EZ Dock handles 3400 swimmers in less than 2 hours!

In 2006, the first Nation’s Triathlon took place in Washington, DC, with an ambitious goal: to become the largest, most organized and well-produced triathlon in the world.

Now in its third year, this stellar athletic event has partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to become the first triathlon to help cure blood cancers: leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

On September 14 we attended the event and captured the following pictures which represented 3,400 participants in the first event of three – The Swim – 1.5K using the EZ Dock system for entering and existing the Potomac River.

Located between the Jefferson and Washington Memorials the swimmers entered the water and went North under the Memorial Bridge with active monitors in the water using kayaks, Washington DC Metropolitan Police Harbor Division, the DC Fire and EMS Departments, National Park Service and U.S. Coast Guard.
