The 2016 edition of the Hope Triathlon will take place on July 16th. All proceeds for this event help the YMCA offer our free LiveStrong at the YMCA program for cancer survivors. Mark your calendars now and start your training. This will be a great year. With chip timing, a great course and environment this is sure to be a fantastic event.
Parking: Parking will be in the parking lot of the Camden Snow Bowl right next to the race venue.
Race Day Check In: We will have the check-in for race day open at 6:30am for all you early birds. We will close check in at 7:45. Transition Area: Our transition area will open at 6:45am along with the Check in Area. We have some really cool bikes and other gear in the transition area. This is an area that we reserve for those of you racing so all your stuff will stay put. Please ask your awesome supporters to respect this area for you. Swim: Our swim is a 1/4 mile swim in the placid Hosmer Pond. This is a small pond with warm temps and calm waters. You will leave the beach and do a counterclockwise triangle swim around our two bouy markers. Will will ask that all swimmers wear a highly visible swim cap that we provide so we can see you in the water. We want you to be safe. Bike: Our bike is a 13+ mile ride through the back roads of beautiful Hope and Camden Maine. It will feature some fantastic climbs along the way as well as some nice fast stretches. Our roads are not closed to traffic so please think safety when your are riding and don't forget your helmet. These are mandatory to ride!! Run: The run course is a easy as we could make it. This out and back run course is mostly flat with only a small hill along the way. It features lots of shady trees along the way and you get to finish looking at the pond. We will have an awesome water stop along the way for you to hydrate and cool off!
Timing: We do chip timing because it's awesome and you get your results much quicker. Cost: $75/individual, $100/2 person team and $120/3 person team Awards: We will have awards after the event so hang around for that and some refueling.
Bike Support: As always SIDECOUNTRY SPORTS will be at the race ready to do any last minute adjustments to your bike. Thank Andrew and his crew when you see them.
