TriRock Philadelphia, formerly the Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon, is recognized as one of the premier triathlon festival weekends in the country.
The 10th Annual event features three days of activities including a MultiSport Expo and Sprint Distance Race.
It culminates with the showcase Olympic Distance Race featuring some of the best elite triathletes in the country.
Fairmount Park hosts this scenic, challenging course and fun, family atmosphere; these are just a few reasons the race was named a top-five triathlon in the United States by Outside Magazine and lauded as one of the top big city triathlons by Inside Triathlon Magazine.
Sprint Triathlon: .8K Swim / 25.3K Bike / 5K Run
The Sprint course will take place almost entirely on the Martin Luther King Drive section of Fairmount Park. SWIM:
The .8K swim will be a point-to-point course that will finish at the transition area.
The current in the River is negligible this time of year.
The finish will be an exit right into the belly of the transition area.
After exiting the transition area, athletes will start the two loop bike course all in Fairmount Park.
Each loop will contain some fast, flat sections on Martin Luther King Drive as well as some modest technical and hilly portions on both sides of the river.
The 5K run will be an out and back on Martin Luther King Drive with a photo finish just a short distance from the transition area.
