Race Day Schedule

2017 Marshalton Triathlon Schedule for Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1.
  

We are happy to announce this year’s race SOLD OUT!

This is the first time in many years and we are thrilled, however there will be some new challenges.

The first is, if you are late and miss your heat, YOU MISS THE RACE! There is no room to move anyone into another heat.

Second, if you do not have a partner, you CAN NOT sign someone who has not already registered. You will either forfeit your participation or must find someone on race day. AGAIN, the race is SOLD OUT! Please do not ask us to add anyone as we cannot.

Shuttles to pick up spectators depart from behind the firehouse from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

There will be port-a-johns at the start and finish line and where participants enter/exit the canoe areas.

Ok, onto the details of the day!
