Join us on June 24, 2012 in scenic Howard County, MD for the first annual Celebrating Heroes Triathlon, an inspirational sprint triathlon to benefit MedStar National Rehabilitation Network.
Taking place amid the rolling countryside, this unique event will celebrate both the able bodied and the challenged athlete. TriColumbia, widely regarded as the Mid-Atlantic’s premier endurance event production company, is sponsoring the event.
Proceeds from Celebrating Heroes will help support MedStar NRH's sports programs, free clinics in the Washington, DC area that engage both children and adults in adaptive sports such as basketball, tennis and rugby. MedStar NRH provides these opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so that they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. TriColumbia and NRH share the belief that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances the quality of life.
Teams may be able bodied or challenged, or a combination of the two. The triathlon is comprised of a .62 mile swim, a 17.5 mile bike ride and a 3.4 mile run through Centennial Park in Ellicott City, MD. Click here for a course map.

TriColumbia is also offering boot camps and clinics leading up to the event. These will focus on swimming, biking cadence and gearing, running, transitions, nutrition and training plans. Registrants for the 2012 Celebrating Heroes event will have the option to register for a clinic on a first come, first served basis.
