About the 19th Annual Yomechas Olympic and Sprint Triathlon

This Olympic distance event offers a wonderful course for first timers and experienced triathletes as well. The swim is in a quiet pond. The bike and run courses are flat and fast (or flat and slow if you just want to savor every moment of the race). And the volunteers are fun and enthusiastic. Plus the race is managed by F.I.R.M., the largest race production company in the Northeast.
