The Marsh Creek Sprint Triathlon is an amazing race in a beautiful location. Staged out of Marsh Creek State Park, this race is located just west of Philadelphia, PA and minutes from the Turnpike. The time trial swim takes place in 500 acre Marsh Creek Lake and features a single loop, rectangular shaped swim course. The bike course is a beautiful, well paved, single loop 20k course that takes athletes through a mix of technical sections and long straightaways alongside trout streams and forests. The new 5k run course is entirely within the park and has beautiful lake views and a good uphill at mile 2. There is a ton to see and do outside of the race with kayak rentals, great restaurants and rural, back country roads.  Click HERE to learn more and plan your trip.

Be part of the great experience. Here are some comments from last year’s MarshMan Triathlon race.

"This was my first triathlon and because of how well the race was put together, the event staff, the organizers, and the racers I will definitely be back again! Thank you MarshMan!"

"The Marshman Sprint Triathlon got me exercising in a serious way and in the best shape of my life at age 66. Each leg is achievable for anyone, and putting them altogether is an achievement you can be proud of."

Swim Start

Time Trial Swim Start: Kinetic Multisports races utilize a time trial swim start. We'll start two (2) athletes at a time every few seconds. Athletes line up based on swim and overall finish times, faster up front, slower in the back to create a smoother race for everyone.

Elite Box Start: In conjunction with our time trial swim starts we are excited to announce the official addition of the Elite Box Start at select races. If you are in contention to get Top 20 Overall Male/Female or just want to race up front, this is for you. Simply work your way to the front of the swim start area on race day. We'll get you lined up and started first, then athletes two at time every few seconds thereafter. The Elite Box Start concept worked well at many races last year and we are excited to add this feature to more races.
