Bassman Triathlon

May 21, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0

Ten years and running strong the Bassman Triathlon is THE race to start your season. For over a decade athletes have used the three distances to build their capacity on the same course, first dashing through the Sprint, then moving up to the International Distance, and then powering through the half distance event.

Race Swag: Goodie Bag includes but is not limited to commemorative Tech-shirt and swim cap, personalized bib. Finishers medal for all and Awards for top 3 male and female in each category. Awards medals for top 3 age group from 14-19 yrs to 75 & older in each category.

Sprint Distance: .35MS/12.8MB/3.1MB

International: .6MS/31MB/5.1MR

Half distance: 1.2MS/56MB/13.1MR

Bass River State Forest is located only an hour from Philadelphia and one hour and a half from the Verrazano Bridge in NYC. The swim is in the calm and clear waters of Absegami Lake with the start on a well maintained and clean beach area. It will probably be one of your most enjoyable swims. The water temperature has always been in the upper sixties for either the spring or the fall event. We strongly recommend you wear a wetsuit. The bike course is primarily right turns on country roads with wide shoulders. The mile run course is a fast flat run with lots of shade and on the roads and paths of the campground area of the Bass River State Park. You will enjoy every segment and finish to a crowd of spectators who can hang out around the picnic tables and playground near the transition area.
