Organiser's Description

ABOUT THE RACE
Trident Multisport was established in 2012 with the idea of bringing quality multisport events to our local area and has worked hand and hand with DQ Events and their staff for over the last 11 years. We have established some high quality, fun, safe events that include the Phoenix Sprint, the Stafford Sprint & Run for HOPE, and the Brookville Olympic/Sprint.
I have always wanted to have a race at Wells Mills because of the unqiue, beautiful trails it offers. Taking a small idea from the Survival of the Shawangunks Triathlon, I created something unique and special here in NJ with the help of the Wells Mills County Park and Citia Boyscout Camp. You won't find any other race like this around. - Ross Reynolds, Race Director

DISTANCES (Exciting NEW race format for 2023)
Wells Mills County Park will host a “one of a kind” event this fall. Multisport athletes will be challenged to a very unique and technical 5-stage triathlon or duathlon covering some very challenging terrain. The run  has great single track trails that wind you through tall cedars and over long foot bridges.
**Same great trail runs as the original Survival race just a little different order of stages. Nice lake swim and a not so flat road bike course, just not the double bike leg which I know some of you loved and some of you not so much! **
