Go from athlete to triathlete in 2018!  

Participation in our Spring Triathlon includes first time-triathletes, those who want to use the event as a season warm-up, those who are returning to racing following some planned or unplanned time off, and those
who just want to have fun! Our event is non-timed and non-competitive, making it an ideal first triathlon experience. If triathlon is on your bucket list, you've come to the right place.

Bike: 17.5 km (Map)
Run: 4 km (Map)

The pool swim will be done in waves, each lane having 5 people maximum.

Lanes/waves are organized by estimated swim times, so you can be sure you'll
be swimming with others of similar speed.

Our well-marked two-loop bike course will have all intersections controlled by certified
professionals and volunteers.

The run leaves Commonwealth Place, progresses through two short roads, then onto the
beautiful trails of Elk Lake, following a well-marked out-and- back course.
