Revolution3 Welcome’s you to Knoxville, Tennessee the Volunteer State and our first race of the 2014 triathlon season.
Welcome triathletes, volunteers, spectators, family, and friends to Knoxville! You will notice the Sunsphere as the backdrop to the weekend’s festivities. The Sunsphere was a symbol of the 1982 World’s Fair which was one of the most successful in US history. Where the fair took place is our expo for the weekend, World’s Fair Park!
Knoxville is also home to the University of Tennessee Volunteers, you will see a lot of Orange around town considering our race and expo is within a couple of miles from campus. You can visit the University of Tennessee campus or check out the many restaurants on “the strip” aka Cumberland Avenue. You can also go to Market Square which is walking distance from the expo. This is a great spot for a pre or post race meal. For information and directions to all of these restaurants visit us at the information tent in the Rev3 Expo and we will have maps for everyone.
Revolution3 is excited to be back to Knoxville for our fifth year with our Olympic and Half distance triathlon on Sunday May 18, 2014. This year Knoxville, Tennessee is the venue for our inaugural Revolution3 Series Championship! We will have over 50 professional athletes competing for a prize purse of $75,000 and a Series payout of $100,000. The Professionals aren’t the only ones taking home some cold hard cash. All Age Group athletes who qualified and are competing in the Championship will be award cash prizes if they finish top three in their age group! We are thrilled to be returning to Knoxville, Tennessee for another great year and some fast racing!
