CAMDEN — The race challenges are set and now it is up to what one wants to do — one, two or all.

The three fall athletic fitness challenges to benefit One Community Many Voices, a non-profit, and their community partners include a triathlon festival, mountain trail races and mountain obstacle course scuttle.

The first of those fitness challenges occurred on Saturday morning, Sept. 3 in the 42nd annual Megunticook Tinman Triathlon, presented by Back Cove Yachts, at Barrett’s Cove on Megunticook Lake.

The family-friendly event included five events in one: sprint, Olympic and relay triathlons, 5-kilometer run/walk and children’s swim/run.

Katie Clayton, 25, finished first in the Olympic triathlon in 2:28:11, while Brady Fluet, 19, placed atop the sprint triathlon in 1:10:5. In the 5K, or 3.1-mile event, Andrew Brunton, 33, was first in 23:04.

There also were children’s duathlons of varying distances.

The Olympic triathlon could be done by individuals or relay team. It included 0.75-mile swim, 23.5-mile bike and 6.6-mile run.

The sprint triathlon, strictly for individuals, included a 750-meter swim, 12-mile bike and 3.2-mile run.

The 5K run/walk was 3.1 miles (or a bit longer).

For the youth duathlons, the Red Fish course included a 75-meter swim and half-mile run. The Blue Fish course included a 750-meter swim and 1.25-mile run.

Megunticook Tinman Triathlon builds on the history of the original Tinman and Maine Sport Triathlon, one of the longest-standing races in the country. It is organized by a group of dedicated and passionate area volunteers and supported through local business sponsorship.

Profits this year go to OCMV and Midcoast Recreation Center’s Theodore Hedstrom Scholarship.
