The Whaling City Tri & Du is a sprint distance triathlon and duathlon (and splash & dash!) to be held on Sunday, July 21, 2019 at historic Fort Taber Park in New Bedford, MA.
The triathlon is a terrific race for beginner and seasoned triathletes alike. The 0.25 mile swim takes place in Buzzards Bay, the 11.4-mile bike course is flat, fast and scenic and closed to traffic and the 3.1 mile run is all on sidewalks and walking paths offering gorgeous water views and a fantastic finish in historic Fort Taber Park.
The duathlon is the USAT Northeast Duathlon Regional Championship features a 1.1 mile run that is almost entirely inside Fort Taber Park followed by the same 11.4 mile bike and 3.1 mile run featured in the triathlon.
With multiple opportunities to see athletes on the swim, as they ride the bike course, and complete an out and back run course, this is one of the most spectator-friendly multisport races in New England!
The Whaling City Tri & Du SOLD OUT in 2018 and 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of this popular event.
