About the 20th Annual FirmMan Rhode Island

Offering a $10,000 prize purse and set in the lovely resort community of Narragansett, Rhode Island, this half ironman distance triathlon is a long time favorite for many athletes and their families. Come to race...scenic courses, enthusiastic volunteers, lot of spectators...but stay a few extra days to enjoy the gorgeous beaches, wonderful restaurants, and local attractions of this tourist playground. 

FirmMan Rhode Island is managed by F.I.R.M., the largest triathlon production company in the Northeast. 

Course Information:

The Race Course

Swim

The race begins with a 1.2 mile swim in Narragansett Bay. The spectator-friendly swim course is J shaped with the beach start adjacent to last house on the north end of the beach. Typically, the current follows the swimmers towards the seawall allowing for fast swimming conditions for most of the course. Surfriders, Narragansett lifeguards, surfers and kayakers are in the water to provide support.

Water temperatures range from 65-70F and wetsuits are highly recommended.  Wetsuits may be rented from Vmps. Email info@mpstraining.com for rental info. 

Bike

The Firmman bike is a 56 mile ride that combines riding on scenic rolling countryside roads and hammering the fast sections on Route 1. Winds tend to be from the south each year so a tailwind is present most of the time on the return leg of the course.

Run

The Firmman run course offers 13.1 miles of beautiful Narragansett scenery with enthusiastic volunteers to support the runners along the way. An aid station is located every mile with water, HEED, and gels. The final mile consists of a beach run with hundreds of spectators enjoying their day at the beach while cheering the finishers during the final part of the race.
