The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club is volunteering with The Greater Cleveland Sports Commission (GCSC). GCSC serves to measurably improve the economy of Greater Cleveland and enrich the community by attracting, creating, managing, and enhancing significant sporting and competitive events.
GCSC supports the economy, utilizes sports as a vehicle to forward community agendas and maintains a goal of producing events that are more successful when held in Cleveland than in other cities.

USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships
Date: August 10th
Location: Edgewater Park and surrounding downtown neighborhoods
About the Event: USA Triathlon’s Age Group National Championships will feature approximately 6,000 athletes and another 10,000 spectators from across the United States. We expect that 4,500 of those athletes and 8,500 spectators will travel to the Greater Cleveland area from outside of the region. This event is projected to generate $6.5 million in economic impact for Northeast Ohio.
The Age Group Nationals features a Saturday Olympic-distance triathlon, for which athletes must qualify to compete. The race, which covers a 1,500-meter swim, 40-kilometer bike, and 10-kilometer run, will qualify top athletes in each age group to represent Team USA at the International Triathlon Union Age Group World Championships. The World Champions will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2019, and Edmonton, Alberta, in 2020.
The championship race will be followed by a Sunday sprint triathlon that is open to public competitors. Sprint athletes will cover a 750-meter swim, 20-kilometer bike, and 5-kilometer run along the shore of Lake Erie overlooking downtown Cleveland.
What we're doing: Our volunteers will be assisting with the Saturday morning race in the AID station. Volunteers will check in at registration & all volunteers will receive hospitality and a t-shirt that they are expected to wear during their shift. You are encouraged to bring sunscreen, a rain jacket, umbrella, water, or a hat – you never know what a Cleveland morning could look like! It's going to be a wonderful event, & we're excited to have you join us!
