Sunday, October 6, 2024

Pedal, Paddle, Pace

From competitive athletes to weekend warriors of all ages, the Marshalton Triathlon is a premier community sporting event for all skill levels. Are you up for the challenge?

The Marshalton Triathlon kicks off in front of the West Bradford Fire Company with a 2.3 mile ride through the historic village of Marshallton. 

Leg 1: Pedal
2.3 Mile Downhill Race to the Brandywine

The crew of Northbrook Canoe Company will assist you and a partner into a canoe for a refreshing 2.3 mile paddle along the Brandywine. The water level of the Brandywine determines the challenge of the next 2.3 miles and the pros from Northbrook Canoe Company are on hand to assist along the way.

Leg 2: Paddle
2.3 Mile Two-Person Canoe Race on the Brandywine River

Back on land, participants walk briskly for 2.4 miles starting on a paved surface that leads to a lush forest path. Warning! Race Marshals will disqualify runners.

Leg 3: Pace
2.4 Mile Race Walk Through the Back Trails of Chester County

Everyone is back on their bicycles and pushing hard for the finish line. The challenge of this final leg is the uphill ride on Northbrook Road, with the firehouse Finish Line just around the corner. Finishers then join family and friends for a well-deserved pat on the back, refreshments and entertainment at the Triathlon Festival. 

Leg 4: Pedal
2.3 Mile Return to the Finish Line at the Marshalton Inn
