The Kennebunk Beach Triathlon Club was first conceived by a small group of local triathlon enthusiasts in 2006 who would train together on Thursday nights at Kennebunk Beach, enjoyed and valued the camaraderie and desired a common identity for recognition at race events. From this, the club was formally established in the spring of 2007. We're open to all, regardless of ability as we're made up of accomplished triathletes, those new to the sport anxious to learn and excel in their own right, and everything in-between. Your participation will be welcomed.
What We Do...
During the season, you will find us at Kennebunk Beach Thursday's at 6pm, engaged in a little friendly competition with our Thursday Night Super Sprint, a 100yd or so swim and 8-mile bike ride and 2-mile shore run starting in June. After that, we are usually holed up at Allison's for burgers and beer. Monday nights at 6pm, we don the wetsuits and take in a group swim at Kennebunk Pond or the beach, starting in May. Sunday mornings may see a group ride around the shore between Biddeford Pool and Kennebunk.
On the weekend, we are probably off to a race somewhere in the New England region and in September, our club runs the Mainiac Triathlon to benefit the local YMCA. In the off-season, many of our members continue to train at the Northern York County YMCA. Masters Swim classes are regularly in session and Total Immersion clinics are scheduled periodically.
