Event Information
This is one of Cape Cod’s longest-running triathlons — and one of the oldest races in the world. Along with Hyannis 1, it was recently named as one of the 20 best triathlons in the nation by Men’s Health magazine, Hyannis 2 starts and finishes at picturesque Craigville Beach.
High School State Championships

America’s governing body for the sport of triathlon, USA Triathlon, has named September’s Hyannis Sprint Triathlon as the Massachusetts High School Championships.

Students enrolled in a Massachusetts high school or preparatory school, grades 9-12, on the race date of Sept. 9 are eligible to compete for the honor of top three male and female scholastic triathletes in the Commonwealth. High school students from other states are also welcome to compete, and while the USAT title is reserved for students from Massachusetts schools others will be eligible for the age group awards (15 and under, 16-17 and 18-19).

Course Description
SWIM: 1/4 mile

A sandy, waist-deep start at Craigville Beach (expect temps in the upper 60s for Hyannis1; mid-70s for Hyannis2. 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.
