Max has added a 6th race to the series, after careful planning and consideration with the great community of Wareham and Onset Village. Located just "Off Cape" this Triathlon boasts scenic views of the water, without the hassle of Cape traffic and bridges. With the transition area located at Onset Pier, overlooking Onset Bay, the race setting is picturesque and an ideal location for Triathlon.

Looking for a new venue by a proven RD - this inaugural race should not be missed!

Some highlights include:

* Secluded bay point-to-point swim - no buoy turns because we walk on the beach to the in-water start and swim 1-way back towards the transition area.
* Creative finisher medals - knowing they’re waiting for you gives you a little extra push.
* Picturesque Onset Bay - the transition area, spectator viewing and post-race festivities are all located together at Onset Pier. Easy access for everyone and steps from town.
* Post-race feast - free to all participants and a nominal fee to guests. Celebrate your accomplishment with some good food, friends and music.
* Giveaways galore - the race has been embraced by lots of local businesses, so they’re showing appreciation with great freebies (random race #s selected).
* Location: Cape Cod without the Bridges - we referred to Onset as a diamond in the rough since it’s beautiful, quaint and full of great shops.. Oh yeah, it’s just off the highway, so no traffic hassles too.
* Saturday race - gives you a nice recovery - family day on Sunday without the race on your mind. Come for the weekend and enjoy local restaurants, shops and inns. Wareham and Onset are ready to host Triathletes.
* Vendor tents - hand-picked vendors that triathletes always relate to.

Course Description
Swim Course This 1/3 Mile bay swim is protected deep in Onset Bay, so on the windiest days, it’s calm in Onset. The swim course is a point-to-point style, set in shallow waters along the coast. We’ll walk together from the transition area to the swim start at Shell Point. From there, it’s a straight shot back to Onset Pier and under Max’s huge finish arch! Plenty of buoys and boat support will help guide you along the way.

Bike Course
The Bike leg is an out and back course on fast and flat terrain that travels through the heart of Onset Village and Shell Point. During the 10 Mile Bike, you’ll pass cranberry bogs and highlight Onset Bay!

Run Course
Your final leg winds through panoramic views of the East River in local neighborhoods with flat terrain throughout. The 3.1 Mile course concludes near the bandstand with Max’s huge Finish Arch to welcome you! The post race festivities begin from here!
