The 2013 Whaling City Triathlon is a production of Sun Multisport Events the same team behind such New England favorites as the Patriot Half and Cranberry Trifest. The Whaling City Triathlon is a terrific race for beginner and seasoned triathletes alike. The triathlon features a 0.25 mile swim in Buzzards Bay, a 12-mile flat, fast and scenic bike course closed to traffic (2 loops of a 6-mile loop) and a 3.1 mile run that is all on sidewalks offering gorgeous water views and a fantastic finish in historic Fort Taber Park. With multiple opportunties to see athletes throughout the event, this is one of the most spectator-friendly triathlons in New England!
