Wellfleet Sprint Triathlon


Still want to participate in Wellfleet even though the traditional race has been cancelled? Tri It Your Way is a fun alternative!

Tri It Your Way

Race the same distances as the traditional Wellfleet Sprint Triathlon but do so anywhere you like and with whomever you like (even your dog). The best part for many – you can choose an alternate to the swim leg!

May 24 - 31

Swim 1/4 mile               Bike 10 miles               Run 3.1 miles

Take a picture of yourself and your time doing each leg and post to the event social media or website. You will receive a finisher’s certificate,  race t-shirt and swag in the mail. In lieu of age group awards, participants will earn prizes for creativity, best dressed, etc.

It’s that easy!

1/4 mile Swim - 10 mile Bike - 5k Run

About the Course

The swim takes place in one of Wellfleet's many kettle ponds. Water is always calm and one of the first to warm up in the season. The bike course consists of two 5-mile loops through one of the most beautiful areas you will ride all year. The run is an out-and-back course that turns right near the famed, Beachcomber Restaurant where athletes will catch ocean views before turning at the half way point (when we say it's all down hill from here, we mean it!).

The Wellfleet Sprint Triathlon began in 2011 as the Lower Cape Sprint Triathlon and was established to raise money for Cape Cod's only nonprofit community radio station, WOMR. Dubbed "a great race in a most beautiful place," Wellfleet is one of Cape Cod's most picturesque towns. Part of the race course is located on a vista overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
