The New England Trifest is taking 2015 off but will be back in 2016. See below for details.
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. The SME team also enjoyed extended time in this beautiful area staying in cottages along Lake Fairlee pre-and post-race... you could say it represented a "workation" for many of us.
Unfortunately, we have decided to put the race on hold for 2015 due to planned construction on one of the main roads utlized for the bike course (Rte 113). While we explored alternative bike course options none offered a suitable alternative for various reasons. As a result, we're taking the year off and will look to return in 2016 with a bike course just as challenging as the previous races, only better thanks to improved road conditions.
If you registered for the 2014 New England Trifest and were granted a deferral to the 2015 race contact Mark at info@SunMultisportEvents.com and we'll work something out.
Thanks again for your interest and we look forward to seeing you in 2016.
