Here’s a little history on the Colchester Triathlon…

The Colchester Triathlon has been a tradition for 36 years now.  The triathlon sponsor, the Colchester Parks & Recreation Department, takes pride in offering a quality event that participants will find both physically challenging and mentally satisfying, encouraging people to strive for exceptional physical conditioning while attaining the courage necessary to finish the race with their best personal time.  They recognize that being an athlete is not just about winning, but about developing a routine, being committed to training, and establishing a healthy lifestyle.  Their department mission is summarized as “Optimizing the Experience of Living,” and the Colchester Triathlon has become a vessel through which they encourage participants to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  The Colchester Triathlon is a community-centered event, drawing excited spectators from within and around the Town of Colchester to spend a summer morning together as they bring positive energy to cheer and congratulate the participants in the race.  The energy generated by the town for this annual event is undeniably euphoric.
