Starting beachside at Quassy triathletes will swim out to buoy then they will turn clockwise to hit another buoy and then make their way back to shore. Join us on a journey through the breathtaking Connecticut countryside. Your triathlon bike ride begins by venturing out onto the scenic rolling hills of historic Middlebury. You will be faced with challenging climbs culminating in gorgeous hilltop views. Long winding descents will take you through pastoral vineyards and over Thomaston dam. This engaging triathlon bike ride will take you past Black Rock State Reservoir – a well known nesting site for Bald Eagles. You will be welcomed into some of Connecticut’s richest farmlands.
The Quassy course itself is challenging in spots but offers ample flat sections for proper recovery. Whether you are enjoying the scenic view of Lake Quassapaug or the rural beauty of Middlebury, Connecticut’s Historic District this run has something for everyone. The run course gives your family and loved ones plenty of opportunities to view you and cheer you on. Save some energy for the run as you will need it for this course.
Rev3 Quassy will take place over the course of two days. The OlympicREV triathlon will take place on Saturday June 3, 2017 and the HalfREV triathlon will take place on Sunday June 4, 2017. Athletes who would like to take on “The Revolution” (racing the Olympic AND the Half), will race on both Saturday and Sunday. The Quassy Kids Triathlon will start after the last athletes exit the water for the Half race on Sunday, June 4, 2017. This allows for the kids to have the same experience as the adults with an entirely closed course!
BACK FOR 2017! Athletes ages 7-15 can join in the fun! They will swim, bike and run in the Quassy Kids Triathlon! This will be a fun and safe event for your kids.
