Course Info: The Whaling City Tri & Du is a sprint distance triathlon and duathlon (and splash & dash!) to be held on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at Fort Taber Park in New Bedford, MA, a vibrant and culturally rich city that is America?s #1 fishing port.

The triathlon is a terrific race for beginner and seasoned triathletes alike. The 0.25 mile swim takes place in Buzzards Bay, the 11.4-mile bike course is flat, fast and scenic and closed to traffic and the 3.1 mile run is all on sidewalks and walking paths offering gorgeous water views and a fantastic finish in historic Fort Taber Park.

The duathlon features a 1.1 mile run that is almost entirely inside Fort Taber Park followed by the same 11.4 mile bike and 3.1 mile run featured in the triathlon.

More: With multiple opportunities to see athletes on the swim, as they ride the bike course, and complete an out and back run course, this is one of the most spectator-friendly triathlons in New England!
