Now a Sun Multisport Events production with a sprint tri and du and a completely redesigned half distance tri all staged from beautiful Myles Standish State Forest in historic Plymouth, MA.

4/28/21 Update: Yesterday,  the Commonwealth of Massachusetts announced an easing of restrictions that included allowing road races and triathlons to return to MA as of May 10, 2021. This means the Pilgrimman Triathlon will return as a LIVE event in 2021!  New safety measures will be implemented to ensure the health and well-being of athletes, volunteers and staff and those measures will be posted to this page soon..

Since it’s beginning in 2014, the Pilgrimman Triathlon has offered multisport athletes a variety of race options at different distances all staged from scenic Myles Standish State Forest in Plymouth, MA and the year 2021 will be no different. Now owned and operated by Sun Multisport Events, the 2021 Pilgrimman Triathlon will be Saturday, September 18, 2021 and feature a sprint distance triathlon and duathlon… plus a completely redesigned half distance triathlon and aquabike (think two words: less loops).

The event will start at 7:30am with athletes in the half distance triathlon swimming first followed by athletes in the half distance aquabike. Athletes in the sprint distance triathlon swim will follow these athletes. The tentative start time of the duathlon is 8:00am.

Race Distances: The sprint triathlon consists of a 0.3 mile swim, 12.7 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. The duathlon features a 1.2 mile run, a 12.7 mile bike and a 3.1 mile run.

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

  • Open/Elite

  • 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, 2021!  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.

Timing: All triathletes will receive 6 timing splits: (1) the swim, (2) transition 1, (3) the bike, (4) transition 2, (5) the run and (6) overall. Duathletes will also receive 6 timing splits: (1) the first run, (2) transition 1, (3) the bike, (4) transition 2, (5) the second run and (6) 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.

Duathlon awards will be given to the 3 fastest men and 3 fastest women overall. If the duathlon field has more than 50 registrants additional awards categories will be added.

USA Triathlon Membership: This is a USAT sanctioned event and all participating athletes age 18 or older must have either a valid annual USAT membership OR a purchase a 1-day USAT license ($15). Athletes age 17 and under can purchase an annual license for $10 (there is no 1-day license fee opton 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). Centerline violations can be avoided by not crossing the yellow centerline of the road. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED. Chin strap must be buckled at ALL times you are on the bike even when in the transition area. Handlebars/aerobars must have bar-end plugs securely inserted into the bar. Taping over bar ends is not permitted. Lack of bar end plugs will result in disqualification.

Sprint Tri and Duathlon Course Info

NOTE: The Pilgrimman Sprint Tri  swim and bike course are unchanged from 2019. The run course has been slightly modified. See below for details.

The Sprint Tri Swim: The sprint swim is a 0.30 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 or 3 at a time, every 5-10 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.

Water Temperature and Wet Suits: The Pilgrimman Triathlon 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 College Pond water temperature has typlically been in the low 70s on race day.  A water temperature read will be taken and posted to our social media feeds on as the event draws closer.

The Duathlon Run (Leg 1): The first leg of the duathlon will be a 1.2 mile out and back run course along Lower College Pond Road. At about 0.3 miles into the run athletes will turn left onto Crawford Road then right onto West Crawford Road and run to where it meets back up with Lower College Pond Road. At this point, runners will complete a U-turn and run back from where they came along the same roads until they return to transition.

The Sprint Tri & Duathlon Bike: The bike course is 12.7 miles all along the tree-lined roads within Myles Standish State Forest. After leaving transition next to College Pond, cyclists will ride south along Upper College Pond Road towards Fearing Pond.  At about the 3.5 mile mark cyclists will turn left onto Fearing Pond Road to complete a 2.5 mile loop around the pond and then return to Upper College Pond Road where they will turn right and ride north back towards College Pond. Just past the 9 mile mile cyclists will turn right onto Alden Road, ride about 2 miles to a turnaround point and then complete a U-turn and ride back towards transition near College Pond. Click here to see a map of the Sprint Tri and Du bike course.

The Sprint Tri Run and Duathlon Run (Leg 2):  The 3.1 mile run is an out and back course that starts on Lower College Pond Road. At about 0.3 miles into the run athletes will turn left onto Crawford Road then right onto West Crawford Road and then left back onto Lower College Pond Road. Athletes will continue running south to a turnaround point at the intersection of Lower College Pond Road and 3 Cornered Pond Road (which is actually a trail). Athletes will then return back to transition along the same roads. Click here to see a map of the Sprint Tri and Du (leg 2) run course. There will be 1-2 run course aid stations offering water, Gatorade, ice and energy gels.

Half Triathlon and Aquabike Course Info

NOTE: The Pilgrimman Half Tri swim, bike and run courses have been completely redesigned from 2019. The key takeaway is this: Less loops. See below for details.

The Half Triathlon and Aquabike Swim Course: The 1.2 mile Half triathlon and aquabike swim will be a 0.6 mile counter clockwise loop to be completed twice (the 2019 edition was 4 loops). At the conclusion of the first loops athletes will exit the water, run a short stretch across the beach (and a spectator cheering section!) and then re-enter the water to begin the 2nd loop.

Swim Start Format: The start for the half swim will consist of 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. 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, 2-3 at a time, every 5-10 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.

Swim Waves: Swim waves will be announce 1-2 weeks before the event. The first wave will be triathletes in the Elite/Open wave and the final wave of the half will be aquabike athletes. The waves in between are still to be determined.

The Swim Cut-Off: The swim cut-off time is 9:00am. Any athletes that do not complete the swim by this time will not be allowed to move on to the next segment of the race.

Water Temperature and Wetsuits: Pilgrimman 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 College Pond water temperature is typically in the low 70s.  Water temp updates will be as race day draws closer.

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.

The Half Triathlon and Aquabike Bike: The 2019 bike course was 4 loops of a 12 mile course (48 miles). The 2021 Half bike course will be 54 miles and goes through Myles Standish State Forest and neighboring Carver, MA. The first 12.7 miles of the course are the same as the sprint tri course. At the 12.7 mile mark cyclists in the half will ride past transition along Lower College Pond Road and continue on to a sharp right onto Bare Hill Road.  Cyclists will ride 3-4 miles north, complete a turnaround and then return south along Bare Hill Road towards the Myles Standish ranger headquarters where they will turn right onto Cranberry Road. Cyclists then exit the confines of the park and complete a 15 mile loop in the town of Carver, MA that goes past numerous cranberry bogs and water features along some beautiful country roads. Half cyclists then return to Myles Standish State Forest to complete the 54 mile course.  Click here to see a map of the course and cue sheet with turn by turn directions. The bike course has an elevation gain of 2,308′ and you can see the course on Strava.

The Bike Cut-Off: The bike cut-off time is 12:45pm. Any athletes that do not complete the bike by this time will not be allowed to move on to the next segment of the race.

The Run Course: The 2019 run course was 4 loops of 4.3 course for 13.1 miles.  The 2020 Half run won’t be.

The 2021 Half run will be a 13.1 mile run course closed to traffic and all within the confines of Myles Standish State Forest. After exiting transition, athletes will run south along Lower College Pond Road with a short section on West Cranford Road to a right turn at about the 1.5 mile mark on Three Cornered Pond Road.  Athletes run for about 0.5 miles on Three Cornered Pond Road (which is not a paved road, but a hardpacked trail) until they reach Rocky Pond Path, a beautiful, paved bike path that cuts through the forest. Athletes complete a 4.5 mile out and back loop along Rocky Pond Path two times (@ 9 miles total) and then make their way to the finish along Three Cornered Pond Road and Lower College Pond Road.  Click here to see a map of the run course which also includes an elevation profile.

The Run Cut-Off: The run course cut-off is 3:30pm.  Any athletes that have not complete the run by this time may be removed from the course by Event Management.
