Ever thought Triathlons were, “For the Birds” and out of your reach? The NorthEast Sprint Triathlon or The N.E.S.T is a perfect way for you to fly into the sport of triathlon! Come on out to one of our favorite locations – Northeast Park – in February for the Duathlon, and come back at the end of April for the Triathlon. This race is a great first timer’s race, and a great tune-up event for your multisport season. Don’t worry about the early season cool weather, this event is in the afternoon, so it will have plenty of time to warm up!
