From LLS of Alexandria:


Washington D.C. (April 27, 2011) – The Nation’s Triathlon™ to Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is sold out, but you can still participate by joining LLS’s Team In Training® (TNT) program.


Taking place on September 11, 2011, in the nation’s capital, The Nation’s Tri will mark its fourth year of bringing together triathletes for the common cause of helping cancer patients live longer better lives while taking on one of the country’s premiere athletic events. 


The Nation's Triathlon course takes you past the spectacular monuments and landmarks of historic Washington, D.C., including a 1.5K swim in the Potomac River, a 40K bike ride through scenic vistas, and a 10k run through downtown D.C.


TNT participants raise funds to support lifesaving cancer research. In return they get a customized training plan from TNT’s certified coaches; scheduled group runs with the coach and a supportive team; tips on form, injury prevention, hydration and nutrition.  TNT now also offers TNT Flex, a customized, online training option.

Klein, LLS chief marketing and revenue officer. “Team In Training will help them get to the finish line, while they have the satisfaction of helping us get the ultimate finish line – beating cancer,”
