Hyannis Sprint 2 Triathlon
Join experienced race veterans and triathlon newcomers alike for the 37th Hyannis Sprint Triathlons – part of the New England Triathlon Tour.
This is Cape Cod’s longest-running triathlon — and one of the oldest races in the world. Recently named as one of the 20 best triathlons in the nation by Men’s Health magazine, both the Hyannis 1 and Hyannis 2 races start and finish at picturesque Craigville Beach. They’re challenging — but still able to be completed by fitness enthusiasts who have trained for the distances. The atmosphere is special; the views are spectacular; and your satisfaction of accomplishment will last for a long time!
SWIM: 1/4 mile
A sandy, waist-deep start at Craigville Beach (expect temps in the upper 60s for Hyannis1; mid-70s for Hyannis2. The course is rectangular in shape (approx 150 yards between the two turns). Wave conditions over the years have ranged from glass-calm to a moderate chop; never “big surf” in the protected waters of Nantucket Sound.
BIKE: 10.2 miles
The “rolling hills” course is a shade over 10 miles: first entering the historic village of Centerville, then winding out to the villages of Osterville and Wianno before returning along a beachside road to Craigville Beach. Single loop; and no duplication of any stretch of road!
RUN: 3.6 miles
The athletes head off toward Hyannisport, with a quarter-mile flat run evolving into a gradual climb for a quarter-mile, then a gentle rolling grade until the last mile which is a gentle downhill grade. A water stop is staffed by enthusiastic volunteers at the midpoint of the 3.6-mile run.
