The Cape Elizabeth Land Trust and Noyes, Hall & Allen Insurance, are pleased to present the 3rd Annual Tri for Preservation Sprint Triathlon, Duathlon and Aquabike on Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 7:30am at Crescent Beach State Park in Cape Elizabeth.
The Tri for Preservation triathlon consists of a 500-yard ocean swim along the well-protected cove of Crescent Beach. (Wet suits are required). Participants then transition to a 14-mile, rolling bike course past the scenic farmlands and marshlands of Cape Elizabeth [View map here]. The course concludes with a well-marked 3.0-mile run along the shore of Crescent Beach (on a well-maintained fire road) towards Kettle Cove and back along Route 77. [View map here].
The Tri for Preservation Aquabike (swim-bike) is ideal for those who want to compete but do not run. The aquabike features the same swim and bike course as the triathlon. The aquabike concludes upon return to the transition area after the bike leg of the race.
The duathlon (run-bike-run) features a 1.5-mile out and back run on the hard-packed dirt fire road along Crescent Beach, a 14.5-mile bike and a 3.0-mile finishing run to the finish line.
Concerned that you might not want to do each leg of the race yourself? Then, form a team and compete with your friends and family! The Tri for Preservation has set aside a number of slots for triathlon teams this year, including a family relay competition.
Maine Senior Games Qualifier
The Tri for Preservation also plays host to the Maine Senior Games with the triathlon serving as a state-qualifying event for the national competition. Athletes aged 50 as of December 31, 2011 are welcome participants.
Following the race, the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust and the Cape Elizabeth Lions Club will host a beachside pancake breakfast for all our athletes. The breakfast, sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets, will be followed by an awards ceremony. Since your registration includes a day pass (one pass per registered athlete) to Crescent Beach, we encourage you to make a day of it and enjoy the beauty of Cape Elizabeth.
