An ideal destination event for families looking to combine their passion for multisport with a summer weekend in the heart of New England, the New England Trifest will be June 29-30, 2013.

Sun Multisport Events is led by owner and USAT Certified Race Director, Mark Walter, and is the event management team behind the TRI-MANIA Summit and Expo series (formerly known as the Multisport World Conference and Expo) and a series of popular, first-class multisport events including the Patriot Half and Cranberry Trifest.

"We are thrilled to add a new Trifest to our 2013 event line-up." says Walter. "Fairlee, Vermont has a special place in in the history of triathlon in New England and we're excited to bring two longer course triathlons back to the Upper Connecticut River Valley. Local support has been terrific and late June is perfect timing for these events".

Fairlee, VT was home to a popular olympic distance triathlon in the late 1990s and early 2000s that was based at Lake Morey. The New England Trifest will be based at Camp Horizons which is situated on Lake Fairlee. The swim for the half and olympic races will take place in pristine Lake Fairlee while the bike will take athletes through the towns of Fairlee, West Fairlee, Thetford and Norwich including the infamous "Thetford Hill". The run for the half and olympic will be an out and back along Fairlee country roads.

In addition to a great set of races, the New England Trifest will offer spectator-friendly events and attractions including food, entertainment and an expo featuring companies focused on the endurance athlete as well as local businesses offering a variety of products "made in Vermont".
