The Pirate Tri is a fun, adult triathlon that takes place at Point Sebago Resort each June. It derives its name and theme from "Pirate's Weekend" at the Resort, and features Pirate sounds, sights, costumes, even a pirate ship! With a beach, playground, and snack bar at the venue, the Pirate Tri is a great event for the whole family.
Point Sebago Resort is offering lodging deals for registered athletes. Choose to stay in a Park Home or pitch a tent right at the venue. One and two-night deals available.

Point Sebago Resort
8:30 a.m. Start Time
1/3 mile triangular course in beautiful Sebago Lake. Average water temperature is in the mid 60s at that time of the year. There will even be a pirate ship on the course!
14 mile lollipop course with varied terrain, including two climbs, on low traffic country roads. Enjoy views of Mount Washington and Sebago Lake. There are no aid stations, but there will be lead and sweep vehicles. All athletes must be off the course by 10:45 a.m. If you are not finished with the bike leg by that time, you will be picked up by a sweep vehicle and returned to the transition area. You will be allowed to finish the rest of the race, but your time will be considered unofficial and you will not be eligible for awards.
3 mile course through the resort, slightly uphill on the way out and downhill on the way back. There will be aid stations approximately every 1 mile.
There will be one Transition Area, located in Lot C, adjacent to the beach. The transition area will open at 6:00 a.m. on race morning and will be closed approximately 15 minutes before the start of the first wave. Only volunteers, staff, and registered athletes are allowed into the Transition Area at any time. You must be bodymarked before entering Transition (relays included), and have a safe, approved helmet and will have their bikes inspected for USAT compliance. Once you complete the race, you will not be allowed back into the Transition Area until all of the cyclists are back, or the bike time cutoff is reached.
The Pirate Tri finishes along the waterfront, between the lake and the lagoon. It is a short walk from the transition area and provides spectacular views of Sebago. There is a large tent set up for the post-race festivities, which will take place regardless of the weather.
Relay members are required to hand off the timing chip after each leg of the race. The handoff takes place at their designated bike rack spot only. The cyclist cannot remove the bike from the rack before being tagged by the swimmer. The cyclist cannot tag the runner before re-racking the bike. The overall time for a relay will be the aggregate of times for each of the members.
Professional chip timing will be provided by All Sports Events. Every athlete and relay team will receive a timing chip to be worn around the ankle. Participants will receive times for swim, bike, run, T1, T2, and finish.
Top 3: Male/Female overall,
Top 3 in each age category (Male and Female every 5 years and U-19)
Top Coed, All-Male, and All-Female Relays
Please note that age (and age group) is based on Dec. 31st of this year, NOT what your age is on race day.
Entry Fee Includes:
Your place at the start line; a great technical t-shirt; chip-timing; well-marked and scenic course; on-course support; post-race refreshments; sponsor schwag, finisher award (pirate theme!); high quality, safe and fun experience.
