The challenging, highly rewarding Litchfield Hills Triathlon allows athletes to enjoy the scenic beauty of New Hartford, CT and the surrounding area in this Olympic distance event.

Olympic Triathlon and AquaBike

Swim Course:The swim is a 1500m course in the clean, clear waters of West Hill Lake, which has one of the highest water ratings in the state. Swim waves start three minutes apart from the beach at Brodie Park. The swim is a counter-clockwise triangular course of 750 meters with the athletes exiting the water and completing a second loop followed by a 1/4 mile uphill run to the Transition. (Bring a pair of shoes to leave at the waterfront; you don't want to make this run barefoot)

Bike Course:Bike a beautiful loop course along back roads and wide shouldered main roads with a screaming downhill at the start and a rather painful uphill at the end. In between, the course rolls without any major up or downhills. The course measures 24.8 miles.
