The Wellfleet Sprint Triathlon is picturesque, challenging -- and fun! A 1/4-mile swim in the clear waters of a Cape Cod "kettle pond"; a 10-mile bike through the rolling hills of the Cape Cod National Seashore; and a 3-mile run past the famed Beachcomber restuarant. The paved bike/run course, traversing a natural pine forest, will be closed to vehicular traffic. The race benefits non-profit radio station WOMR 92.1FM and Outer Cape Health. This is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event with a USAT certified Race Director.

The swim takes place in one of Wellfleet's many kettle ponds. Water is always calm and one of the first to warm up in the season.
The bike course consists of two 5-mile loops through one of the most beautiful areas you will ride all year.
The run is an out-and-back course that turns right near the famed, Beachcomber Restaurant where athletes will catch ocean views before turning at the half way point (when we say its all down hill from here, we mean it!).
