Kinetic Sprint




Tentative date for 2015 is May 10th!

Registration opens November 1st!


The Kinetic Sprint is one of the early seasons best sprint triathlons. This event has a 9AM start so you can sleep in a little for this one! Staged out of beautiful Lake Anna State Park this event is easy to get to and has sold out the past 7 years.

The triangular shaped swim course transitions into an 15.5 mile rolling bike course on the rural roads of Spotsylvania county. With only 3 turns outside of the park this really is a fast course. We have modified the run course so it only has one hill (coming out of transition) and is all inside the park on a combination of paved walking paths and roads.

Water Temperature: We expect the water temperature to be in the mid 60's. (64F in 2012, 66F in 2013).

Affiliated Charities

This event benefits Knights of Columbus.

Water Temperature

Every year we get literally hundreds of emails regarding what the water temperature is for this event. The reality is that we don't know what the water temperature is, or what it will be on race day. However, we do have a system of gauging the current temperature via the following two websites:

Dominion Power North Anna Station

Sturgeon Creek Marina

Once we get to the race site several days prior to the event we will take a water temperature and post it at several locations on the VTS website, as well as, on the VTS Facebook page.  Rest assured that once we know we will let you know!
