The Wildwoods, NJ – July 12, 2021 – The 18th Annual Stampone Law ‘Tri the Wildwoods’ Triathlon will take place along North Wildwood’s beaches, streets and boardwalk on Saturday, July 24 with hundreds of athletes from across the country participating in this “rite of passage race.”
The Triathlon’s Sprint division will feature a ¼ mile swim, 10-mile bike race, and 3.1-mile beach/boardwalk run. The Sprint will begin at 6:30 a.m. The Olympic division begins at 6:50 a.m. and will feature a .6-mile swim, 18-mile bike race, and a 5-mile run.
The event will also include a Sprint or Olympic Division Duathlon, and a Spring or Olympic Division Aquabike.
‘Tri the Wildwoods’ has always been known as a race of unpredictable weather, a challenging course, and possibly the best after party for a triathlon in the state of New Jersey! Simply stated, it’s a “must do” triathlon.
It is an USA Triathlon sanctioned event, and first took place in the Wildwoods in August 2004. Since then, it has grown to attract more than 1,500 runners each year from throughout the northeast, as well as athletes from areas including: Colorado, California, Ireland, Iceland and Canada. Prizes will be awarded to the winners in each age group immediately following the race.
Past champions of this race include USAT Olympian Joe Maloy (a Wildwoods native!), former USAT Olympian Jarod Shoemaker, and Lifetime Fitness Champion Alicia Kaye. The spirit of this classic Jersey shore triathlon is not with the pros, but with the “Joe’s”; the thousands of age groupers who have made it to the starting line since 2004.
