The Sea to Summit Triathlon is an Iron-caliber/ partially self supported race consisting of a 1.5 mile-ish swim, 95+ mile bike ride and strenuous 5.5 mile run up the “most dangerous” mountain in the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, Mt. Washington. The race starts at 5:00AM on Saturday, June 24th, 2017 at Vaughn Woods State Park adjacent to the Scenic Hamilton House (note this is a change back to the 2015 race start format)
This is not a race for beginners. Participation of a minimum of one half ironman distance race or equivalent race is required for entry into Sea to Summit 2.0. Athletes must have completed a 1/2 IM event in under 6 hours or an Iron-distance event in under 13 hours. The Race Director has the ability to let others in if he feels they have a good chance of making the cut off times.
Sea to Summit 2.0 was developed for those looking for a new and unique challenge. It's about standing at sea level and 7-12 hours later standing at the top of the highest point in the Northeast. This is an intimate race, with a limited field size of pre-qualified athletes.
There is no rain date and race managment reserves the right to modify or shorten the race course in case of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances; and to accept or reject any entry. No transfers or substitutions will be allowed. There will be no teams allowed and the mininum age of entry is 18.
