    "I am proud to sponsor the Pink Power Triathlon and I cheer on all the courageous women and girls who train hard and participate in this great race! See you on the course!" - Rebecca Angus, DDS 

The Scoop!

  • All women... regardless of age /color / religion /ability /weight /whatever "label" that exists... just doesn't matter. Show off or don't, this tri is a happy place! 

  • It's near the end of summer, so you have all year to train. It's your time, ladies! Reunite with your best friends, mom, daughter, cousin, college buddy, high school bud, niece, neighborhood, or women's group. Participate as an individual or as a relay team. Many race options are available: individual, relay, athena, aquabike (no run).

  • Pool swim at the Midlothian YMCA : the pool is a heated, outdoor 25 meter lap. This year we use BOTH pools to speed up the swim start: only half the wait! Not comfortable with swimming? No problem! Walk it, breast stroke, back stroke, hang on the lane line, wait at the wall... "breathe" ... but just make forward progress!

  • 11.9 mile rolling bike course does have a few good hills

  • 5K Run course winds through the beautiful Midlothian Mines park and adjacent neighborhood

Course Maps and Course Descriptions

 

Swim

Swim Map

This is a 400 meter "snake" swim in an outdoor 25 meter pool. Ladies start one at a time swim up and down lane 1, go under the lane line, then repeat in lanes 2 through 8 for a total of 400 meters. Swimmers will start at 10-15 second intervals. Swim caps are not required for pool swim triathlons.

The lanes are 4 ½ to 5 ½ feet deep, the slide well is the only place that’s 6 feet deep and you ladies better not be going down the slide!

The swim cut-off time is 18 minutes. 

Bike

Bike Course Map

The 11 mile bike course is on rolling roads through Chesterfield County. Police & directional volunteers will be at all major intersections but the course is not closed to traffic. The main course goes through Charter Colony Parkway. There is a good hill coming back up Charter Colony pkwy, be prepared and do some training on hills to help you prepare. It is a slightly shorter course than most sprints but not without its own challenges. The bike course is closed at 10am, police and volunteers are released. Hypothetically, if you are one of the last to get in the pool at 8:30am, with an 18 min cutoff, you will exit the pool at 8:48am. You will have 72 minutes to complete 11 miles on the bike course or an average of 9.4miles per hour. Aquabike (swim and bike only) athletes will finish their race at the Bike Dismount line and will get their medals in Transition.

Run

Run Course Map

The 5k course follows paved pathways around a beautiful lake through the Midlothian mines park and into adjoining neighborhoods with one hill in "the Grove" neighborhood on your way back to the YMCA. There will be aid stations each mile with water and Gatorade. Get ready for your all male volunteers to cheer you on. They are always excited to out on the run course aid stations for you with a new theme at each one! There is a big hill coming out of the Grove on your way back to the Midlo Y. It is downhill on the way out, flat around the lake, rolling in the neighborhood, but the last half mile is tough up hill on Woolridge back home. Be prepared in practice, do some fun hill repeats with a buddy and you will be ready. Run course closes at 11am, all volunteer and police support is released at that time. Including the swim and bike cutoff times, you will have about 1 hour to finish the run or a walkers pace of 3.1 mph, not including transition times. So don't lollygag around in transition, get moving, you can do it! It's a race!
