Sprint Triathlon in the scenic beauty of Eastern Maine, features the pristine waters of Brewer Lake, the rolling hills of Orrington Maine, and a race experience you'll never forget as extremely well organized. We encourage families and individuals of all fitness levels and competitive experiences to participate in this fun event! For the safety of our youth, we are allowing those ages 14 and up to participate.
Race Date: Sunday, July 20th 2014 Race Time: 8:00am Race Start Location: Orrington, ME at the Brewer Lake Boat Launch
The Bangor YMCA Open Swim Course will be an in-water start with our triathletes divided into large heats. The venue at Brewer Lake will feature clearly marked buoys, multiple lifeguards in watercraft, and the clear, exciting water a lake swim brings! Athletes will swim 750 meters (0.47 miles) before exiting and running across the street to a professionally run transition zone for their bike ride!
The challenging bike course is 12.4 miles which consists of rolling hills on a beautiful out and back course through Orrington.
The run course is a 3.1 mile run which goes out and back along the shores of Brewer Lake.
Athletes leave the lake from the boat launch and run across the street to transition. The transition area will open at 6:00am on the morning of the race and will close about 15 minutes before the start of the race.
The bike racks will have your race number. Place your bike on the side of the rack that your number is located.
During the race, only volunteers and race management are allowed in Transition. Only athletes who have started the race may enter, while those who have completed the race may only return to Transition when the last athlete has started the run portion.
