This is a half-ironman, 70.3 mile (1.2 swim, 56 bike and 13.1 run) distance, an alternative for those of us who love the training and the challenge of half-ironmans without the crowds, expenditures, commercialization, and requirements associated with traditional 70.free events. This is a strictly Do It Yourself endeavor, with no registration, fees, or firm commitment required. Relays are an option. If you are interested, please contact me and I would be happy to help with any questions you have about this event.

1.2 mile swim, out and back, in Comet Pond
56 mile bike on hilly roads of Rutland, Barre, Petersham, and New Salem. The first 13 of the bike is the run course, then out and back 44 or so miles on 62West and 122North until junction of Route 202 then turn around.
13.1 run out and back from comet pond. There are no aid stations, unless we get volunteers :), so you will need to carry your fluids/foods with you on bike and run courses or stash along route in advance.
If you are interested, contact me and I will send you details.
