The Tri for Preservation event will be held on Aug. 12 at Crescent Beach State Park and will benefit the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust. Register now at

This sprint triathlon consists of a 500-yard ocean swim (wetsuits are required), then a 14-mile, rolling bike course past the scenic farmlands and marshlands of Cape Elizabeth and concludes with a 3.1-mile run.

Those who would prefer can compete in the aquabike event, which includes the swim and bike ride, or the duathlon, which starts with a 1.5 mile run followed by the same bike and swim events as the triathlon.
