10 Reason To Do This Race

Here are 10 reasons why you should do the Cranberry Trifest:

  1. A New England favorite for 20+ years: Look around and you won’t find too many triathlons in the region that have been around for 20 years. Ask around and you’ll learn why. A great venue, a scenic course, superior organization, first-class production value… this and more is why Cranberry is a New England classic.
  2. Safety first: Your safety is our highest priority. To ensure the safety of athletes we utilize plenty of lifeguards and EMTs to support the swim, police details to help control traffic, lots of volunteers along the bike and run courses, signage that alerts motorists a race is in progress, emergency medical staff on site and more.
  3. A race for all ages and abilities: Athletes can race the sprint triathlon (swim-bike-run) or splash & dash (swim-run) or the olympic triathlon or aquabike (swim-bike).  Discounted pricing for athletes age 19 and under!
  4. Terrific value: The price of registration for all the adult races includes swag (swim cap, t-shirt, water bottle, finisher medal), post-race food and drink and complimentary photos. All athletes are also eligible to win giveaways and enjoy an award-winning race experience from Sun Multisport Events.  Check out our Discount Race Packages for athletes that race two or more of our events.
  5. A scenic course: The swim is in the calm waters of Loon Pond, the bike is on rural country roads that go by cranberry bogs, farms and water features and the run is through suburban neighborhoods with multiple aid stations.
  6. A convenient venue with something for everyone: Cranberry Trifest is based at the Ted Williams Camp (TWC) in Lakeville, MA. TWC is a large complex with tennis courts, basketball courts, a skate park, horseshoe pits and plenty of open space. There’s ample on-site parking just a short walk to packet pick-up, transition, the finish and all post-race festivities.
  7. A great race for teams: If you’re part of a team and competing in one of the triathlons tell us the name of your team when registering and we’ll rack you along side your teammates in transition.
  8. An experienced, award-winning event production team: The Cranberry Trifest is organized by Sun Multisport Events winner of the “Best Triathlon Series” in voting by athletes in the “Triathlete’s Choice Awards” and the same team behind other popular events including the award-winning Patriot Half, voted “Best Small Race” an unprecedented three times in the “Triathlete’s Choice Awards”… and by Competitor magazine!
  9. Generous volunteer support: Volunteers are key to a successful race and we’ll have 75+ on hand through the weekend to help you from registration right up to putting that finisher’s medal around your neck.
  10. Attention to the “little things”: We pride ourselves on paying attention to the little — and not so little — things that add up to to an award-winning race experience that has exceeded the expectations of thousands of athletes. A strong focus on safety, superior organization, friendly staff, generous volunteer support, personalized rack positions, gender-specific t-shirts, plenty of aid stations on the run, and a water bottle wrapped in a cold hand towel at the finish are just some of the things you can expect from a Sun Multisport Events production.

Sprint Tri and Splash and Dash - Overview

Event Date, Times and Location: The sprint distance triathlon and splash & dash will be Sunday, 8/21/22 (same day as the olympic distance race). All events take place at the Ted Williams Camp in Lakeville, MA located at 28 Precinct Street in Lakeville, MA. The event will start at 7:30am with swim waves featuring athletes in the olympic distance race. Swim waves for athletes in the sprint race will be started after all swim waves in the olympic race have entered the water.

Event Distances: The sprint distance triathlon consists of a 0.25 mile swim, a 21 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. The splash & dash is a 0.25 mile swim and 3.1 mile run. The swim and run course is the same for the triathlon and the splash & dash.

Sprint Tri Categories: Athletes in the triathlon may register for any of the following categories:

  • Open/Elite
  • Age Group
  • Athena (females, 165+ lbs)
  • Clydesdale (males, 220+ lbs)
  • Paratriathlete
  • Friends, Families & Beginners.
  • Relay team divisions (all male, all female or mixed gender).

Athletes who wish to compete to be the overall male or female winner should register for the Open/Elite category.

Age Group categories begin with 19 and under and then follow standard USA Triathlon age breaks in five year increments (e.g. 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, etc.). Your age group is determined by your age on December 31, 2022! MINIMUM AGE: 13 years old as of race day, but younger athletes will be accepted if they have experience training/racing the distances they plan to race and/or are interested in participating as a member of a relay team.

The Friends, Families & Beginners category is for athletes just getting started in triathlon or prefer to start the race in the same wave with a friend or family member.  Athletes that choose the Families, Friends & Beginners category when registering will be grouped together in the same wave so they can start the swim together. These athletes will receive all timing splits, but will not be eligible for any age group awards. Note that we are offering this category to give people an opportunity to start the race together and athletes in this category are welcomed to stay together throughout the event, but drafting on the bike is not allowed and is a USAT rules infraction.

Splash & Dash: The Splash & Dash is a 0.25 mile swim followed by a 3.1 mile run. All athletes in the Splash & Dash will be grouped together into the last wave and will be sent into the water in a time trial start format (as described below).

The Swim Start Format: Athletes will be sent into the water in waves. The first waves will consist of athletes in the Paratriathlete and Open/Elite divisions with all athletes starting at once. All other waves will follow a time trial start format with 2 athletes entering the water every 5 seconds. Athletes in sprint race categories will go AFTER athletes in the olympic distance races.

Water Temp  and Wetsuits: Cranberry is a USAT sanctioned event and per USAT rules wetsuits may be worn if the water temperature is 78F or less.  If the water temperature is between 78.1F and 83.9F participants may wear a wetsuit but will NOT be eligible for awards (they will still receive all timing splits).  USAT rules also mandate that if the water temperature is 84F or higher, no participants will be allowed to wear a wet suit. The Loon Pond water temperature has been in the upper 70s the last few years on race day.

Swim Caps: All participants will be given a swim cap that must be worn during the swim. The swim cap color corresponds to the wave each athlete is assigned to.

Timing: Triathletes will receive 6 timing splits: (1) the swim, (2) transition 1, (3) the bike, (4) transition 2, (5) the run and (6) overall. Splash & Dash athletes will receive 4 timing splits: (1) the swim, (2) transition 1, (3) the run and (4) overall.

Awards: Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female triathlon finishers in each Age Group as well as the Athena (females 165+ lbs) and Clydesdale (males 220+ lbs) divisions. All 3 members of the 1st place Mixed, Female and Male relay teams will also receive an award.

Awards in the Splash & Dash will be distributed to the top 3 male and females .

Post Race Food and Refreshments, Music and Giveaways: After the sprint and olympic distance races there will be a delicious catered meal (included in reg price for athletes in the olympic race; athletes in the sprint can purchase a meal ticket when registering) with vegetarian and gluten-free options. A DJ and live band will be on hand to keep the mood festive and racers will be eligible to win valuable giveaways from our sponsors.

Athletes age 17 and under who aren’t already a USAT annual member can purchase an annual license for $10 (there is no 1-day license fee option for athetes under the age of 17).

Three areas of common violations are (1) Drafting, (2) Blocking and (3) Centerline. To avoid drafting violations you must stay at least 3 bike lengths behind the competitor in front of you. When attempting to pass you must do so within 15 seconds. Blocking violations are assessed for failing to ride to the right (except when passing).

Sprint Tri and Splash and Dash - Course Info

 The Swim: The Cranberry sprint swim is a 0.25 mile counter-clockwise loop that will be marked by buoys and supported by lifeguards in kayaks and in the water.

The swim start format will be a combination of a traditional, “mass start” approach and a time trial start. Athletes in the Elite wave will approach the water through the swim corral, wade into the water and start the race following a traditional, mass start approach on “GO!”. Athletes in subsequent waves will start the race following a time trial format. These athletes will enter the swim corral and go into the water side-by-side, 2 at a time, every 5 seconds. There will be lanes leading from the swim corral to the timing mat to help organize this procession. An athlete’s time begins when he/she crosses the timing wire buried in the sand at the water’s edge. The last swim wave will consist of athletes in the Splash & Dash.

TransitionClick here for a map of TRANSITION.

The Bike: The 21 mile bike course winds it’s way through Lakeville, Middleboro, Rochester, Freetown and then back into Lakeville. This is a relatively flat course and will be supported with police details to help control traffic and volunteers and signage to accurately guide you along the course. The sprint course follows the first 8 miles of the olympic bike course until the intersection of Neck Road and North Road in Rochester where sprint cyclists go right while olympic cyclists continue to ride straight.  The sprint course re-merges with the olympic course about 1 mile later. The last 10 miles of the sprint and olympic course are the same. Click here for a map of the sprint (and olympic) bike course.

Technical Support: Tech support will be available starting at 5:30am the morning of the event for any last minute, minor technical adjustments (e.g. a rubbing brake, tire inflation). A tech support van will also patrol the bike course to identify and help resolve issues during the race (e.g. flat tire), but athletes are encouraged to be prepared to handle their own technical difficulties as their is no guarantee on course support will arrive just when you need assistance. At a minimum, pack a spare inner tube and a pump.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Athletes are reminded NOT to ride 3-4 across in the road during the bike segment of the race. Doing so blocks traffic and has been a source of resident complaints in the past. Please respect the rules of the road and the permission we are granted to utilize these roads for the race. Failure to comply with this request jeapordizes the future of the race. Officials will be on the course and if you are caught riding 3-4 across during the race you will be assessed a penalty or risk disqualification.

Volunteers

Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are the backbone of any good triathlon. If you aren’t racing this year’s Cranberry Trifest but still want to be a part of the action, help support the event as a volunteer. All volunteers get a free t-shirt, food and drinks and the satisfaction of contributing your support to the athletes that are giving it their all in a triathlon.  Click here to access the Cranberry Trifest volunteer registration page with a list of available volunteer jobs, a brief description of the roles and the time commitment.

Are you looking to raise money for your community group? If yes, we should talk. We partner with a variety of community groups who volunteer for our races as part of a fundraising effort. To learn more about volunteering at our events as an individual or as part of a community group fund raising effort please contact Mark Walter at info@SunMultisportEvents.com.
