Start Time: 9:00AM

One of the most scenic Triathlons in the US is moving! Don’t fret, it’s just down the road! All the scenery will remain with beautiful bay views and seaside landscape. This season ending race has outgrown the smaller site of Demarest Lloyd SP and will now provide an incredible location for easy access in/out of the park, plenty of parking and a swim course that doesn't include a rocky start:) The beautiful bike course will continue to be set in Dartmouth and Westport, where you’ll encounter farmhouses and cottages straight from a Martha Stewart magazine…the run course finishes on the beach path with amazing views...a truly great race experience!
"I enjoyed all three Max races I did this year and was impressed at the levels of
commitment, passion and meticulous preparation that everyone put into each one. However,
Buzzards Bay surpassed my expectations by far as a spectacular venue and course and the
dedication of all RDs, volunteers, police and park officials was by far the best I've seen.
Careful attention to every detail including the two complete sound set ups and DJs showed that
Max Performance lived up to its promise for this year. The communication with police and park
officials and volunteers and vendors and their responsiveness to us as triathletes was key in
making this race safe and fun and I think the Buzzards Bay Tri is going to be your signature
race for years to come. It was great to have a late season race and I'm very much looking
forward to next year's races."

Course Layouts (New!)
The point-to-point ocean swim will highlight all that Buzzards Bay has to offer! Rectangular in shape, you’ll make two turns during the 1/3 Mile Swim. This swim proves to be a bit more challenging than a lake swim with some fun surf!
Triathletes have come to know the Farm Coast area quite well, with rolling pastures and views of the Bay! You’ll pass through some beautiful neighborhoods in Westport with farm cottages and stonewalls! This is what makes the Buzzards Bay Tri the most scenic race! 11.6 Miles Online Mapping Here
The 3.1 Mile Run is flat as a pancake, set right along the ocean. You’ll get to run out to Gooseberry Island with short turnaround and head back along the walkway. Finish Strong under Max's 25" Arch as family and friends cheer you on! It’s a great way to capture a PR for a 5k!
