Join us in beautiful eastern Connecticut for a wonderful, community supported sprint triathlon. Moosup Pond is a lovely, small lake with clear, clean water and a wide sandy beach, great for entry and exit. The bike loop is a scenic ride through the rural countryside of Plainfield and Killingly with 4 moderate but short hills. The run course is an out-and-back route which takes you most of the way around the lake through this lovely waterfront community. Come on and “Give it a Tri!”
All packet pick up is done race morning. We open an hour and a half before the start of the event.
Emails will be sent usually Thursday prior to race with any specific details.
Come to race, but stay for the festivities. Your triathlon experience includes a DJ playing great music, yummy post race treats, and sponsor giveaways.
The 2018 DKH Give It A Tri will have an On-Site Bicycle Mechanic to help our athletes before the race with any cycling needs. They will also be out on the bike course to assist athletes with any problems during the race.
