About This Activity

This is a beginner-friendly lake triathlon which has a 1/3 mile swim, 11.1 mile bike and a 3.4 mile run. The race takes place at College Pond in Myles Standish State Forest at the College Pond recreation area.

About The Swim - The swim leg is 1/3 of a mile with a safe in-water start on sand. The water depth is 8-10 ft, with diminishing shallows to the right hand side of swimmers making for a very safe arena in case a swimmer needs to get over to shallow water. Additionally, the swim leg traverses a trail-covered peninsula making it possible for spectators to go out and watch the entire swim event up close.

About The Bike: The bike leg is 11.1 miles of open road with very low traffic. You'll be riding an out and back course with a safe loop at each end. It's almost impossible to get lost. The terrain is friendly, with a gain of only 138ft. There are 5 miles of newly-paved, flat, fast stretches so you can get into a rhythm and make some great time.
