Falmouth Triathlon Race Description

 

Register Here!

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. (25 U.S. states represented last year!) Join a very festive -- yet competitive -- atmosphere at the 2023 Falmouth Sprint Triathlon!

The Falmouth Triathlon has been voted one of the top 5 races for beginners worldwide by the Triathletes Choice Awards, so “casual” athletes and newcomers know they are very welcome to join the tri-geeks. It’s a wonderful day for everyone!

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

SWIM: 1/3 mile

A sandy, waist-deep 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 to warm up the legs, you begin a gradual climb of 2 winding miles to Nobska Light. Then it’s a rolling four miles entering into the village of Woods Hole and then returning along a new, quieter route to Falmouth Village. The remaining two 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!

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.
