Wednesday Wonders Sprint Triathlon Series is a grass roots, affordable, low key event meant to be accessible to all triathletes from beginners looking to gain experience in this amazing sport to elite athletes looking for a power workout.
This Sprint Triathlon Series features OPEN WATER SWIM in a beautiful lake, ROAD CYCLING and a tree lined FIRE ROAD RUN. Each race limited to 100 athletes. Races held at a truly majestic place, Wawayanda State Park in Hewitt, NJ (West Milford).
Race one, two or compete for the series championship by racing all three. Only $65 for one race or $159 for the whole 3 race series. Series racers will earn a free limited edition race Tshirt.
The triathlons start with 400 Meter swim in Wawayanda Lake, probably be the most inspiring open water swim of your season! From the beach enter Transition and head on to the road for two laps, relatively flat but curvy, 8.3 miles bike course. Back to Transition and head onto the picturesque 2.25 miles run course which we recommend trail running sneakers for. The course goes down fire road alongside Wawayanda Lake to the historic Furnace. Then left alongside a creek, before turning onto cinder path. A hard left and you’re on a dirt road surrounded by the forest before heading to the far parking area and the finisher chute.
Packet Pickup Opens at 5:30 PM and races start at 6:30 PM. Race Maps are located at the bottom of our home page.
Transition area will have snow fencing around it and access restricted to racers.

Prizes will be of the unique and special variety.
Volunteers are welcome – we will need help setting up each race day 12PM-5PM, during the event and clearing the course, cones, etc after. Volunteer at one of these sprint triathlons, and we’ll give you $30 off a future race and earn our eternal appreciation.
