    Olympic Distance Triathlon:

    Swim 1.5K (.93 miles):

    Bike 40K (24.86 Miles):

    Run 10K (6.2 miles):

  • Leave Winslow park and run through the quaint village of South Freeport before returning.
  • The course features closed roads and A strong downhill finish!
  • There will be aid stations with water, PowerAde, Hammergel, pretzels, and other products at approximately every mile.

    Aquabike
  • A great option for athletes who only want to swim and bike, the Aquabike course is the same as the Triathlon, minus the run! Aquabike athletes will start in one of the waves and race alongside triathletes until the end of the bike.
  • As triathletes dismount to the left, Aquabike athletes will continue riding to the right, following the road until the finish chute.
  • At this point, they will dismount their bikes, hang them on the bike racks, and run or walk across the actual finish line. Helmets and shoes are allowed in the finish chute! Aquabike athletes will be given a finisher medal and provided access to all the post-race areas.

  • Other Info:

    Race Morning: The gates to Winslow Park will open at 5:00 a.m. We encourage athletes to arrive early. All athletes must be in the park by 7:15 a.m., otherwise, they will not be guaranteed parking.There is no longer an entry fee to get into the Park (see below). The Staples Point Road will be closing at 7:15 a.m. so please arrive before that time. The 2013 Lobsterman will begin at 8:15 a.m.

    The Transition Area will open at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday morning.

    DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS, WE RECOMMEND THE FOLLOWING:

    CARPOOL AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Meet your friends at the Park and Ride on Route 1 and take one car down to the park. This will alleviate a lot of potential stress and will get you excited for the race.

    Athletes who need to leave early or who don’t want to arrive early should plan to park at the Park and Ride on Route 1 (Near Exit 17) or at another public lot in Freeport (click here for map) and ride their bikes into the venue. It is approximately 3 miles from the Park and Ride to Winslow Park (north on Rt 1, right onto South Freeport Rd., Right onto Staples Point Rd).

    Spectators are encouraged to either walk or ride bikes down to Winslow Park from South Freeport Road. It is approximately 1.5 miles down Staples Point Road.

    Staples Point Road Closure: Staples Point Road will be closed to traffic starting at 7:15 a.m. on race morning. It will reopen when the majority of the athletes are done with the race, at the discretion of the police. During this time, NO CARS will be allowed to leave Winslow Park. This is for the safety of the athletes and volunteers still on course. Please plan accordingly.

    NO Winslow Park Entry Fee: We have negotiated with the park to allow for free entry for all athletes, spectators, and volunteers! This will alleviate the traffic issues that we have experienced at the gatehouse in the past and hopefully smooth the pre-race experience for everyone. When you arrive on race morning, please follow the instructions of the parking staff and In return, the Lobsterman will be making a contribution to Winslow Park on behalf of the race.

    Dogs at Winslow Park: Dogs are allowed in the park, but there have been issues in the past with owners leaving their dogs in hot cars or tied up in the sun without water for hours. If you are bringing a dog, please plan accordingly and have someone to take care of your pet. Failure to do so will compromise our ability to have dogs in the park at future races.

    Lobsterbake: Join your fellow triathletes at a delicious Maine lobsterbake, hosted by Gritty McDuff’s of Freeport! Fresh lobster, steamers, corn-on-the-cob, baked potato, etc. plus Gritty’s own microbrew (must be 21 to drink). Tickets are not included in your entry fee, however, you can purchase tickets for the lobsterbake when you sign up for the race.

    Beer is available for anyone of age to enjoy. You are not required to have a lobsterbake ticket.
