The Race Course
The GPS measured swim takes place in placid Long Pond and is a .50 mile triangular course. There will be five swim waves with each swim wave going off every three minutes. Athletes are assigned to swim waves based on their race category (age group, relay division, athena, clydesdale). Swim angels are available for athletes who would like an experienced triathlete to accompany them on the swim.
The bike is a single loop through the Littleton with some hills in the park area that are sure to raise your heart rate a beat or two.
The run is one of the most interesting run routes of any sprint triathlon with an off road section that keeps you focused and gives you great material for your post race stories. The run finishes along the beach with cheering spectators fueling the athletes along the final stretch. Then it's under the giant F.I.R.M. finish arch and on to the post race festivities.
