About This Activity

TRI AROOSTOOK is a USAT sanctioned sprint distance triathlon for ages 16 and older.  Compete as an individual for the full sprint triathlon (swim, bike, and run) or as a team member on a relay of two or three.  TRI AROOSTOOK will be capped at 125 athletes.

TRI AROOSTOOK will be held on the University of Maine at Presque Isle campus.  Athletes will self seed when registering based on their estimated swim time for a 525 yard swim.  Swim waves of twelve athletes in six lanes will begin in the Gentile Hall pool.  This is followed by a 10.25 mile scenic bike that takes athletes south towards Aroostook State Park, then looping back to Presque Isle.  Finish this amazing event off with a 3.1 mile (5K) run through the fields and trails adjacent to the campus, which brings athletes to a roaring finish!
