The third annual Bold Coast Sea & Sky Sprint Triathlon will take place in the quaint DownEast town of Machias. The 12K kayak or canoe leg of the race will take you up and around one of the area's beautiful bridges and then down to the Bad Little Falls. In the next leg of the race, you will bike a 20K loop. This scenic route will take you along the sea coast and through the fishing village of Machiasport. The last leg will be a 5K run on the Sunrise Trail, which is part of America's spectacular Rail-To-Trails. The trail is flat, wide and has breath-taking views. We will not be limiting the time on the race. Therefore this is a great race for beginners. However, if you want competition we have that too.
The race is an opportunity for athletes, their supporters and cheerers to experience beautiful DownEast scenery, the world’s biggest tides and if they are lucky bald eagles. Then join the fun of the family-friendly Bold Coast Sea & Sky Festival, which include: Kite Flying, Boat Races, Airport Fly-In, Fly a Drone, Huge Kid's Area, Live Music and much more.
Come for the Race, the Festival, the beautiful vistas and the welcoming DownEast hospitality.
