[ARCHIVED] Lake George - 5th annual Somerset Sports and Fitness Sprint Triathlon

Sanctioned event

The Lake George/SSF Sprint  Triathlon is a very unique point to point Sprint Triathlon with 1/4 mile  swim, 14.5 mile bike ride and 3.8 mile out and back run.  The entire  community's involvement is what will make this a fun one to come back to  and do year after year.  Great T-Shirts, unique medals, prizes and a  great post party afterward.  Open to 15 years and older, this race can  be done individually or as a team.  

This  will be a rare point to point race. The race begins at Lake George  Regional Park on the Skowhegan/Canann line in Maine.  The 1/4 mile swim  begins at the East Shore and participants will swim around the island  where spectators and fans will be able to see the entire swim!  The bike  transition is at the West Shore.  The bike ride is a 14.5 mile flat  country road with a few rolling hills and very wide "break down" lanes  to travel in to Somerset Sports and Fitness in Skowhegan.  The run is an  out and back 3.8 mile run that travels down along the beautiful River  Walk, ending with a challenging couple of hills to finish.  The race is  being officially timed and will have Police Escorts, EMS Services and  plenty of volunteers all along the route.
