The Marshalton Triathlon is Chester County’s premier community and sporting event that has flourished for forty years and counting. First run in 1973, it is considered one of the longest continually running triathlons in the country. With it’s first running primarily recreational for the patrons of the Marshalton Inn, the race has become an annual tradition for families and friends from all portions of Chester County.

The race begins and ends in the village of Marshallton, and participants race over ten miles of beautiful Chester County. The race includes bicycling, canoeing and fast walking. The Marshalton Triathlon has grown from sixty competitors, in that first year, to include as many as 2200 participants and a thousand or more spectators. A unique feature of our race is that it is open to beginners; with a shorter race course than most traditional triathlons, allowing the 8-16 year old age group participants to average 20% of total participants. The result is that our event creates opportunities for entire families to participate in the race and fosters multiple generations of participation and spectating.
