THE COURSE: NBX’s “Do It In The Woods!” Off-Road Triathlon.  Burlingame State Park is 3,100 acres of rocky woodland.  The course begins with a ¼ mile swim in Watchaug Pond at Burlingame State Park followed by a  single-loop mountain bike course that winds through Burlingame and concludes with a beautiful trail run that never leaves this magnificent park.

The Swim/Kayak: The .25 mile pond swim or 1 mile kayak is in Watchaug Pond.  Water temperatures averages between 55- 60 degrees.  Wetsuits highly recommended.  In the event of poor swim conditions, the race director, Burlingame Park Management reserve the right to
shorten, alter or eliminate the swim/kayak course.

The Bike: The bike course includes 8 miles of the single-track mountain bike trails, famous at Brulingame.  They climb, descend and roll through the park.  A course map is not available – but trust us, this course is fast, with some climbs, enough technical sections to keep you on your
toes and plenty of winding and rolling!  The course is single –track with a few sections wide enough to pass.  Please pass carefully.
