The 35th Annual Granite Man Triathlon is on Saturday, August 20, 2016. The triathlon is traditionally held on the 3rd Saturday in August.
The triathlon will begin and finish at Carry Beach which is located on Forest Road in Wolfeboro. The annual race regularly draws upwards of 350 triathletes from throughout New England and as far away as France. The race gets more popular each year, so register early to ensure your spot.
The race starts at beautiful Carry Beach on Forest Road in Wolfeboro and involves a ¾ mile swim, 15 mile bike ride and a 4.2 mile run. The event is open to individuals and teams, and we welcome first time and experienced racers. Go ahead and challenge yourself by registering and training for this fun event.
The triathlon’s proceeds sustain the Albert Dow III scholarship which is awarded to “that Kingswood High School Graduate who exemplifies unselfish devotion to the service of mankind.” Albert Dow III gave the ultimate sacrifice, his life, in the mountain search and rescue of two complete strangers on January 23, 1982. The Scholarship Fund memorializes both Albert’s heroic acts and his outstanding life while seeking to inspire others with his acts of service and selfless devotion.
