We are deeply committed to giving back to the communities that support our events – without them, none of what we do would be possible! Our community relations range from giving cash contributions to key charitable partners, to promoting/organizing non-profit events and causes, to working directly with successful programs. To date, we have helped raise over $4 million for great organizations through the events we work with. A strong consciousness of, and relationship with, the broader community is a critical piece of the Tri-Maine experience. Our current and past involvement has included:
- Camp Sunshine, Casco
- The Casco Bay YMCA, Portland and Freeport
- Bicycle Coalition of Maine
- Rippleffect, Portland
- Morrison Development Center, Portland
- The Jessie Fund & Maine Children’s Cancer Program, Portland
- Rangeley Lakes Trails Center, Rangeley
- Maine Cancer Foundation
- Cape Elizabeth Land Trust, Cape Elizabeth
- Scarborough 350th Celebration, Scarborough
- Main Street Bath, Bath
- Freeport HS Project Graduation, Freeport
- Poland Parks and Recreation, Poland
- Brunswick Parks and Recreation, Brunswick
- Bowdoin College Common Good Grant Fund
USAT is short for USA Triathlon, the national governing body for the sport. Every Tri-Maine participant must be either an annual member of USAT or purchase a one-day membership for each event. Annual memberships are purchased directly from USAT. One-day memberships are $12 and are included in the entry fee for the Non-USAT member category. Since you will have already purchased your one-day membership, you do not need to bring $10 to packet pickup. For more information about USAT and becoming an annual member, please visit theirwebsite.
If you register online, you will receive a confirmation from RunSignUp. There will be a list of participants on this website as well. Be sure to check the accuracy of your information on both the confirmation e-mail and on the list of entrants before the race. Contact us with any questions you have (see below).
Generally, you can make any changes yourself through RunSignUp, using the registration confirmation e-mail that you received or simply going back to our registration page and logging in. If you require specific assistance, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with what you need changed.
Yes you can. Wetsuits are available for rent at Gorham Bike and Ski.
Each race has a different pre-race packet pickup time and venue, but usually it is available the day before the race and on race morning. The bigger events may offer it two days before the race. Please check each race page for specific dates and times.
In general, the transition area opens up approximately 1.5 hours before the start of the race. Some events require additionally travel between multiple transition/start/finish areas, so you will need to budget your time accordingly. Be sure to read the race literature closely to know exactly what you need to do race morning. We try to provide a recommended timeline of when to be where, but each athlete is responsible for being set up in time for the start.
This is determined on a race-by-race basis, so you have to check the specific race information to find out what the policy is. In general, most swims do not require a wetsuit, however race management reserves the right to change this policy if conditions are variable. We HIGHLY recommend that you plan to have a wetsuit for each non-pool swim race you are doing.
It is very important that you use a swim-specific wetsuit when competing in a triathlon. Surfing, scuba, or multi-purpose suits are not designed for competitive swimming and will cause more harm than benefit. Contact your local tri shop for more information about swimming wetsuits.
I didn’t turn my chip in after the race. Where do I return it so I don’t get charged the “lost chip fee?”
