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 2019 Falmouth Sprint Triathlon!
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: 9 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!
