What our coaches say about this course

A fairly fast course from a bike and run perspective and a great time of year in Maine from a temperature perspective. Our athletes love doing this course and our ocean open water swim workouts as part of this custom training plan.

About the race

Old Orchard Beach is a beautiful 7-mile strip of sandy beach that has operated for more than 170 years. The beach welcomes families and tourists alike, encouraging them to take advantage of weekly fireworks and concerts, fishing, whale watch tours, top-notch golf and more. The crown jewel of Old Orchard Beach is it’s pier, which stretches out nearly 500 feet over the Atlantic Ocean and serves as the start for IRONMAN Maine 70.3.

The bike course starts out flat and fast before taking riders into a series of rolling hills, giving them the chance to experience the beauty of the surrounding Maine farmland and countryside. Tall pine trees provide shade over much of the course, which winds through Saco, Dayton, Lyman, Waterboro, Hollis, and Old Orchard Beach. Most of the climbing is completed by the midway point with a long low grade climb on rte 5 (miles 10-15) and some rollers on South Waterboro Road (miles 19-25). The back half of the course consist of some fast flat/ downhill sections that bring you back into Saco. After that it’s a relatively flat and fast ride into T2.

Run
The run course is an out-and-back, giving athletes the chance to finish out the race on a flat and fast course that includes sweeping views of the Scarborough Marsh and over a portion of the storied Eastern Trail. Athletes will cross the finish line in downtown Old Orchard Beach.
