Description: The beach front transition area, challenging and scenic race courses, and crowds of spectators have made this race a New England favorite for many years. Plus the Appleman Triathlon is managed by F.I.R.M., the largest race production company in the Northeast.  

The Appleman Triathlon sells out quickly so register early if you want to call yourself an Appleman this year. 


This race is a fundraiser for the Littleton Rotary Club. The Littleton Rotary Club raises funds to support the Littleton High School scholarship fund, Loaves and Fishes, The Children's Hands-On Art Museum, Indian Hill Arts, SADD and other local civic and charitable organizations. The Rotary Club also contributes towards Rotary International's efforts to eradicate Polio throughout the world. Over the years the Rotary Club of Littleton has contributed over $200,000 to these community and international projects.
Course Info: The GPS measured swim takes place in placid Long Pond and is a .50 mile triangular course. There will be five swim waves with each swim wave going off every three minutes. Athletes are assigned to swim waves based on their race category (age group, relay division, athena, clydesdale). Swim angels are available for athletes who would like an experienced triathlete to accompany them on the swim.

The bike is a single loop through the Littleton with some hills in the park area that are sure to raise your heart rate a beat or two.


The run is one of the most interesting run routes of any sprint triathlon with an off road section that keeps you focused and gives you great material for your post race stories. You enter the Two Brothers Trail through a gate across from the Congregational Church on King St. (#13 on Map). It follows the right edge of two large fields before entering the woods. Once in the woods you cross two parallel rock walls after which the trail turns left through some wetlands. It then turns uphill steeply with a left turn where it intersects another trail coming in from the right.  It flattens out for a bit and then at the large Pine Tree there's another trail intersection with a sign post. Don't go straight (to Edsel Rd), instead turn right up a steep hill.  At the top of the hill take a left at the sign post. The trail goes down into a gully and then back up to Birch St where the trail section ends. Turn right down the hill on Birch St. toward the lake and the finish line. The run finishes along the beach with cheering spectators fueling the athletes along the final stretch. Then it's under the giant F.I.R.M. finish arch and on to the post race festivities.
