Fairlee Triathlon

Title: Fairlee Triathlon
Location: Fairlee, Vermont
Date: 2011-07-17


Description: After 10 years of directing the Cranberry Trifest, and the Patriot Triathlon, it is my privilege to partner with Streamline Events in resurrecting what was once one of the most popular races in New England, the Fairlee Triathlon. The event will take place on the property of the beautiful Lake Morey Resort which 20 minutes from Hanover, New Hampshire (home of Dartmouth College), 2.5 hours drive from Boston and Hartford, under three of Montreal, and four hours from New York.
Located on the Connecticut River border with New Hampshire, just north of Dartmouth College, Fairlee personifies rural Vermont and is a great destination for a weekend of racing in the foothills of the Green Mountains. I can recall that the first time I raced there many years ago, my wife and I awoke to a moose gliding by the window of our room at the Lake Morey Resort. The 1.5k swim in the pristine waters of Lake Morey is one of the most enjoyable I’ve ever done. The 40k bike route travels over little used roads and contains two moderate climbs and a downhill stretch that seems to go on for miles. The 10k run around Lake Morey features aid stations operated by excited campers from Camp Aloha and Camp Lanikila two of the five wonderful summer camps operated by the Aloha Foundation.
