About This Activity

This race features a beach start in soft sand. After running into the water, athletes will make their way through shallow water, so practice your dolphin dives. The swim will be a rectangular point to point swim, and athletes will have a quarter mile run from swim exit to transition.

The bike course starts out flat and fast before taking riders into a series of rolling hills, giving them the chance to experience the beauty of the surrounding Maine farmland and countryside. Tall pine trees provide shade over much of the course, which winds through Saco, Dayton, Lyman, Waterboro, Hollis, and Old Orchard Beach. Most of the climbing is completed by the midway point with a long low grade climb on Route 5 (miles 10-15) and some rollers on South Waterboro Road (miles 19-25). The back half of the course consists of some fast, flat, downhill sections that bring you back into Saco. After that it's a relatively flat and fast ride into T2. 

The run course is an out-and-back, giving athletes the chance to finish out the race on a flat and fast course that includes sweeping views of the Scarborough Marsh and over a portion of the storied Eastern Trail. Athletes will cross the finish line in downtown Old Orchard Beach to celebrate their accomplishments.
