Vermont Sun hosts 37th triathlon series this summer

ROTH BERNSTEIN OF Burlington competes in the July 14, 2019, Vermont Sun Sprint Triathlon at Branbury State Park. Vermont Sun’s 2022 summer race series kicks off this Sunday with 5K, 10K and half-marathon road races at Branbury.

The Vermont Sun 5K, 10K and Half Marathon will be held Sunday, May 15, at Branbury State Park on Lake Dunmore in Salisbury. The series continues with three Triathlon dates.

The signature Vermont Sun sprint triathlon will be held June 25, July 17, and Aug. 14. The Lake Dunmore Olympic distance triathlon will be held June 25 and Aug. 14. The sprint event consists of a 600-yard swim, 14-mile bike and 3.1-mile run. The Olympic distance is 1,600 swim, 28-mile bike and 6.2 mile run.

For those that would like to paddle as opposed to swim, the Branbury Classic Triathlon on July 17 provides a course of a 1.5-mile paddle, 14-mile bike, and 3.1-mile run.

The June triathlons are the USA Triathlon state championships. Those events and all the others are open to anyone. The short sprint races attract many first time recreational athletes.

Each triathlon is friendly to those that don’t want to do all three legs as it has a team division. There is also an aqua bike option in each race where individuals just do the water and bike courses and do not run.

The events always include plenty of amenities like food, refreshments, professional photographs, water bottles, swim caps, chip timing, custom awards, race tactical t-shirts, race numbers, massage and more.

Complete information on entering or helping with the triathlons and road runs can be found at vermontsun.com or by calling 802-388-6888.
