Course Info: The Rough Patch is a triathlon that defines the word rugged. Join other rugged athletes for the inaugural off-road triathlon racing over roots, rocks and swimming in Green Fall Pond. This event highlights the rough and rugged terrain of the Pachaug State Forest. The area provides the best possible race day adventure experience, in a fun, friendly, family-focused environment. The race is in stark contrast to standard triathlon experiences and will challenge athletes with uneven terrain, dirt, rocks, and tree limbs. This area was chosen as the event site for its unique topographical characteristics, undeveloped natural beauty, and the challenge for on- and off-trail routes. With that said it is of great importance that we leave no trace, it is very important to us as race directors that all who participate in this race know that whatever you bring in must leave with you.rnrn*Please note there is a Junior Division, the Junior race begins at 7:30am.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
