A favorite of first timers and experienced triathletes, Colt State Park is beautiful! You will be biking and running in the park alone with no cars!
Colt State Park is often referred to as the 'Gem' of the Rhode Island State Park System.
The entire western border of the park is an open panorama onto Narragansett Bay. Open year round,
the park offers four miles of bicycle trails passing along the Bay and through 464 acres of groomed fruit trees,
carefully nurtured flowering bushes, and manicured lawns. Rich in history, it proudly displays ten large playing fields,
a historical museum, six picnic groves containing 400+ picnic tables, and its popular open air Chapel-By-The-Sea and you will see it all as you bike the park 3 times!
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.
