Road Closures Planned for Arlington Youth Triathlon

Some roads will close on Sunday for the 2017 Arlington Youth Triathlon.

The children-only triathlon includes a swimming race, a bike race and a run. The race will begin in the pool at Washington-Lee High School, followed by a loop bike course and a flat run on the outdoor track at Washington-Lee.

“The races are intended to encourage children to have fun while participating in physical activities,” according to an online event listing. “The swim-bike-run disciplines of triathlon are life-long sports that support a healthy lifestyle from childhood through adulthood.”

The road closures will take place roughly between 7:30-10:30 a.m. at the following locations:

  • N. Quincy Street between Washington Blvd and 15th Street N.
  • 15th Street N. between N. Quincy Street and N. Stafford Street
  • N. Stafford Street between Washington Blvd and 15th Street N.

Police said street parking in the area will be restricted, and motorists should be on the lookout for temporary “No Parking” signs. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed or towed.
