This Triathlon is a wonderful, late season sprint triathlon that attracts experienced competitors as well as people who are new to the sport. It is held in a quiet, Central Massachusetts town that is convenient to Boston, Rhode Island, and parts of Connecticut. Race categories include elite/open, age group, relay teams, athena & clydesdale, aquathon (swim/run), and aquabike (swim/bike).


Race Venue and Course Description

The race venue is in beautiful Douglas State Forest--a bucolic setting for the race, and an ideal location for a post event cookout as there are plenty of barbecues and picnic tables available for use, hiking trails, and a beach for more post event fun.



The race begins with a 1/4 mile swim in Wallum Lake, a very large and picturesque lake with placid waters. The single loop, 11 mile bike route on rural roads offers varied terrain, and a few good climbs. It's a challenging but scenic bike course. The majority of the run is inside Douglas State Forest.


The pretty setting, enthusiastic volunteers, and friendly environment make this an especially enjoyable event for participants and spectators.
