Cedar Lake Triathlon Series #1

Chester, CT

Ever want to do a triathlon? How about train for a big race with the same intensity but at a fraction of the cost? Cedar Lake Triathlon is your local home spun race series hosted by J.D. Ingalls. This series was developed to make you a better triathlete. Learn the rules and regulations of racing while competing with friends and family in a wonderful setting.  CLT was built with the athlete in mind. Our hope is to share sportsmanship, a healthy lifestyle, achievement of personal goals and develop a stronger racing community. Come on out!

500 Yard Swim*12 Mile Bike*5K Road Run

CLTS is the perfect tune up for those wanting a race with a limited field. The swim is competitive but not brutal. The ride is challenging and rolling and the run is fast and flat. You will get the real race experience at an affordable price. 

50% of net proceeds benefit the Valley Shore YMCA Race4Chase Youth Triathlon program to introduce young athletes to the sport of Triathlon in memory of Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski who lost his life with classmates at Sandy Hook in 2012.


Note: Registration is capped at 100 and only accepted online. There is no onsite registration.
