Triathlon and 5K Race Returns to the Wildwoods


The 8th Annual Tri/Run the Wildwoods will take place on Saturday, August 20 along the beautiful beaches and streets of North Wildwood starting at 7 a.m.

The Triathlon will feature a ¼ mile swim, a 10-mile bike race and a 3.1 mile beach run. The event will also include a 5K, or 3.1 mile, beach run, strictly for runners, set to begin after the final wave of the triathlon has begun. The swim course and run course will begin at 15th Avenue and the beach; the bike course will begin at 13th Avenue and JFK Boulevard.

Tri/Run the Wildwoods, a USA Triathlon Sanctioned event, first took place in the Wildwoods in August 2004 and has grown to attract over 500 runners a year from throughout the Northeast as well as athletes from as far as Colorado, California, Ireland, Iceland and Canada.

New for the event this year, organizers will award medals to all athletes who complete the triathlon. Also new, music will play throughout the course featuring the participating athlete’s favorite songs – which they selected during registration.

The registration fee for the triathlon is $85 per person, and registration for the 5K Run is $35.
