2024 RACES




Wawayanda State Park

Wednesday Wonders Sprint Triathlon Series returns again for another memorable Summer of our grass roots, affordable, low key event.  Race is meant for triathletes from first timers looking to gain experience in this amazing sport to elite athletes looking for a power workout. There’s Kid’s races at all of these races as well.

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).


Races capped at 125.



The adult 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. The KIDS Triathlon will have a 150 meter swim, 4.25 Mile Bike and 1 Mile Run.

Packet Pickup Opens at 5:00 PM and Kid’s races start at 5:45 PM followed by Adult Race 6:00 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.

All races will be USA Triathlon sanctioned and follow all rules. Event will be manually timed to keep registration fees low!


Prizes will be of the unique and special variety.


Volunteers are welcome – we will need help setting up each race day starting at 1:00 PM, 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. Email us at if you’d like to lend a hand.

Join us this Summer!
