The Rough Patch is a race that defines the word rugged. This race highlights the rough terrain of the Pachaug State Forest and will take you over roots, rocks and swimming in Green Fall Pond. The area provides the best possible race day adventure and does so in a fun, friendly, family-focused environment. The race is in stark contrast to standard triathlon/duathlon experiences and will challenge athletes with uneven terrain, dirt, rocks, and tree limbs.
This area was chosen as the event site for its unique topographical characteristics, undeveloped natural beauty, and the challenge for both on-trail and off-trail routes.Amy Rice, an RD and USTA Certified Triathlon Coach, will be offering two pre-race clinics at Pachaug State Forest for athletes who would like a chance to preview the course. The pre-race clinics are also a great opportunity for Junior athletes to determine whether or not this race is suitable for their skill level. Pre-race clinic registration and information is available below and race registration is NOT required to participate.
