Kid’s Race, Sprint Triathlon, Olympic Triathlon, Olympic Relay Triathlon, 5K Run/Walk

The Megunticook Race Festival builds on the history of the original Tinman and Maine Sport Triathlon, one of the longest-standing races in the U.S. 2018 marks the 39th year of the Triathlon. It is organized by a group of dedicated and passionate local volunteers and supported through local business sponsorship. All profits this year are going to One Community Many Voices. This race will be a great, family friendly event.  We are aiming to put on a great race with chip timing, but will be keeping costs low in order to maximize funds going to our local community.  So that means volunteer race directors and limited race swag. 


Olympic – Individual or Relay Teams

 Sprint – Individual Only

5K Run/Walk

Note: All distances are approximate, based on Map My Run.  The course has NOT been officially measured.
