Description

Welcome to the 21st year of the Hudson Valley Triathlon Club and its Summer Tri Series.  Join us for this Sprint Triathlon we think you will find challenging and a whole lot of fun!  Great for individuals and relay teams of all levels.  Held in the gorgeous setting of the Kenneth L. Wilson State Park near Woodstock, NY.  Two hours north of NYC and one hour south of Albany.

  Known for many years as the "Unofficial World Championships" ~ we've got some fast, kick-ass triathletes that race with us. So, both seasoned triathletes and true beginners in the sport will find that this race is for them.  

Hudson Valley Triathlon Club (HVTC) Summer Tri Series

400m swim, 12 mile bike and 2 mile run.  USAT sanctioned
