With one of the most unique venues in our racing family, the Top of Delaware Triathlon takes place at the top of a mountain. Athletes start their day with a swim in the Newark Reservoir, a lake quarried into the side of a mountain overlooking the City of Newark. After swimming the 750 meter course, athletes will run the 1/3 mile downhill to transition at the base of the reservoir. The bike course is rolling and sometimes technical, but those miles really fly as you quickly exit the City of Newark and roll through the elegant forests of White Clay Creek State Park and Middle Run Valley Natural Area. The bike course is rolling with great pavement and has mostly right hand turns. After T2, triathletes will run to the top of the reservoir to run the paved perimeter trail featuring skyline views of the City of Newark. We promise, this race will quickly become one of your new favorites.
We promise you’ll love this race. You can check out a race video HERE, then register HERE. Be sure to explore Newark before heading out of town or come in a day early to check out the local parks, restaurants and breweries, or ride some of the fantastic farm roads just outside of town.
