2013 New England Trifest:

The inaugural New England Trifest comes to Fairlee, VT the weekend of June 29-30, 2013 and will feature a duathlon for youths age 7-14 on Saturday, June 29th (race start: 4:00pm) and half and olympic distance races on Sunday, June 30th (race start: 7:00am). Brought to you by the same event management team that produces the Patriot Half and Cranberry Trifest, the New England Trifest promises you safe and superbly organized events that will offer a challenging test of your endurance.

Fairlee, VT holds a special place in the history of triathlon in New England where it was home to a popular olympic distance triathlon in the 1990s and early 2000s at Lake Morey. A new venue and some freshly paved roads made bringing triathlon back to the area a reality and in 2013 the New England Trifest will debut at Lake Fairlee on the grounds of Camp Horizons.

In addition to three great races, the New England Trifest will offer spectator-friendly attractions including food, entertainment and an expo featuring numerous vendors including companies focused on the needs of multisport athletes as well as local businesses offering a variety of products "made in Vermont".

HALF COURSE INFO

The Swim: Athletes in the New England Trifest half will complete a 1.2 mile swim in pristine Lake Fairlee which is situated on the shores of Camp Horizons. Athletes in the half will be start the race at 7:00am and will be sent in waves. The swim will be marked with large orange buoys for easy sighting and supported by a team of lifeguards and emergency medical personnel. After completing the swim athletes will exit the water and run along a grassy path, go under a bridge that runs under Route 244 and proceed onto transition.

The Bike: The bike course is a 28 mile loop that will be completed twice for a total of 56 miles. The bike course will wind through Fairlee, Norwich, Thetford (including Thetford State Forest and a climb of Thetford Hill) and West Fairlee. Keep your eyes peeled and you may also see the famed "Vermontasaurus"! The course will be marked with signage and staffed with volunteers, police and traffic control personnel to get you safely around the course. There will also be one water bottle exchange on the loop for athletes to re-fuel with a bottle of water or an electrolyte drink.

Not an easy course due to the hills. Be prepared for a big one on the bike loop - 2 if you're doing the half. The run is uphill out and downhill back.
