It?s a rite of summer on Cape Cod: an event that attracts not only local triathletes but also visitors from across the nation and the world. (28 U.S. states, 7 nations represented last year!) Join a very festive -- yet competitive -- atmosphere at the 2023 Falmouth Sprint Triathlon!
The Falmouth Triathlon has been voted one of the top 5 races for beginners worldwide by the Triathletes Choice Awards, so casual athletes and newcomers know they are very welcome to join the tri-geeks. It is a wonderful day for everyone!
SWIM: 1/3 mile
A sandy, waist-deep start at Surf Drive Beach (expect temps well into the 70s). The course is rectangular in shape, following the shoreline, and well life-guarded. Wave conditions over the years have ranged from glass-calm to a slight chop; never big surf in the protected waters of Vineyard Sound.
BIKE: 9 miles
After a mile-long flat stretch to warm up the legs, you begin a gradual climb of 2 winding miles to Nobska Light. Then it is a rolling four miles entering into the village of Woods Hole and then returning along a new, quieter route to Falmouth Village. The remaining two miles are either downhill or flat to the finish.
RUN: 3.1 miles
A very level and fast run on paved road and walking trail along Vineyard Sound. Consider a hat and sunglasses, not much shade! Two staffed water stops. The last 50 yards are on the sand of Surf Drive Beach where the biggest cheering crowd of the New England Triathlon Tour awaits you!

TRI IT YOUR WAY (VIRTUAL CATEGORY)
Can't make it in person? No Problem!
Here's how Tri It Your Way works:
1) Pick your triathlon activities! Remember, you can either swim the 400 yards or choose another activity to do for 10 minutes. The bike needs to be at least 10 miles and the run needs to be at least a 5K (yes, you may go over, but not under!).
2) SAFETY FIRST! Make sure you are taking all the safety precautions when swimming, biking, and running. This means not swimming alone and following all the rules of the road (or trail). Just like all the precautions you take when training or racing an event, we want you to be safe.
3) Record each activity with your watch, or phone, or bike computer.
4) Document your tri! Whether it is someone taking pictures of you racing or stopping for a selfie mid-run. We want to see you in action! Dogs, kids, partners, friends (socially distanced, of course) are encouraged to join in with you!
5) Go to our event page and post your race data and your pictures. OR email your pics and race data to email@example.com.
Tri It Your Way runs from July 9 -31. Race any day within this time period.
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."
