo both nights. I will confirm this after I see how many of you will be coming. Be sure to “buy” (they are free) a ticket for each person you would have with you at dinner on Friday or Saturday. If for some reason we can’t fit – there are 400 triathletes in town and 5 restaurants – I will have them cater our dinner at the race site. More to come on these details.
Everything else is standard. And I’m excited. I’ve not been to this race in 8 years or so – before it was owned by SetUp Events. Cute little town – great race production company – awesome event!
Colonial Beach is about 1:45 to 2:00 from Arlington. Fair warning if you leave after noon on Friday you are nuts – and in for it in terms of traffic. DEFFINITELY TAKE Route 5 through Clinton and Waldorf on your way to 301 over the Potomac River.
