Time: 9am
Location: Ballfield where Rte. 145 meets Rte. 4 in Strong (followed by the bike and run leaving from the FRC)
Cost:

Pre-Registration

  • Double Tri-fecta* – UMF Students: $50, $75
Day-Of Registration
  • Single Tri-fecta* – UMF Students: $40, Public: $55

* Single Tri-fecta is when one of the people in a 1- or 2-person craft is competing in all 3 events. Double Tri-fecta is when both people in a craft are competing in all 3 events. Entry fee for the double Tri-fecta covers both people for all 3 events.

Description: Ready for a full day of activity? The Tri-fecta combines all three races into a quasi-triathlon. Unlike a standard triathlon, the Tri-fecta races will be spaced out and distinct, so there will be no “transition” period at the races. Races are staggered to allow for Tri-fecta participants to be able to get from the end of one race to the start of the next in plenty of time.

The Tri-fecta starts with the Sandy River Canoe/Kayak race. This 10-mile race is flat water with some Class I and II whitewater. Finish at the Little League ballfield in Fairbanks on ME-4. Rental canoes and kayaks are available.

Tri-fecta participants will then compete in the Mainely Outdoors Two-Wheel Grind and FRC Beaver Dash 5k races detailed below.

* Single Tri-fecta is when one of the people in a 1- or 2-person craft is competing in all 3 events. Double Tri-fecta is when both people in a craft are competing in all 3 events. Entry fee for the double Tri-fecta covers both people for all 3 events.

Prizes: Awards will be given for the fastest male and female competitor. T-shirts will be given to all participants.
