Located on the outskirts of Allentown, PA at Lake Nockamixon State Park the Independence Triathlon is a great early season race to check your legs. Just 90 minutes from New York and 60 minutes from Philadelphia, this race is easy to get to and so much fun to race! Athletes will swim one or two 750 meter laps in the crisp, fresh waters of Lake Nockamixon (70’sh) then race Sprint or Olympic distance races on the closed bike course. Yup, the local fire police shut down the well paved, rolling roads for the race; it’s 4 lanes wide and car free. Lastly, there’s a scenic, rolling run course on the shoulder of 563. This is a great early season event and is not to be missed. Plus, Allentown, PA is a pretty fun town with lots of things to do including mountain bike trails, rail trails, Dorney Park and more. Find more things to do HERE, and make a “race-cation” out of it!

Be part of the great experience. Here are some comments from last year’s race.
"Independence Triathlon is a well run, safe, and fun race! The swim is in a clean lake and the bike and run on well paved CLOSED roads! You can't beat this venue for the beauty and the course." Bib #10
"This was a well run race. Very organized with great volunteers. The swim course was marked very well and the bike and run were challenging but fair. Great race overall " Bib #348
"I've been doing races in Nockamixon for going on 2 decades now. I love where this was located. It couldn't be more perfect and I did the other race series that goes on in the park for over 10 years. Very, very well done and even the parking was creative and contributed to the course. That was absolute genius to have the run go around the parked cars. Honestly, absolutely brilliant." Bib #37
