Description:

Welcome to Washington, NC usually referred to as Little Washington by folks down east! Washington's rich history adds to the character of the community. The settlement of Washington was laid out in 1775 on the northern bank of the Pamlico/Tar River by Colonel James Bonner and named in honor of General George Washington, his commander-in-chief. The City was incorporated by an act of the North Carolina General Assembly in 1782. It became the county seat of Beaufort County in 1785, an honor previously held by the Town of Bath, North Carolina's oldest town, located 15 miles east.

There are numerous towns named Washington in the United States, but Washington, NC, is the first to have been named for General Washington (prior to his being named our nation's first president). Therefore, Washington, NC, is "The Original Washington."

RACE COURSES

The triangular clockwise swim will be in the Pamlico River, a river off the Pamlico Sound.  The swim is slightly salty and has a little current.  The swim exits onto a sandy beach that is less than 25 yards from transition area.  The IOS 100 will be 2 laps and the FS 50 1 lap of a 1 mile course.

The 88 and 44 mile bike courses are completely flat loop courses starting in Washington Park  then riding through Beaufort County.  The bike courses have smooth surface.You should be able to PR these bike courses!

The 10 mile and 5 mile run courses are completely flat and run into Downtown Historic Washington by the waterfront.  The IOS 100 course will do 2 laps turning around at the water stop just before the finish line and FS 50 will be out and back.

The Sprint run course will go out then finish back just past the first water stop.  Water stations are provided at the transition area exit, 1 mile mark and the run turnaround.  The finish line is across the street from the transition area.

The race course revolves around a transition area next to Washington Park Waterfront.  The same transition area will be used for all phases.  The transition area will open at 5am; ALL bikes need to be placed in position before the transition area closes at 6:45am.
