About This Activity

The Colchester Triathlon has been a tradition for our small town for 31 years now.  The growing popularity of the event has been astounding, and we’ve continued to increase our maximum number of participants due to the high demand.  We take pride in offering a quality event that participants will find both physically challenging and mentally satisfying, encouraging people to strive for exceptional physical conditioning while attaining the courage necessary to finish the race with their best personal time.  As a municipal recreation department, we recognize that being an athlete is not just about winning, but about developing a routine, being committed to training, and establishing a healthy lifestyle.  Our mission is summarized as “Optimizing the Experience of Living,” and the Colchester Triathlon has become a vessel through which we encourage our participants to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  The Triathlon is also a community-lefted event, drawing excited spectators from within and around the Town of Colchester to spend a summer morning together as they bring positive energy to cheer and congratulate the participants in the race.  The energy generated by the town for this annual event is undeniably euphoric, becoming a recreational occasion that certainly enhances the experience of living and visiting Colchester.
