Luray Triathlon – one of the gems of the Virginia Triathlon Series

Posted by:

While Triathlon Trial Lawyer Doug Landau has not entered sufficient races in the Virginia Triathlon Series (“VTS”) this year, he nevertheless enjoys the competition and camaraderie of the events that Set-Up, Inc. puts on all over the middle Atlantic region. While he does not intend to race at the Olympic Distance in 2010, Landau is slated to compete in three sprint distance races, in Luray, Warrenton and Spotsylvania Virginia.

The Luray Triathlon is set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the beautiful town of Luray. A half mile one loop swim in pristine Lake Arrowhead gets athletes ready for the rolling 16.5 mile bike on paved roads surrounded by the woods and farms of the Shenandoah Valley. The race concludes with a 5K that is an out and back with rolling hills and all on the roads of Page County. Landau has competed successfully in the Olympic Distance Race, which uses much of the same routes.
