We are excited to announce our 30th anniversary on September 13 2015! Our event has grown into a fun, family friendly local event and we would like to celebrate with you our 30 years of existence.
To celebrate our anniversary we will be offering to all participants a beautiful finisher’s medal and a tee-shirt!
New this year we will be rewarding relays with new categories:
- corporation (all team members must work for the same corporation)
- town teams (all team members must work for the same city halls, police or fire departments)
- high schools
- middle schools
- fastest all male relay
- fastest all female relay
This is a fun family friendly event open to all ability levels. The swim is point to point at beautiful Compo Beach. The shorter bike and run courses are flat through lovely Compo Beach neighborhood streets. The event is ideal for first time timers, and families wishing to race together.
Awards for age group winners and relays and post race party for everyone will be provided after the race.
Tony Trujillo will be at the race finish providing massages for all of our racers!
The Westport Kiwanis Club has been active donating funds for local charities and scholarships. Here is an example of the funds used for the WEMS, which was a great help for the Westport Community - CLICK HERE.

Congratulations on a fantastic event. Tess and I had so much fun, we can't wait to do it again next year (as well as some of your other events and classes), and bring some other folks along too. We learned a lot about what the experience is, and just had a blast! What a gorgeous day and what a great setting. Anne R
Thank you for a great experience for my first race. The morning was a lot of fun. Please thank all the volunteers that worked today and up to today to get everything ready. I will remember this day for the rest of my life. I didn't win my age group or even finish very high but it was a great experience. Thank you so much for the opportunity to do this race. You guys are great. Paul S.
Awesome job on the tri!! Having the bike racks was a big help, everything (course, bike racks, registration) was marked well, volunteers were awesome (they were coming up to us instead of waiting for us to come to them to get body marks and chips). The overall atmosphere was very positive and happy!! Natasha
Last year I participated in the Westport Kiwanis Triathlon for the first time and throughly enjoyed the race. Having been a runner and racewalker for over 30 years and competing in international events, I could attest this was a very well run, organized and 1st time friendly event.
