2018 Megunticook Triathon: Swim, bike and run

Posted:  Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 8:45pm


CAMDEN – Every Labor Day weekend for 38 years, athletes have glided through the waters of Megunticook Lake before cycling, then running their way to the finish line.

Saturday, Sept. 1 was no exception. For the past two years the event has been known as the Megunticook Race Festival, organized by a new team of coordinators. The enthusiasm remains the same.

Individuals chose from two triathlon options, and a few others opted for a singular three-plus mile road race.

Roadways remained open during the event. And, as Scott Layton forewarned athletes, a yard sale was in progress at one already challenging Lincolnville intersection.
