New for 2020… the Pilgrimman Triathlon gets added to the Sun Multisport Events line-up
December 11, 2019 – Boston, MA – Sun Multisport Events (SME) has announced that the Pilgrimman Triathlon has been added to it’s award-winning line up of multisport races. The 2020 Pilgrimman Triathlon will take place on Saturday, 9/19/20, in beautiful Myles Standish State Forest in historic Plymouth, MA (less than 45 miles south of Boston). This event will include a half distance triathlon and aquabike plus a sprint distance triathlon and duathlon.
The Pilgrimman Triathlon was started in 2014 and has been produced each year since by USAT Certified Race Director, Heather Cronin. The event is now owned and operated by Sun Multisport Events and Cronin — who’s been part of the SME Event Team for the last 2 years — will play a key role in transitioning this event to SME while remaining part of the SME Event Team for Pilgrimman and SME’s other 2020 multisport races.
“We’re excited to build on Heather’s success with Pilgrimman. It’s foundation is a terrific venue, a historic city, a scenic sprint tri and du and a great time of year for racing. Changes include a redesigned half tri and aquabike course and the addition of some of the subtle and not so subtle details athletes have come to expect from an SME production. We’re also working through additional ideas, including a gravel tri option, and enhancements that we believe will elevate the athlete experience even further.” says Mark Walter, USAT Certified Race Director, Owner and President of Sun Multisport Events.
Registration for the 2020 Pilgrimman Triathlon is now open and early bird pricing is in effect through 1/31/20 for all race categories. The cost of entry to the Half triathlon and aquabike has been attractively priced to help entice athlete to consider the redesigned 2020 half course ($199 for the half triathlon and $189 for the half aquabike). Sprint and Half triathlon relay team options are priced at just $30 above the individual price, plus there is youth pricing for the Sprint triathlon and duathlon. SME has also created a limited number of “Half Crazy” slots that give athletes entry to both the 2020 Pilgrimman Half and SME’s award-winning Patriot Half Tri (already sold out) at a savings of $50.
