Falmouth Triathlon Race Description

Registration is now open!

It’s a rite of summer on Cape Cod: an event that attracts not only local triathletes but also visitors from across the nation and the world. (28 U.S. states, 7 nations represented last year!) Join a very festive -- yet competitive -- atmosphere at the 2024 Falmouth Sprint Triathlon!

COURSE DESCRIPTION

SWIM: 1/3 mile

A modified time trial start at Surf Drive Beach (expect temps well into the 70s). The course is rectangular in shape, following the shoreline, and well life-guarded. Wave conditions over the years have ranged from glass-calm to a slight chop; never “big surf” in the protected waters of Vineyard Sound.

BIKE: 8.5 miles

After a mile-long flat stretch along the edge of Nantucket Sound to warm up the legs, you begin a gradual climb to the headquarters of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.  You will ride through the campus of WHOI, one of the world's most acclaimed scientific research centers, before rejoining Surf Drive and heading toward the village of Woods Hole.  A highlight of your ride will be a climb to a coastal bluff where you will circle past the spectacular Nobska Light. The remaining three miles are either downhill or flat to the finish.

RUN: 3.1 miles

A very level and fast run on paved road and walking trail along Vineyard Sound. Consider a hat and sunglasses — not much shade! Two staffed water stops. The last 50 yards are on the sand of Surf Drive Beach where the biggest cheering crowd of the New England Triathlon Tour awaits you!

USAT SANCTIONED EVENT

You are required to have either a one-day USA Triathlon membership or an annual USA Triathlon membership in order to race in any USAT-sanctioned event. Please follow prompts through registration and in your confirmation email to choose a one-day ($15) or Annual ($50) Membership.

Results will count toward national and regional rankings. All USAT rules and regulations will apply. Racers are subject to time penalties or disqualification for infractions of USAT rules.

PACKET PICK-UP AND LATE REGISTRATION

Packet pick-up and late registration (if not sold out) will be Saturday evening from 5:00 - 7:00pm at the Mullen-Hall School, 130 Katharine Lee Bates Rd (NOT AT THE RACE SITE), or 5:30 - 6:30am race morning at race site.

All participants: BRING ID. If you have a USAT annual membership, BRING USAT ID CARD. 

You will NOT be able to pick up packets for others!

WATER CONDITIONS
Race director does reserve the right to substitute a beach run for the swim if water quality tests indicate any health hazard or if surf conditions are extremely rough.
TRANSFER/REFUND POLICY
Transfers: Private transfers will be allowed for a $25.00 fee as long as both parties notify registration personnel by noon the Wednesday before the race. There will be no refunds unless you purchase Refund Protect during the registration process. There will not be a wait list.
TRAVEL

For those traveling from afar, Cape Cod is awash with hotels, motor lodges, inns, bed and breakfasts, vacation cottages and AirBnB offerings. 

AWARDS

Awards ceremony is tentatively scheduled for 9:30am day of race. Awards presented to top three competitors in each age group (both male and female) as well as top Elites, Clydesdale/Athena, First-Timers, Male, Female and Mixed Relay Teams, and Aquabike. Those who cannot remain for the ceremony may pickup their award at the Awards table or by contacting us for shipping instructions. Results will be posted on our website within 24 hours of event.

RELAY TEAMS
Yes — your choice: 2-person or 3-person team! The captain should register, then go to 'manage team' to customize the name of the team and then invite who they want on their team.  
CRITICAL PARKING INFORMATION
There will be NO parking at race site OR on Falmouth’s Main Street. Primary parking sites will be the Mullen Hall School, Lawrence School and Falmouth Marine Park (all less than one mile from venue). All competitors will receive an athlete’s guide prior to the event with essential parking information. Additionally, police and staff will be posted at all entrances to the race venue, blocking access by vehicles and directing you to approved parking lots. Cooperation by all is critical to the continued approval of this event by the town.
NO DOGS!
We all love our pets. But town regulations forbid dogs on or near the beach this time of the year. Please leave your pooch at home!
TRI IT YOUR WAY (VIRTUAL CATEGORY)

Can't make it in person? No Problem!

Here's how Tri It Your Way works:

1) Pick your triathlon activities! Remember, you can either swim the 400 yards or choose another activity to do for 10 minutes. The bike needs to be at least 10 miles and the run needs to be at least a 5K (yes, you may go over, but not under!).

2) SAFETY FIRST! Make sure you are taking all the safety precautions when swimming, biking, and running. This means not swimming alone and following all the rules of the road (or trail). Just like all the precautions you take when training or racing an event, we want you to be safe.

3) Record each activity with your watch, or phone, or bike computer.

4) Document your tri! Whether it’s someone taking pictures of you “racing” or stopping for a selfie mid-run. We want to see you in action! Dogs, kids, partners, friends (socially distanced, of course) are encouraged to join in with you!

5) Go to our Facebook page and post your “race” data and your pictures. OR email your pics and race data to info@neeevents.com.

“Tri It Your Way” runs from July 5 - 21. Race any day within this time period.

VOLUNTEERS

We love our volunteers!  Friends and family members of athletes are encouraged to volunteer while watching the action. Priority parking, T-shirt, refreshments and swag bag are only some of the perks!  Register online or email info@neeevents.com for more information.

TIMING

Chip timed.  Race results will be live on NEEevents.com within a day.  A results link will be posted on this website as well as our Facebook page.
