The 2nd Annual Tri for Preservation Sprint Triathlon and Aquabike, presented by Noyes, Hall & Allen Insurance to benefit the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust, takes place on Sunday, August 19, 2012 at Crescent Beach State Park in Cape Elizabeth.
The Tri for Preservation triathlon consists of a 500-yard ocean swim along the well-protected cove of Crescent Beach. Participants then transition to a 14-mile, rolling bike course past the scenic farmlands and marshlands of Cape Elizabeth. The course concludes with a well-marked 3.1-mile run along the shore of Crescent Beach (on a well-maintained fire road) towards Kettle Cove and back along Route 77.
The Tri for Preservation Aquabike is ideal for those who want to compete but do not run. The aquabike features the same swim and bike course as the triathlon. The aquabike concludes upon return to the transition area after the bike leg of the race.
The Tri for Preservation has set aside a number of slots for triathlon teams this year, including a family relay competition.
The Tri for Preservation also plays host to the Maine Senior Games with the triathlon serving as a state-qualifying event for the national competition. Athletes aged 50 as of December 31, 2011 are welcome participants.
Following the race, the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust will host a beachside pancake breakfast for all our athletes, followed by an awards ceremony. athletes may stop by the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust office to register.
The Tri for Preservation presented by Noyes Hall & Allen insurance, an independent Maine insurance agency, benefits the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust’s efforts to preserve natural woodlands, marshes, farmlands and shore lands for the enjoyment of this, and future generations.
