The Most Anticipated New Races Of 2013

Rev3 Williamsburg (Williamsburg, Va.)
June 23, 2013, Half-iron and Olympic
Just steps away from Colonial Williamsburg, the nation’s largest living history museum, this Rev3 race will feature a swim in the James River, a bike course through the countryside and a finish on the campus of the College of William and Mary, the second oldest college in the nation.

LeadmanTri Epic 125 (Tempe, Ariz.)
April 14, 2013
Moved from the outskirts of Vegas to Tempe, the Leadman 125 (made up of a 2.5K swim, 111.5K bike and 11K run) will feature a flat and fast (and possibly windy) bike course and a run partly on trail through Papago Park. If that’s too intimidating, opt for the Life Time Tri sprint- or Olympic-distance races, or spectate at the USAT Collegiate National Championships the day before.

Rocketman Florida
Triathlon (Titusville, Fla.)
May 5, 2013, Half-iron, modified Olympic and sprint
Here’s your chance to compete on the grounds of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, where you’ll ride past iconic space program landmarks, as well as near the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Keep an eye out for bald eagles!
