What we're about

Thank you for your interest in the group. My name is Richard and I am the new organizer. Others are certainly welcome to help organize the group. I will be scheduling meetups shortly. I intend to have weekday and weekend rides. There will be a mix of road, urban, and off-road rides. From local areas to destinations further away. I am looking to have fun and meet some great people. All experience levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. Most, if not all of the rides will be no drop with no one being left behind. The only rule will be to follow proper etiquette while riding in a group. I want to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience.

Racers will travel a total of 10 miles over the course. Participants pedal the first leg (a 2.3 mile bike race), paddle the second leg (a 3.0 mile canoe race; two-person canoes require a partner), pace the third leg (a 2.4 mile fast walk race; disqualification if running during the race), and pedal the fourth leg (a 2.3 mile return bike race). Canoes are supplied-no outside boats or tag alongs on bikes. The Marshalton Triathlon is Chester County’s premier community and sporting event that has flourished for forty years and counting. First run in 1973, it is considered one of the longest continually running triathlons in the country. With it’s first running primarily recreational for the patrons of the Marshalton Inn, the race has become an annual tradition for families and friends from all portions of Chester County. The race begins and ends in the village of Marshallton, and participants race over ten miles of beautiful Chester County. The race includes bicycling, canoeing and fast walking. The Marshalton Triathlon has grown from sixty competitors, in that first year, to include as many as 2200 participants and a thousand or more spectators. A unique feature of our race is that it is open to beginners; with a shorter race course than most traditional triathlons, allowing the 8-16 year old age group participants to average 20% of total participants. The result is that our event creates opportunities for entire families to participate in the race and fosters multiple generations of participation and spectating. The Cause The Marshalton Triathlon is a volunteer organization, staffed by nearly a hundred volunteers that donates its proceeds to outstanding local organizations. Since 1976, The West Bradford Fire Company (WBFC) has been the primary beneficiary. A more recent benefactor of the Marshalton Triathlon is the Marshallton Conservation Trust (MCT).
