The Kinetic Triathlon Festival features the Mid-Atlantic’s first Long Course race and open water Olympic distance triathlon of the season on Saturday and a nice Sprint on Sunday. Staged out of beautiful Lake Anna State Park, this race features a sandy beach start, a crisp (mid 60’s) freshwater swim, rolling country roads for the bike and a run course that stays completely within the State Park. The race is amazing for so many reasons, but the best part is the park itself. Banked stadium style seating overlooks the swim start/finish area which includes the finish line and Fairwinds Brewery post race party. Bring the family as the park features miles of trails, a playground, swimming beach and visitors center featuring a “gold mine”. Outside the park you can relax post race at the Lake Anna Winery or the Coyote Hole Cider Works. Be sure to race with friends and make some new ones at the Kinetic Triathlon Festival.
