Liberty University has been selected to host the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Triathlon Regional Championships in October for the next three years. For the past two seasons, the USA Triathlon-sanctioned event, which concludes the fall race series, has been held in Ellicott City, Md.

Last fall, the Flames hosted the Liberty University Collegiate Triathlon, a USAT-sanctioned sprint event on campus. That race was run so smoothly that it attracted the attention of the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Triathlon Conference.
