awardschildretentThe Old Capital Triathlon is coming back to Milledgeville under a new name and new management. The “old but new” GEORGIA MILITARY COLLEGE OLD CAPITAL TRIATHLON will return to Milledgeville, May 25, 2014. This is the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, so start preparing now! The sprint triathlon will feature the same 500 yard swim to start at the Legacy at Sinclair at 7am. The bike will then commence after the swim and go a long distance of 18 miles down the street of Log Cabin, around the airport, and then through a cut across on Marshall Rd. and then return to Log Cabin Rd. towards the Country Club. The run will remain a 5K through the golf course of the Milledgeville Country Club and under the shady trees of Sinclair Dam Rd. until the athletes are routed back to the Legacy at Sinclair to finish back at the lake. The race will feature the same awesome BBQ as it has in the last 3 years accompanied by other awesome side dishes provided by those in the community. This homegrown triathlon has been supported by the Milledgeville community in the past, but now there’s an even better reason to give this race a big push. Monies raised by the race will be donated to the Georgia Military College Foundation to build additional student scholarship funds for those students in need of assistance. 

Come for a race, enjoy the beautiful scenery, eat some serious BBQ post-party!!!!! See you soon!
