Survival of the Mills Races
Wells Mills County Park will host a “one of a kind” event this fall. Multisport athletes will be challenged to a very unique and technical 7-stage triathlon or 5-stage duathlon covering a total of about 26+ miles.
The Triathlon is a continuous 7-stage (run/bike/run/swim/ run/bike/run) race with 6 transitions. The race includes 4 unique trail runs, 2 bike legs on quite rolling country roads and one lake swim.
The Duathlon is a continuous 5-stage (run/bike/run/bike/run) race with 4 transitions. The duathlon will be the same distances and course as the triathlon minus the swim.
The 5k run/walk will be on the same 3.1 mile course as the final stage of the Tri/Du. The 5k course has beautiful scenic trails and takes you around the wells mills lake. The run also has great single track trails that wind you through tall cedars and over long foot bridges.
What's the Word
"I have been waiting for something new to challenge my abitlities. This race definately looks like it will do that. Tri Guy.
"I am not much of a runner but I want to come out and support a race that is helping raise money for Davids Dream and Believe, so I am going to walk the 5k" Advocate
"These trails will leave your lungs sceaming for more..." Breath of Fresh Air
I have always wanted to have a race at Wells Mills because of the unqiue, beautiful trails it offers. Taking a small idea from the Survival of the Shawangunks Triathlon, I created something unique and special here in NJ with the help of the Wells Mills County Park and Citia Boyscout Camp. You won't find any other race like this around.
