Click to go to the web site for the New England Season Opener Sprint Du/Tri in Hopkinton, Massachusetts

The NE Season Opener at Hopkinton State Park is the best kickoff race to the season. Your choice: Duathlon or Triathlon! The State Park is a beautiful location with tree lined park roads and a picturesque reservoir. The course travels through historic Southborough, Ashland and Hopkinton. Whether you compete in the Du or the Tri, this is an early season race not to be missed!

Course Description
Swim Course
The swim takes place in the Hopkinton reservoir - clean, spacious, scenic and calm. Family and friends can watch too, given the ample room afforded by the transition area and swim start. The water will be cool, (65’) wetsuits are highly recommended. Check out some great deals for wetsuit purchase and rental on our sponsor page.

Duathlon Run Leg#1
The first leg of the Duathlon is a simple out and back run of 2 miles in length. You’ll begin at Max’s Arch when the gun goes off and run briefly across the beach for some added fun! This run leg is entirely within Hopkinton State Park on park roads.

Bike Course
The bike leg is an excellent course. It begins on park roads, with downhill turns and rolling terrain through Southborough and Ashland. You’ll experience one stimulating hill to make it even more exciting, as you cross the start of the famous Boston Marathon. You’ll finish with a fun downhill as you enter the park for the final run leg.

Run Course
The final part of both races finish with a 5-k run, 100% inside the scenic Park. Crowd cheers echoing off the reservoir will help you as you make your way to the 300-yd. flagged chute to the huge arched finish line.
