EVENT INFORMATION

This is Cape Cod’s longest-running triathlon — and one of the oldest races in the world. There's hardly a triathlete in New England who hasn't been to picturesque Craigville Beach to start, or end, a season. Choose from Sprint-distance, Olympic-distance, Aquabike, Aquathlon or relay categories!

SPRINT DISTANCE COURSE DESCRIPTION

Swim: 1/4 mile

A sandy, waist-deep start at Craigville Beach (expect temps mid-70s). The course is rectangular in shape (approx 150 yards between the two turns). Wave conditions over the years have ranged from glass-calm to a moderate chop; never “big surf” in the protected waters of Nantucket Sound.

 

Bike: 10.2 miles

The “rolling hills” course is a shade over 10 miles: first entering the historic village of Centerville, then winding out to the villages of Osterville and Wianno before returning along a beachside road to Craigville Beach. Single loop; and no duplication of any stretch of road!

 

Run: 3.6 miles

The athletes head off toward Hyannisport, with a quarter-mile flat run evolving into a gradual climb for a quarter-mile, then a gentle rolling grade until the last mile which is a gentle downhill grade. A water stop is staffed by enthusiastic volunteers at the midpoint of the 3.6-mile run.

 

OLYMPIC DISTANCE COURSE DESCRIPTION

Swim: 0.9 mile

A sandy, waist-deep start at Craigville Beach (expect temps in the upper 60s or low 70s). Two loops extending beyond the Sprint course buoys in a rectangular shape. Athletes will make continuous loops (staying in the water) until the end of the swim.

  

Bike: approx 20 miles

The Olympic distance bicycle route will mirror the Sprint course with the exception of an additional loop starting in the village of Centerville and extending into Osterville. 

 

Run: approx 6.2 miles

The Olympic distance run route will mirror the Sprint course with the exception of an additional loop.

RELAY TEAMS

Yes! Your choice: 2-person or 3-person

USAT SANCTIONED

WATER CONDITIONS

Race director does reserve the right to substitute a beach run for the swim if water temperature is below 65 degrees, water quality tests indicate any health hazard, or if surf conditions are extremely rough.

VOLUNTEERS

Volunteers are welcomed. Family members of racers encouraged to volunteer while watching the action. Priority parking, free T-shirt, refreshments and goodie bag.

TRANSFER/REFUND POLICY

There will be no refunds or waitlist but private transfers will be allowed for a fee of $25 as long as both parties notify registration personnel by noon the Tuesday before race. 

NO DOGS!

We all love our pets. But town regulations forbid dogs on or near the beach this time of the year. Leave the pooch at home!
