Must Read

The Arlington Triathlon, in memory of Anne Viviani, is a kids-only event starting at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, June 12 at Washington-Liberty High School.

The event features a pool swim, a bike ride and a track run. The age groups for boys and girls are ages 7 to 8, 9 to 10, 11 to 12 and 13 to 15. The distances differ for each age group.

The oldest 13 to 15 participants will swim 250 yards in the Washington-Liberty Aquatics Center pool, bike 5.6 miles, then finish with a 1.4-mile run on the W-L track.

The event is hosted by Triathlon Family USA, Inc., the organization that manages the Arlington Triathlon Club.


The club coaches public-school children from elementary grades and older.

For decades, Arlington resident Viviani was a highly-accomplished athlete, winning multiple triathlon, duathlon and aquathlon medals, and nine national championships in triathlon and duathlon. Viviani died in 2018, while driving home from a race in South Carolina with her husband, Donn, when a deer struck their vehicle.

Donn Viviani often hands out the medals at the Arlington Triathlon.
