Sebago Lake Triathlon - Tri-Maine

TriME Return to Racing Plan

THERE WILL BE STRICT GUIDELINES IN PLACE. REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE MULTIPLE EMAILS WITH IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS.

THE SEBAGO LAKE TRIATHLON FESTIVAL IS ON!

The 2020 Sebago Lake Triathlon Festival will be a Sprint Duathlon only.

To allow for the state approved socially distanced event, the start will take place over a longer window, with a large transition.  Participants will be assigned a specific time to enter transition, and must leave transition at the end of their window, without exception  Starts will be in a time trial format, with participants only allowed to start at specific times.

To eliminate crossovers and allow us the opportunity to race we are only able to offer a sprint duathlon taken place in the same amount of time we normally host the Olympic event.  We are working with local officials and St. Joseph’s College to produce a safe race for everyone and should have final approvals soon.
