The NEST Sprint Triathlon


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!  We are sad to hear that The All America City Sprint Triathlon has decided not to host a triathlon this year, but it has allowed us the opportunity to host a triathlon at one of our favorite locations!  Come on out 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! Don’t miss this new early season event!

250 yard pool swim   –  10.5 mile road bike  –  5K trail/road run


This is a great race!  Here are some other awesome choices!

Course Maps

    Bike Course: The bike course is a very simple course that takes you on three roads looping around the outside of the park.  We will have police officers and volunteers keeping you safe and directing you around the course.  If you have done our Northeast Duathlon before, it is the same bike course

    Run Course: Our run course will be a combination of road and trails.  The trails at Northeast are true trails, but are very well groomed.  About .75 miles of your race will be on trail.

    The swim will be at Northeast Parks outdoor pool.  They have agreed to get the park pool ready for the season early for us.  Each athlete will swim 50 yards (out and back) in each lane.  Swim order lineup with be posted Thursday, the week of the race. The pool temp will be updated regularly.  (current temp 64 degrees (4/22/2018)
