JUNE 29, 2013

TRI AROOSTOOK is a USAT sanctioned sprint distance triathlon for ages 15 and up being held on June 29th, 2013.  Compete as an individual for the full sprint triathlon (swim, bike, and run) or as a team member on a relay of two or three.  TRI AROOSTOOK will be capped at 125 athletes.


TRI AROOSTOOK will be held on the University of Maine at Presque Isle

 campus on Saturday, June 29th, 2013.  Athletes will self seed when registering based on their estimated time for the 525 yard swim.  Swim waves of 12 athletes in 6 lanes will begin in the Gentile Indoor Pool.  A scenic 10.25 mile bike takes athletes south towards Aroostook State Park, then looping back into Presque Isle.  A 3.1 mile off road run through the fields and trails adjacent to UMPI will bring athletes to a roaring finish of TRI AROOSTOOK.


Can’t swim?  Not a biker?  Forget running?  Consider being a member of a relay team for TRI AROOSTOOK!   A relay team consists of three members (swimmer, biker, and runner) who each complete one segment of the full Sprint Triathlon.  Relay teams can also have two members where one member completes two segments of the race.  Need help finding relay team members?   Simply post to the TRI AROOSTOOK Facebook page and we'll help!
