The Wave Sprit Triathlon begins at the picturesque South Kingstown Town Beach. We chose this beach not only for its beauty, as it looks out to Block Island, but for its family-friendly atmosphere. While you are racing your, family and friends can lounge on the beach, or enjoy the playground. The one loop cycling portion of the race will take you down a very fast and flat course following the beautiful Matunuck School House Road. You’ll Pass the Trustom Pond National Wild Refuge, (a great place for a post-race walk) then head through Charlestown, hop onto Scenic Route 1A, and finish back at the beach. The scenic run course is one loop with some rolling hills. The racers will pass by beautiful farm houses and fields with livestock. A fast downhill route through the Blackberry Hill section of Matunuck takes you to the finish line . The runners will return to the beach and enjoy a great post-race spread, a signature of the On Your Left Racing Series.
A bit about the history of the Matunuck:
The village of Matunuck lies on the south coast of Rhode Island in the town of South Kingstown. It was first inhabited by Native Americans, followed by the early Pettaquamscutt settlers, but it was not until after the end of the Civil War that it became a destination for leisure and fun. The village takes its name from a Native American word meaning “lookout” The Narragansett Tribe made a summer encampment at this location before the land was sold to colonists as part of the Pettaquamscutt purchase.

Rules: A Message from the Head Referee:
All competitors please read. It is your responsibility to know the rules!!! Most triathletes come to races with only a rudimentary understanding of the rules of the sport. Indeed, few have ever read through the Competitive Rules in its entirety. In order to minimize misunderstandings on race day, I hope you will take the time to read the following summary of Position Violations, which you probably know as the drafting rules. We have reduced the Position Rules to the following concepts, which everyone can remember:
- RIDE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR LANE
- NO DRAFTING! KEEP THREE BIKE LENGTHS BETWEEN YOURSELF AND THE CYCLIST IN FRONT OF YOU
- PASS ON THE LEFT OF THE CYCLIST IN FRONT, NEVER ON THE RIGHT
- COMPLETE YOUR PASS WITHIN 15 SECONDS
- IF PASSED, YOU MUST DROP COMPLETELY OUT OF THE ZONE, TO THE REAR, BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO REPASS
- ALWAYS HAVE YOUR CHINSTRAP FASTENED
- NO IPODS ALLOWED ON THE COURSE
Remember you are racing in a USA Triathlon sanctioned event and there are trained referees on the course to ensure fairness in the competition. There will be no warnings if you commit a foul during competition. Triathlon is an individual event and you must take personal responsibility to understand the rules and avoid penalties. We hope you have a great race, lots of fun, and achieve all of your goals.View USAT webpage or download
