Transcend – Trail Run & Multisport Off Road Festival

June 18 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

Way over Yonder transcend final square version

Triathlon, Duathlon, AquaBike, Paddle Tri & Kids Tri

Trail Run 50K, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K

Transcend features our most accessible Trail Run & Off Road Triathlon and perfect for all those road runners and cyclists that want the chance to get in on all this fun in the dirt.

It’s a bit of an anomoly in Northern New Jersey that there’s almost no rocks in the entire park. Just plenty of fast and flowy singletrack that reminds us of the European ITU Cross courses. Don’t worry, there still will be plenty of challenge with 800 feet elevation gain for each 6 mile loop of the Mountain Bike course.

The Top 15 runners in the 50K, Half Marathon & 10K Categories will earn points towards being crowned series champion.

TRIATHLON NOTES

  • Race course is Hardtail Mountain Bike or Fat Bike friendly. We did have some race on Gravel bikes last year, but you do run the risk of flatting when you hit the rooty sections. Mountain Bike bib must be attached to front of your bike and visible so we can identfy you as a racer. There will be a sticker on this bib to differentiate from your running bib.
  • Recommend racers bring a running belt for the Trail Run portion. You will be attaching your Run bib in T2 (NOT BEFORE) and this is the quickest way to put one on and head out for your run.

We’re working on a second mid-10K loop aid station in the back of the park, but need more volunteers to cover.
