2019 Marks the 39th Year of the Triathlon
**New in 2019** Planning is underway for a kid’s aquathlon
The Megunticook Race Festival builds on the history of the original Tinman and Maine Sport Triathlon, one of the longest-standing races in the U.S. It is organized by a group of dedicated and passionate local volunteers and supported through local business sponsorship. All profits go to One Community Many Voices
This race is a great, family-friendly event. We aim to put on a quality race with chip timing, but will be keeping costs low in order to maximize funds going to our local community. So that means volunteer race directors and limited race swag.
