Acadia Half Iron Triathlon
Welcome to the 1st Acadia Half-Iron Triathlon! We are so excited to have you join us. The money raised through your entry fees help sustain the YMCA's scholarship programs, ensuring that individuals and families have access to the care, services, and programs that can help them improve their lives through healthy living or community activities.
The Acadia Half Iron Triathlon starts in the town of Mount Desert on the northern shore of Long Pond. The 1.2 mile swim heads out from Pond's End towards the Western Mountains of Acadia National Park. The 56.1 mile bike route races through the rolling backroads of Mount Desert Island through picturesque villaes along the ocean, with beautiful views of Acadia's mountains, rock beaches, marshes, and ponds. The 13.6 mile run completes a scenic, but challenging, loop to finish on the MDI High School track.
Aqua-Bike option available.
