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 F.I.R.M., the largest race production company in the Northeast.

Saturday, July 14 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Town Beach. Don't miss the Saturday evening dinner by the beach with live music, yummy food and the Appleman himself--its almost as much fun as the race. Sunday, July 15 from 6:15 AM to 7:45 AM at the race venue, Littleton Town Beach

The Race Course

The GPS measured swim takes place in placid Long Pond and is a .50 mile triangular course.


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.

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.
