Race Day Timeline

We recommend that you drop off your bike at the Shattuck Park public beach on Dublin Rd. prior to check-in. Parking for the event is provided at the campground on Poole Rd and shuttles are available to get back to the beach before the start of the race. Remember to stick around after you finish to refuel and watch the award ceremonies.
Swim - 9 AM
The race begins with a 1/2 mile swim in Thorndike Pond. Immediately following your completion of the swim, transition into the biking segment right at the beach. Spectators for the swim can park at Gilson State Park located across the street from the beach. Wetsuits/swim caps are not required.
The bike event follows a 11.2 mile half paved, half gravel route around Thorndike Pond. See the map below for the detailed route or turn-by-turn directions. The bike event ends at the campground where there will be a water and fuel station to help you push through the hike.
Note: A mountain bike is recommended. Helmet is required.
The 5.3 mile hike starts at the campground and follows the remainder of the paved road up to the trail head. Athletes will climb 1800 ft of elevation along the White Dot trail to the summit of Mt Monadnock, descend the White Cross trail and finish back down the road to the campground. There will be at least 2 water stations along the hike route.
There is only one water station along the bike route so please plan accordingly. There will be at least 2 water stations along the hike route to the Monadnock summit and several more volunteer stations along the way if you need anything. You can recognize a volunteer by the race t-shirt and exclamatory shouts of encouragement.
Join us after the race for food, hydration, and ceremonies.
