New "REV3 Rush" Race Format Added to REV3 Series


rev3rush.pngREV3 Triathlon is bringing the dynamic fast draft-legal format of racing, called REV3 Rush to Richmond, Virginia and the the Richmond International Raceway on May 24 & 25. REV3 Rush will feature racing for amateurs in a variety of divisions- standard age groups, mixed relays, club/team relays, and youth/juniors.

REV3 Rush is a triathlon distance of 250-meter swim, 5-mile bike, and a 1.25-mile run. The swim will be in two, 25 meter pools in the center of the raceway. The bike will go along the track and allows drafting or riding in a pack. The run will circle the infield. Each athlete will race a minimum of two races and a maximum of six races, with various races through the preliminary heats. The fastest times will then move on to a semi or final heat. In addition, each athlete has the option of racing in a mixed team relay which will be included in the athlete's entry fee. On Sunday, the fastest age groupers will compete against each other to determine the overall champion.

The dynamic style of this distance of racing is engaging and centered in an arena so to be spectator friendly. Once the heat exits the pool, and is onto the bike, the next heat goes off. The action will be high and the energy full throttle.

"REV3 is thrilled to be offering this experience to all ages and all abilities," Charlie Patten, President of Rev3 said. "The distances and racing format offer a unique multisport experience to all athletes of all abilities - from the gym triathlete used to swimming in a pool and riding a spin bike to the road-versatile pro. We are excited to bring Rush to the active Richmond community."

"The Greater Richmond area is known for its active lifestyle, and we look forward to partnering with Revolution 3 on this new and unique event at Richmond International Raceway (RIR)," said Dennis Bickmeier, President of Richmond International Raceway. "Being active and having fun with family and friends are key elements of this event, and when you blend that with RIR as the backdrop, this will be one of those must attend, or must try, events. This will be a great addition to an already very busy 2014 event schedule at RIR."

Registration will open February 3rd for the 2014 REV3 Rush in Richmond, VA.
