_ The 2021 Hyannis 1 Triathlon:
Join experienced race veterans and triathlon newcomers alike for the 40th year of the Hyannis Triathlon – part of the New England Triathlon Tour.
This is the longest-running triathlon on the East Coast — and after all these years, the accolades still continue:
Named as one of the 20 Best Triathlons in the Nation by Men’s Health magazine (2016)
Named one of The Most Amazing Triathlons to Do in the USA Today by The Culture Trip (2017)
Voted one of the Top 5 Small Races Worldwide by the Triathlete’s Choice Awards (2018)
Both the Sprint and the Olympic races start and finish at picturesque, sandy Craigville Beach. It’s challenging — but still able to be completed by fitness enthusiasts who have trained for the distances. The atmosphere is special; the views are spectacular; and your satisfaction of accomplishment will last for a long time!
It is important to keep athletes, volunteers and staff safe! As guidelines shift for events of this type we will update this race's website page and post to Facebook.
SPRINT DISTANCE COURSE DESCRIPTION
Swim: 1/4 mile
A sandy, waist-deep start at Craigville Beach (expect temps mid-70s). The course is rectangular in shape (approx 150 yards between the two turns). Wave conditions over the years have ranged from glass-calm to a moderate chop; never “big surf” in the protected waters of Nantucket Sound.
Bike: 10.2 miles
The “rolling hills” course is a shade over 10 miles: first entering the historic village of Centerville, then winding out to the villages of Osterville and Wianno before returning along a beachside road to Craigville Beach. Single loop; and no duplication of any stretch of road!
Run: 3.6 miles
The athletes head off toward Hyannisport, with a quarter-mile flat run evolving into a gradual climb for a quarter-mile, then a gentle rolling grade until the last mile which is a gentle downhill grade. A water stop is staffed by enthusiastic volunteers at the midpoint of the 3.6-mile run.
OLYMPIC DISTANCE COURSE DESCRIPTION
Swim: 0.9 mile
A sandy, waist-deep start at Craigville Beach (expect temps in the upper 60s or low 70s). Two loops extending beyond the Sprint course buoys in a rectangular shape. Athletes will make continuous loops (staying in the water) until the end of the swim.
Bike: approx 24 miles
The Olympic distance bicycle route will mirror the Sprint course with the exception of an additional loop starting in the village of Centerville and extending into Osterville.
Run: approx 6.2 miles
The Olympic distance run route will mirror the Sprint course with the exception of an additional loop.
TRI IT YOUR WAY (VIRTUAL CATEGORY)
Can't make it in person? No Problem!
Here's how Tri It Your Way works:
1) Pick your triathlon activities! Remember, you can either swim the 400 yards or choose another activity to do for 10 minutes. The bike needs to be at least 10 miles and the run needs to be at least a 5K (yes, you may go over, but not under!).
2) SAFETY FIRST! Make sure you are taking all the safety precautions when swimming, biking, and running. This means not swimming alone and following all the rules of the road (or trail). Just like all the precautions you take when training or racing an event, we want you to be safe.
3) Record each activity with your watch, or phone, or bike computer.
4) Document your tri! Whether it’s someone taking pictures of you “racing” or stopping for a selfie mid-run. We want to see you in action! Dogs, kids, partners, friends (socially distanced, of course) are encouraged to join in with you!
5) Go to our event page and post your “race” data and your pictures. OR email your pics and race data to [email protected]
“Tri It Your Way” runs from June 12 - 19. Race any day within this time period.
Prizes will be awarded the week of June 20, based on the pictures and race data that is submitted. Prize categories range from “Best run with dog” to “Prettiest View” to “Best alternate swim activity.” We have lots of fun swag to give you!
Results will count toward national and regional rankings. All USAT rules and regulations will apply. Racers are subject to time penalties or disqualification for infractions of USAT rules.
Please note: You will need at least a 1-day USA Triathlon membership in order to race any sanctioned triathlon (including this one). Follow prompts through registration to choose a 1-day ($15) or Annual ($50) Membership.
