About RATS: The Reston Area Triathletes, or RATS, started during triathlon’s first boom in the early 1980s. The club was re-started in February of 2001 with some of the original members working with some newer triathletes in the area. The informal club grew out of the long-standing weekly bike ride that follows the Reston Masters Saturday swim workout. While most members live or work in the Reston area (including Sterling, Vienna, Oakton, Cascades, and Ashburn), there are members from Arlington, Chantilly, and even Maryland.
RATS hosts several events throughout the year, offered first to members and subsequently to non-members. These are semi-organized training days with door-prizes raffled off to those who attend. RATS became an official USAT club in October of 2002 and now has more than 100 members. Almost 1,000 people subscribe to our publicly available email list.
