Silver Lake Try the Tri

Want to try a Triathlon?  Swim 400 yards, Bike 12 miles, Run 2 miles

We are extremely excited to announce the inaugural Silver Lake Try the Tri Triathlon in Wilmington, MA on Saturday July 8th, 2017 at 7:30AM.  Rain date is Sunday July 9th. 

What is it?

Similar to the highly successful Claire Cloutier Try the Tri held weekly on Wednesday evenings in Tyngsboro, this unique event is geared towards both novice beginners and those more experienced looking for a practice "race".  Note:  the open water swim in beautiful Silver Lake will have a beginners buoy, giving you a chance to shorten the swim if so desired.  You can also chose to make it a duathon (bike/run only) or aquabike (swim/bike only).  

Additional event information and details including course maps will be released once finalized. 

Any questions, please email Dave Tyler at or Kristen Kelley at

Who can participate and how much?

Because we had 20 people reply that they plan to do this practice triathlon race on this coming Saturday, we've decided that pre-registration is necessary to allow us to manage within our limit of 25 participants. Please use this link to pay as soon as possible.  Having RSVP'd to me last week does not guarantee you a slot.  Then when you arrive on event morning,  just give your name at the registration table,  sign the waiver, and get your number and body marking. 

Entry fee is $20, and $30 for first time non-member guests.  The event is limited to 25 participants.

When is it? 

The inaugural Silver Lake Try the Tri will be held on Saturday July 8th, 2017 at 7:30AM.  Rain date is Sunday July 9th.
