Congratulations to all finishers of the Fort Ritchie Triathlon – Duathlon – Aquabike!
What an outstanding day for racing! We can not believe there was no impact from all the previous rain. Although it was hot it was a great day for racing. We want to express a huge “thank you” to all participants, vendors, partners, and sponsors who were a part of this event.

Congratulations to all our athletes who raced. We hope you reached your goals and enjoyed the event. We are enjoying the stories from the athletes, volunteers, and spectators about how the day went for each of you.

Special thanks to the Fort Ritchie Community Center, Catoctin Summit-Adolescent Program, Fire Police volunteers, Smithsburg EMS, Washington County Sheriff Department, Jersey Mike’s, Rocky’s Pizza, Traveling Munch Box, Hagerstown Special OPS rescue boat, and Hypnotic Imagery for being there to help us execute this event.

We had an amazing group of volunteers. We want to express our gratitude to all the volunteers who came out to support us. We could not have done it without our incredible race crew! Special thanks, once again, to Camp Louise for coming out in large numbers to support the race and for creating the “cheer sections” along the course.
