The New England Trifest: Hoping to return in 2017. See below for details.
October 2015 Update: Thanks for your interest in the New England Trifest produced by Sun Multisport Events. We brought the New England Trifest to Fairlee, VT in 2013 where it offered a challenging and beautiful course to athletes racing in the olympic and half distance triathlons plus a fun track for kids in the youth-focused offroad duathlon. The 2013 and 2014 races enjoyed great weather, some star appeal (World Champion and USAT Hall of Famer Karen Smyers won the 2013 race), generous support of sponsors (Darn Tough socks for all in 2014!) and help from hundreds of local volunteers.
We put the race on hold after the 2014 event due to road construction planned in 2015 on one of the main roads utlized for the bike course (Rte 113). While we explored other bike course options none offered a suitable alternative for various reasons. Unfortunately, the Rte 113 construction project was postponed in 2015 and pushed to 2016. We have been informed by a member of the Vermont Department of Transportation that they fully expect the Rte 113 road construction project to start in the summer of 2016 and finish in the fall of that same year.
As a result, we're taking another year off with this race and will consider returning in 2017.
