Ever thought Triathlons were, “For the Birds” and out of your reach? The NorthEast Sprint Triathlon or The N.E.S.T is a perfect way for you to fly into the sport of triathlon!  We are sad to hear that The All America City Sprint Triathlon has decided not to host a triathlon this year, but it has allowed us the opportunity to host a triathlon at one of our favorite locations!  Come on out in February for the Duathlon, and come back at the end of April for the Triathlon.   This race is a great first timer’s race, and a great tune up event for your multisport season.  Don’t worry about the early season cool weather, this event is in the afternoon, so it will have plenty of time to warm up! Don’t miss this new early season event!
