The fourth annual Westborough Sprint Triathlon will be held Sunday, August 18, 2013. This event is a partnership between Sun Multisport Events and the Westborough Rotary Club and will be based at Westborough State Hospital on Hospital Road off of Lyman Street in Westborough, MA.
This year's Westborough Sprint Triathlon will offer athletes three multisport divisions to choose from. Returning for the 4th year is the "road" triathlon that begins with a 0.25 mile swim in Lake Chauncy. After the swim athletes will ride their bikes over a 14 mile loop that travels the roads of Westborough, Northborough, Marlborough and Southborough. The event finishes with a 3 mile run that includes scenic off road trails in the woods surrounding Lake Chauncy and a spectator-friendly finish on the lush grass of the Lake Chauncy athletic fields.
NEW for 2013: OFFROAD Triathlon
The Offroad triathlon will utilize the same 0.25 mile swim and 3 mile run course as the "road" triathlon but feature a 5-6 mile offroad bike course covering some of the awesome trails surrounding Lake Chauncy
NEW for 2013: Splash 'n Dash
The Splash 'n Dash division is for athletes who just want swim and run. Athlete's in the Splash 'n Dash will swim the same 0.25 mile course as athletes in the triathlon and then run the same 3 mile run course.
