About This Activity

This is the perfect race for anyone starting to get into triathlon. Takes place on the famous historic Huguenot Street. The course is fast, flat and fun. It is a great way to kick off your season without having to get into the cold water.


There will also be a relay and kids fun race. The kids race is free and distances will be determined based on the age groups present. The relay teams will start the same time as the individual racers.


All profits from this race will go to benefit cystic fibrosis awareness and research. Bring a friend or three for this great cause.

PARKING

Please be aware that parking will be limited at the race site. Please come early and following the instructions below. There will be ample volunteers at all locations to direct you – please follow their instructions.

There is no parking on Huguenot Street and it will be closed to traffic by 8:00am.

1.) There are 2 small parking areas immediately beside the race start/transition area, off of Broadhead Avenue. These will likely fill up quickly. 

2.) When the above lots are full, participants will be directed to the Village Water Treatment municipal parking area located at the end of North Front St, off of Huguenot St. (This is a very short walk to the transition area and recommended as a way to avoid congestion at the other lots.)

3.) Additional parking has been approved for us to use at La Stazione Restaurant (behind the Gilded Otter Brewery) which has entrances off of Huguenot Street and Main Street.

4.) Please note that we were NOT given permission to park in the Gilded Otter lot this year and you may get towed if you try to park there. Please do not park there.

5.) Overflow parking will have to go to the Park & Ride on Route 32, ¼ mile north of Broadhead Avenue. This lot has direct access to the rail trail and an easy walk to the race start area and recommended for spectators arriving just prior to start.

Please see the Google Map and the "car" symbol for parking.http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=213274481196508403809.0004946327bb92b80fc7d

NUTRITION

The race has attracted a lot of families that have been effected with cystic fibrosis. This year we are staying more in tuned to guidelines set forth by the Cystic Fibrosis Foudnsation with individually wrapped food products and bottles of water. This limits the potential spread of infection. There will be Hammer products supplied on the course but no water jugs.
