Event details and schedule
SWIM: 1/3 mile
A sandy, waist-deep start at Surf Drive Beach (expect temps well into the 70s). The course is rectangular in shape and well lifeguarded. Wave conditions over the years have ranged from glass-calm to a slight chop; never “big surf” in the protected waters of Vineyard Sound.
BIKE: 8.25 miles
New this year - the bike course will go counter clockwise with a very limited time on Woods Hole Road. You'll stay Right onto Oyster Pond Rd, cross over Woods Hole Rd (traffic will be stopped) to Quissett Ave (a quiet road). Make a left onto School Street and then a right onto Church Street where you will have a gradual climb of 2 winding miles to Nobska Light. The remaining miles are either downhill or flat to the finish.
RUN: 3.1 miles
A very level and fast run on paved road and walking trail along Vineyard Sound. Consider a hat and sunglasses — not much shade! Two staffed water stops. The last 50 yards are on the sand of Surf Drive Beach where the biggest cheering crowd of the New England Triathlon Tour awaits you!
