Ted Williams Camp
August 22 – 23, 2015
A terrific weekend of racing including a sprint distance triathlon, a kids' duathlon and an olympic distance triathlon (and aquabike!). The olympic has been selected as the 2015 USAT Northeast Regional Club Championship.
A "must do" on the New England triathlon calendar and now in it's 14th year, Cranberry Trifest promises you safe and scenic races and a festive atmosphere with a DJ, live music, valuable giveaways, post-race food and refreshments after each race and a venue that lets you sit back with friends and family as the 2015 multisport season nears a close.
New for 2015 we've added a Splash & Dash division to Sprint on Saturday.
Registration is closed
In addition to a safe and fun race experience, your entry fee includes:
- Race t-shirt
- Water bottle
- Finisher medal
- Bagels, bananas and other food items after the sprint; a catered meal after the olympic
- A chance to win awesome prizes from our sponsors including Rudy Project, Fuel Belt, Muscle Milk, Landry's Bicycles and others.
Race the sprint and olympic and compete for the title of King or Queen of Cranberry Trifest. The King and Queen is determined based on the fastest times of the male and female athletes that compete in both races.
New for 2015 is the Sun Multisport Triple Dog Dare which consists of 3 races at 3 different distances... the Patriot Half (6/20/15), Cranberry Trifest Olympic (8/23/15) and the Sun Multisport sprint tri of your choice. You'll save $50 on the package price of registration, receive an additional swag bag and receive a commemorative award for your achievement.

In January 2014 SME was awarded "Best Triathlon Series" in athlete voting as part of the "Triathlete's Choice" Awards program. Other SME events include the TRI-MANIA Summit and Expo, Patriot Half, Whaling City Triathlon and Westborough Sprint Triathlon.

The 0.5 mile olympic swim will be in Loon Pond and we expect the water temperatures to allow this to be a wet suit legal race, but there are no guarantees. Elite and Collegiate athletes will be sent in the first 1-2 waves with a traditional all-at-once start. Athletes in subsequent waves will start under a time trial format with three athletes sent into the water every 10 seconds (or 2 athletes every 5 seconds). Relay teams and Friends, Families & Beginners usually comprise the final wave.
The 14.2 mile bike course winds through Lakeville, Taunton, Berkley and East Freetown. The course is generally flat with rolling hills along some scenic country roads. The bike course is not closed to traffic.
The 3.1 mile bike course is all within Lakeville. The course is generally flat until approximately the 1.75 mile mark where you will encounter a steady climb until mile 2. The reward? A nice downhill on the other side. There will be aid stations at the mile 1 and mile markers with water and electrolyte drink.
The 0.9 mile olympic swim will be around the perimter of Loon Pond and we expect water temperatures to allow this to be a wet suit legal race, but there are no guarantees. Elite and Collegiate athletes will be sent in the first 1-2 waves with a traditional all-at-once start. Athletes in subsequent waves will start under a time trial format with three athletes sent into the water every 10 seconds (or 2 athletes every 5 seconds). Aquabike and Relay teams are typically the last wave.
The 26.2 mile bike course consists of rolling hills along a scenic course that takes you by cranberry bogs, water features and country roads. There will be one water bottle exchange on the bike course just past Mile 16 offering water and electrolyte drink.
The one loop 6.2 mile run includes some rolling through local neighborhoods with aid stations staffed by enthusiastic volunteers at every mile. Aid stations will include water, electrolyte drink and energy gels.
Racers will run a 1k course on the grounds of the Ted Williams Camp and then transition to their trail capable bikes (fat tires, no road bikes) and ride a 0.8 mile course. After returning to transition, they will run the 1k course again to finish under the same arch used by the adults. The run and bike course are fully contained on the grounds of the Ted Williams Camp.
