Description

Just minutes from I-95 this mid-season Sprint/Olympic race is fast, flat and easy to get to.  Staged out of beautiful Lums Pond State Park in Bear, Delaware this is a great race for elite and novice athletes alike. The freshwater swim starts with a rectangular course that parallels the shore for the first 250 meters. The bike course is super fast and completes a large loop around the park.  This course is completely flat, all right hand turns and has great pavement throughout.  The run course is amazing with a beautiful, heavily forested mix of single track lake views and wide open graveled walking paths.  There are mountain biking, hiking and running trails galore as well as the GoApe ropes course.  Or you can relax with friends post race at Stewarts Brewing Company on the way home.

***The Lum’s Pond Sprint & Olympic Triathlons are the USA Triathlon Delaware State Championships.
Qualifying for the Toyota Age Group National Championships. State championships will qualify the top 35% or top five (5) finishers in an age group (whichever is greater). You may only qualify for Olympic-distance Nationals by placing in the Olympic distance State Championship race or Sprint Nationals by placing in the sprint distance State Championship race.
High School State Championships Exemption: All high school athletes who finish any of the State High School Championships will automatically qualify for Sprint-distance (pending they are at least age 15 as of December 31, 2023)
Any state championship that occurs after June 1, 2023 will qualify for BOTH 2023 AND 2024 Toyota Age Group Nationals. The qualification criteria for 2023 Age Group Nationals are subject to change from what it is for 2022. Click here to review the full 2023 qualification criteria for Toyota Age Group Nationals.
Athletes do not have to be a resident of a state to win that state’s championship. Any age group athlete competing in an age group division is eligible to win any state championship.

Swim Start

Time Trial Swim Start: Kinetic Multisports races utilize a time trial swim start. We'll start two (2) athletes at a time every few seconds. Athletes line up based on swim and overall finish times, faster up front, slower in the back to create a smoother race for everyone.

Elite Box Start: In conjunction with our time trial swim starts we are excited to announce the official addition of the Elite Box Start at select races. If you are in contention to get Top 20 Overall Male/Female or just want to race up front, this is for you. Simply work your way to the front of the swim start area on race day. We'll get you lined up and started first, then athletes two at time every few seconds thereafter. The Elite Box Start concept worked well at many races last year and we are excited to add this feature to more races.
