Race Website:
This popular sprint-distance triathlon is an affordable, friendly, small-town event with a beautiful and challenging course in a rural setting. This is a grassroots race with a welcoming, casual atmosphere, making it a great one for beginners. Chip timing, tech shirts for all participants, custom awards, a tough course, and a solid field of competitors all add to its appeal to seasoned athletes, too.
Course Information:

The race starts with a quarter mile swim in the crystal clear and warm waters of Hobbs Pond. The 13-mile bike loop takes racers through the center of Hope village, into Camden, and back to Hope via the infamous Barnestown hill--a steep and long uphill stretch that rewards cyclists with a long smooth downhill through a scenic farm almost all the way to the finish. The 3.2-mile run is also challenging and beautiful, a loop on rural roads with a couple of steep hills. The transition area is perfect, flat and grassy, right next to the swim exit and the road.
