About the 16th annual appleman triathlon


The beach front transition area, challenging and scenic race courses, and crowds of spectators have made this race a New England favorite for many years. Plus, the AppleMan Triathlon is managed by Fiske Independent Race Management, the largest and most experienced race production company in the Northeast.

The Race course

Swim

The GPS measured .5 Mile triangular swim course takes place in placid Long Pond.

Bike

The Nashoba Road construction has been completed, so we’re back to the original AppleMan one loop bike course with some beautifully paved roads for you to enjoy.

Run
The run is one of the most interesting run routes of any sprint triathlon with an off road section that keeps you focused and gives you great material for your post race stories. The run finishes along the beach with cheering spectators fueling the athletes along the final stretch. Then it's under the giant F.I.R.M. finish arch and on to the post race festivities.
