MIGHTYMAN MONTAUK (SPRINT)
TRIATHLON FESTIVAL RACE DETAILS
A BIG event! Our annual festival of races! One of the few metro area races that offers three triathlon distances to accommodate all race levels and interests.
SWIM: The swim is an out-and-back in Fort Pond. This is a fresh water pond and water temperature is typically in the mid-to-upper 60’s. Wetsuits are recommended but not mandatory.
BIKE: Bike is one loop that includes the region’s favorite challenging climb up to the Montauk Lighthouse.
RUN: A mix of rolling and flat, making everybody happy!
AQUABIKE: Racers complete the swimming and cycling portions of the race. After finishing the the bike course, just rack the bike and trot across the finish line for your finish time.
Bikes allowed: Road bike, time trial, mountain bike or hybrid. Sorry, no tandem or recumbent bikes.
Fort Pond, a freshwater pond has the potential to spawn blue algae. If our water testing indicates there is blue algae in Fort Pond, we have a back up plan in place with the swim at Navy Beach.

2-on the front of your bike helmet,
