Hey guys just an FYI from Hyatt regency Reston the 505 bus does not start till 0720 and metro trains start at 0700 on Saturdays. There is a 574 bus that leaves Reston town centre at 0600 0640 and 0720 that will get you to tysons west park transit station and you will need to walk down international drive about a mile to get to tysons tower. I understand this is a lot with your gear otherwise there is über and taxi services! Be safe and see you soon!

Hi! I'm canadian and looking to join a team male or mixte... Anyone need a teamate?!
Hello, i don't have steel toed boots for stair race. Is it obligatory? Thanks

Hi All, I'm registered for the individual men 50+, men team 40+ and mixed team 40+. Though I'm registered for team competition I'm currently not part of any team. What do I need to do to get added to a combined team?
Well, I found it hidden under "Sports" at top of this page.
hi! I just join the group...schedule, date please?
Hi folks. I'm registered for the heavyweight full gear stair race. I'm 39 years old but my registration confirmation says age bracket 18+. Anyone else experienced this or have I misunderstood something?
Hi Rodney ¡
again my question about if we can leave our gear after the meeting there.
it will be great if it's possible, cause as you know in the evening we have the opening ceremony , so we don't need to go back to hotel again.
thanks, Jose Antonio , MadridFD.
Hi Rodney ¡
I´m Jose Antonio , From Madrid FD.
I just want to know if it´s possible after the meeting, and check the gear, let the gear there.
And another question in Europe we don´t have NFPA, we´ve got UNE, in the case of firefigthers we have UNE 439 for the gear,i imagine like in others games will be ok.
Thanks Jose Antonio
For the Firefighter full gear event can you use your personal NFPA certified gear does it have to be issued gear from your Fire Department?
How is it that the stair race event doesn't have sport T-shirts?
during the games. The advertised...Hi Daryl, You will be able to get a generic shirt with a logo that can be screen printed on site with "Stair Race" beneath the logo. This will be available at Lerner Town Square. www.tysonstownsquare.com/
during the games. The advertised merchandise on fairfax2015 is not handled by the sports coordinators. Please let me know if you have any further questions or you can check on this at time of competitor registration at Reston Town Center.

Greetings from Smyrna, GA. I agree completely. People should take pride in being fair. I hope to meet you both in June.
Good post, Rene. I know Rodney and I am very confident that he and his team will facilitate a fair competition.
hi Brothers, regarding the stari Race competition I make my experience in 2011 and 2013 and I find out that many Athlets not wear the regular gear.For example - there were guys which not wear the regular boots. Boots without the steelbar and guys which cut there trousers. That´s not fair in compere to the firefighters which wear the regular stuff!!!For example one boot with the steelbar weights round about2,5 Pounds!!that means that athlets which wear boots WITHOUT the steelbar safe 5 Pounds...Stair Race
I arrive on the 25th evening. Can the gear be inspected on the 26th ok prior to the opening ceremony and if so where is the inspection taking place.
Also can you just wear shorts and a t shirt under the fire kit
