Description

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.

Olympic Triathlon & AquaBike

Swim Course: The swim is a 1500m course in the clean, clear waters of West Hill Lake, which has one of the highest water ratings in the state. Bring your shoes because there is a 1/4 mile uphill run to the bike transition!

Participants in the Aqua Bike competition will complete the event after the bike. Finish times are recorded as participants racks their bikes and make it to the Finish Line.  There are no relay team entries for the AquaBike.

Bike Course: Bike a beautiful loop course along back roads and wide shouldered main roads with a screaming downhill at the start and a rather painful uphill at the end. In between, the course rolls without any major up or downhills. The course measures 24.8 miles.
