Race Dates: June 10-11, 2023
The Poconos Triathlon Festival, in conjunction with Settlers Hospitality and the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, has been selected as the 2023 USAT Pennsylvania State Championship for the Olympic and Sprint distances. Scheduled for June 10-11, athletes will race for state championship titles while enjoying beautiful courses and small-town hospitality in the Pocono Mountains.
Now in its third year, the Poconos Triathlon takes place at Lake Wallenpaupack, nestled in the northeastern corner of Pennsylvania. Just 90 minutes to NYC and 2.5 hours to Philadelphia, this is a great race-cation opportunity. The race features a beautiful lake swim and an all-new bike course on the “Towpath” along the Lackawaxen River, a designated PA Scenic Byway. The run course has great lake views and finishes on the Wallenpaupack Area High School track.
Both the Sprint and Olympic distance races are open to athletes 12 and up. Sprint athletes aged 15-18 that are currently in high school are eligible for the High School Championship. We encourage all youth athletes 12-18 to take advantage of Kinetic Multisports 50% Youth Pricing during this event or any Kinetic Multisports event.
“As a Pennsylvania native, I’m honored to host the Pennsylvania State Championships at the Poconos Triathlon Festival. This is a great race to showcase the sport and to share this wonderful area with our racing community,” said Greg Hawkins, Kinetic Multisports CEO and Race Director.
“The Pocono Mountains is pleased to host the 2023 USA Triathlon Pennsylvania State Championships at Lake Wallenpaupack,” added Chris Barrett, President/CEO of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. “This designation is testament to the beauty of the Pocono Mountains and the athletes experience since the race started in 2021. We welcome athletes race weekend and encourage them to visit and train in the Pocono Mountains year-round.”
The Poconos Triathlon Festival raises scholarship funds for deserving Wallenpaupack Area High School seniors who demonstrate outstanding character and grit.
