BE ACTIVE. IN NATURE.
FOR THE COMMUNITY.
The Norway Triathlon is a United States Triathlon (USAT)-sanctioned sprint triathlon that combines swimming, bicycle riding, and running.
As we plan for this year’s triathlon, we will be following all CDC guidelines and will look to the USAT guidelines on safely returning to racing. Our current plan based on these recommendations, is to hold the event in person, but please be aware that we may move to virtual if racing in-person no longer falls within these safety guidelines.
Competitors begin with a 750-meter swim on a triangular course from Norway’s Pennesseewassee Park beach area near Route 118. Upon returning to the beach, swimmers will run to the transition area, mount their bikes for a 12.4 mile (20 km) ride up 118, taking a right turn on the Greenwood Road to a turnaround point beyond the Richardson Hollow Road. Once back at the transition area the final leg begins; a 3.1 mile (5 km) run through the paved roads of the Ashton neighborhood. The finish line is back in Pennesseewassee Park. Individual competitors undertake all three legs. Relay teams may be formed with 2 or 3 competitors. Racers of all abilities are encouraged to compete.
All proceeds of the Norway Triathlon will benefit Western Foothills Land Trust and will go towards maintenance and improvements of our trails and trailheads. Public access to trails has never been more important for our families and communities.
