Come to enjoy the beautiful outdoors in Simsbury, while participating in our annual triathlon (or “try-athlon”) on May 17, 2015 at 11:00am.
This adventure race, “Try Simsbury: River to Ridge Try-athlon,” starts with an ambitious 3.6 mile “River to Ridge” running/hiking segment, from the banks of Farmington River up some challenging new Simsbury Land Trust trails that enter Penwood Forest, gain about 400 feet in elevation, and provide lovely views from the ridge of the valley below. The next segment will be a 11.5 mile bicycling course, comprised of two loops on country roads and a short segment on the Farmington Valley Greenway. In lieu of swimming, the final component of the race is an approximately 1.6 mile loop on the Farmington River – paddling upstream first and then back, thereby crossing twice under Simsbury’s landmark Flower Bridge….a great place for spectators!
Registration: $75 for individuals, $90 for relay teams.
