The challenging, highly rewarding Litchfield Hills Triathlon allows athletes to enjoy the scenic beauty of New Hartford, CT and the surrounding area in this Olympic distance event.
Start with a 1500m swim in the crystal clear waters of famous West Hill Lake, among the cleanest fresh water lakes in Connecticut, followed by a 40K bike course with stunning mountain vistas and finish with a 10K run on rural back roads.
Paratriathletes and relay teams welcomed.
