Rockwood Park Cross (Off-Road) Triathlon / Duathlon

Rockwood Park is a spectacular park in the heart of Saint John comprising 2200 acres with its own Golf Course, Zoo, numerous lakes, trails and breathtaking scenery and now on August 31 we are proud to announce our first ever Off-Road Triathlon, or Cross Triathlon as it is formally known, within the Park.

Race Date – Saturday 31 August from Fisher Lake parking lot. Race Start time will be 9.00am and registration will open at 7.30am

We will offer 3 races on race day:

Sprint Distance Tri – 500m swim – 11k bike – 5k run

Olympic Distance Tri – 1k swim – 22k bike – 10k run – this will be 2 laps of the sprint course

Sprint Duathlon – 2.5k run – 11k bike – 5k run

The Route

Swim – Fisher Lake

Bike – Please click on this link for our bike course completed once for the Sprint and twice for the Olympic race. The bike course is not suitable for Cyclocross bikes and takes in a mixture of wide trails such as this photo of the Zoo trail, some single track and a very short section of road. There are few longish hill sections but are not particularly technical but I would expect that a few riders may have to walk up some sections.

Run – our unique run will follow the trails around all the Provincial monuments before heading out onto the trails around the park. There will be a mixture of road, wide easy underfoot gravel trails and some single trail – more details to follow.
