Sprint Triathlon

SWIM: 500 Meters
BIKE: 7-Miles
RUN: 3.5-Miles

While this is a great event for everyone, it is a particularly great race for first-time triathletes. It is a beautiful course that is most-welcoming with a calm bay swim then a mostly flat, scenic bike course and an equally scenic run. Held in the heart of Long Island’s wine region, this event has something for athletes and spectators alike.

Swim: An out-and-back along the shoreline of the Peconic Bay.

Bike: A fun-to-ride, one-loop bike course that is mostly flat with a few rolling hills.

Run: One loop with rolling hills and a water stop at the 1.5-mile mark.

Bikes allowed: Road bike, time trial, mountain bike or hybrid. Sorry, no tandem or recumbent bikes.

Note to racers and event spectators:

We will be collecting donations for Community Action Southold Town (CAST). CAST has been serving low-income individuals and families on the North Fork of Long Island since 1965).We invite you to bring non-perishable and personal care items for donation to CAST. Items will be collected at packet pick-up location(s) and on race day. All donations are appreciated!

Please have your bib# placed on

1-both shoulders, & both leg side calves (both left and right sides)
2-on the front of your bike helmet
3-on your bike front tube closest to the handle bars, for easy side viewing
4-and on the front of your chest or abdomen, not on your back!

Photos Click Here

RunSignUp has the ability to search for your photos by Bib# or Name. Try it, it’s easy.
The photos can also be found by going to your results page on RSU, and clicking on the small photo icon under your name. The bib# tagging is done automatically by google software and is not always perfect. It is being worked on by RSU, to make it better.
You can also manually add missing bib#’s yourself, so don’t hesitate to help when the software missed it!
