Sea to Summit Race Description


Maine to the top of Mt. Washington...
The Sea to Summit is not your traditional triathlon. This is an amazing day: combining the elements of a long-distance triathlon with the challenges of an adventure race. This largely self-supported event consists of a 1.5-mile ocean swim, a 92-96-mile bike ride (depending on course variations) and a strenuous 5.5 mile run/climb up the tallest mountain in the Northeast U.S. The 2023 race starts at 5:15 am, Saturday July 22 on the sandy shores of Kennebunkport in Maine and ends atop Mt. Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. You'll be ready for that post-race turkey dinner.Event details and schedule



We must place qualification restrictions to be sure all athletes finish safely during daylight. Required is the completion of either:

   -  a 140.6 (“Ironman”) triathlon in 13:49 or less 

  -  or a 70.3 distance triathlon in 6:19 or less

These qualifying events must have been completed after Jan. 1, 2018.  For long triathlons of slightly different distances, calculate your finishing time against these standards. Prior S2S athletes who have finished within the time restriction are pre-qualified.

Additionally for new S2S racers: your swim time in any USAT or Ironman sanctioned event after January, 2018 must have been 1:29 or less for a 140.6, :44 or less for a 70.3, or :34 or less for a (properly measured at 0.9 miles) Olympic. This does not need to be the same race that you used for your general qualification.

The race directors may allow entries for athletes who have completed other recent races of similar difficulty if they are convinced the athlete likely has excellent swim proficiency as well as the ability to reach the checkpoints before the cut-off times (see below). Athletes must be 18 years of age or older.



Each competitor must designate a support person (porter) who is in good health and will be present throughout the race including; at the race start, drive the course (although not behind or alongside the athlete) to the base of Mt. Washington, take away his/her racer’s bike at T2, meet the athlete at the top of the mountain (accessible by toll road) and chauffeur the athlete away from the post-race party. Each competitor and support person must attend a mandatory pre-race meeting at the start of race week (date and time TBA).  Additional questions can be addressed at packet pick-up at Kennebunkport’s Colony Hotel on Friday, July 21 from 3 to 5 pm.  There is no race day pick-up.  The porter will, like the racer, receive a race shirt, bike bottle and entry to the post-race party and dinner. Relay teams need no other person as designated porter, as non-active team member(s) can assume that role.
