The Vermont Senior Games is pleased to announce that it will be staging its 2021 Triathlon championship in conjunction with the Vermont Sun Triathlon Series at beautiful Lake Dunmore.
Several considerations factored into this change. With the National Senior Games shifting the 2021 National Championships to 2022, and declaring 2021 to be yet another qualifying year, the VSG wanted to give local athletes the opportunity to compete in Florida next year. There is still uncertainty regarding the status of our traditional triathlon in Colchester. Steve Hare, the head of the Vermont Sun operation, has assured us that he will be doing everything in his power to hold this event.
The date for this event is Sunday July 18, with a 600-yard swim, 14-mile bike, and 5K run on the schedule. Vermont Sun has other events planned for May and June – also at Lake Dunmore – so we at the Vermont Senior Games are confident that they will have their COVID safety protocols in good shape by the time our race takes place. Registration is already open, and information can be found at www.vermontsuntriathlonseries.com .
