First timer and anxious about your first race?
Competitive triathlete and looking for a great race?
36° North offers a race experience like no other!
Founded by veteran triathletes and managed by Fleet Feet Sports, 36° North Sprint Triathlon was designed from start to finish to maximize the race day experience for participants and their families.
This race was founded to maximize the race day experience for participants and their families. The race starts with a spectator-friendly pool swim in the beautiful outdoor pool at Tanglewood Park, followed by a scenic 12 mile bike ride, and finishes with a 5K course that offers both on-road and off-road running. At the finish line, the expo area offers plentiful activities for families and children, not to mention a nice cold brew and massage for participants. The post-race expo is bigger and better than you'd expect for a sprint triathlon.
The 2012 36° North Triathlon was cancelled due to construction in Tanglewood Park. But, construction in 2012 means bigger and better in 2013!

All participants must submit a 100 meter swim time for seeding purposes.
Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest.
It is in your best interest to submit an accurate 100 meter "pace" time for your 300 meter swim. In other words, don't submit your fastest 100 meter swim time, submit a 100 meter time that represents what you'll do on race day over the 300 meter distance.
By seeding yourself properly, you'll end up swimming near people who swim the same pace as you. This will reduce the number of people who you will need to pass or the number of people who will be passing you. Click HERE to learn how to submit and change swim times.
Pool Swim Etiquette:
It is appropriate for a swimmer to yield at the wall and wait to be passed if the person behind them is "on their feet" or "tickling their toes". These issues come about it seems from not properly determining an accurate 100 meter swim time.
Swim Time Changes:
Last chance to verify or change your swim time! If you need to submit a swim time change, or are unsure, please visit www.setupevents.com. Go to your personal profile on the Set Up Events website. The swim time that is associated with your personal profile is what we will use to seed you for the 36 North Triathlon swim start. Any changes to your profile that were submitted prior to May 15th will be reflected.
Changing Swim Times:
EVERYONE should get in the habit of double checking their swim time. Even if you THINK you entered a correct time, DOUBLE CHECK IT! Every single year, at every single pool swim, there are participants that had "fat fingers" and keyed in an extremely incorrect swim time and end up seeded last. So just double check your time to be sure it is keyed in correctly. And remember this is a 100 meter swim split (not 50!).
Our registration system allows for people to access their registrations and adjust their swim times prior to the race.
NOTE: All swim times must be adjusted no later than Friday, May 3rd.
After May 3rd, participants will have to make changes directly by clicking the Contact Us Form at the top of this page.
USAT Rules and Information
Most Commonly Violated USAT Rules:
ALL USAT members must show proof of a current membership at packet pick up. If you have recently renewed a membership, then you MUST print out a temporary card or receipt of payment (that shows length of the membership period) to show at packet pick up. We will not take your word for it that your membership is current; you must SHOW us. Failure to do so will result in having to pay the one-day fee of $10.
CLICK HERE to be taken to the USAT website where you can renew your membership or print out a temporary card. You can also renew your membership at packet pick up if that's easier for you.
If I entered my USAT information when I registered, then why do I need to show my card at packet pick up? USAT rules state that all USAT members must show a valid membership card at packet pick up and failure to do so will result in having to pay the 1-day fee. Our events are sanction by USAT, therefore, we must follow these rules. Our website is not connected to USAT's website, so the information that you enter when you register could be incorrect. We must physically document the current expiration date of your membership when you pick up your packet as this is the only way we can confirm 100% that your membership is in fact current.
USAT's "Age Up" Policy:
An athlete's age for any USAT sanctioned race will be his/her age as of Dec. 31, 2012 . The age he/she is on 12/31 will determine his/her racing age group. If an athlete is due to "age-up" into the next group, it will happen at the beginning of the year, not after the athlete's birthday. This action aligns regular U.S. age group racing with the method used by USA Triathlon for its National Rankings Program and its new Grand Prix Series.
Example: John Smith is 39 and will turn 40 on November 20, 2012.
John will be considered 40 for all 2012 races - and will race in the 40-44 age group at all 2012 races.
Sally Jones is 29 and will turn 30 on July 3, 2012.
Sally will be considered 30 for all 2012 races - and will race in the 30-34 age group at all 2012 races.
