Polar Bear Triathlon / Duathlon

Description: A multisport tradition in New England.
Course Info: Swim:
Pool swim 525 yards (21 lengths) with wave starts (approx 30 athletes per wave). You will be placed the approriate wave based on the estimated swim time that you give when registering (so it is very important that it is accurate!). If you did not give an accurate swim time, PLEASE go time yourself in a pool and e-mail a more appropriate time to [email protected] It is ESSENTIAL that you do this!! There is a 20 minute time limit to complete the swim portion of the race. If you do not complete the swim in 20 mins, you will be asked to get out of the pool. You will be allowed to finish the rest of the race, but your time will be considered unofficial and you will not be eligible for awards.
PLEASE NOTE: It is imperative that you provide an accurate swim time for 525 yards. If you give a false swim time that puts you in an inappropriate wave, we reserve the right to move you to a different wave at any point.

Bike:
11.5 mile loop course with rolling/flat terrain and ocean views on low traffic country roads. There are no aid stations, but there will be lead and sweep vehicles. You are responsible for your own water/support on the bike course. If you have mechanical issues on the bike, do not count on a mechanic coming to help you. You should have the tools and knowledge to handle a breakdown, if it were to happen. All athletes must be off the course by 11:45am. If you are not finished with the bike leg by that time, you will be picked up by a sweep vehicle and returned to the transition area. You will be allowed to finish the rest of the race, but your time will be considered unofficial and you will not be eligible for awards.

Run:
3 mile off and on road course. Wide trails and quiet neighborhood streets. There will be aid stations approximately every 1 mile. This year’s route will have one and a half laps of the trail. Please see course map link above for more detailed explanation.

Duathlon:
The first 2 mile run will be a shortened version of the second run, with only half a lap of the trail. The bike, second run, and transition will be the same as the triathlon. The Duathlon will begin at approximately 9 am.
