Sixth annual sprint distance triathlon organized by local athletes and families, who designed a race where you and your kids will be challenged! Are you a first timer or experienced triathlete? Our triathlon is limited to 200 racers, so its novice-friendly, but large enough to provide a competitive field of triathletes with a wide range of ages.
- First responders and volunteers are stationed throughout the course at each turn/junction. Our organizers work closely with town lifeguards, police, and fire/rescue personnel each year, we review the previous race in detail and incorporate comments from athletes to improve operating and safety protocols.
-Kids race is not chip-timed
