As final preparations continue for the first-ever SOS race on Cape Cod, all of us at New England Endurance Events are working hard to make this event as great as it possibly can be. And we already know that nothing makes a triathlon more successful than the enthusiasm and hard work provided by its volunteers!

With that in mind, we welcome everyone who wishes to be part of something special to join us as a volunteer on June 22. And if you’re a triathlete, we’d like to reward you by placing your name on a special list to receive an early entry opportunity into the 2020 event — at a $50 discount!

What is the SOS? It all started 25 years ago with an unusual triathlon held in New York State which has grown to become one of the iconic races of the sport. Unlike most other triathlons, the first leg is a bike ride, followed by a combination of running and swimming legs in the hills and lakes of the region.

On Cape Cod, a bike will also be the first leg (27 miles) followed by 9 miles of trail running and 1.25 miles of swimming across three of the Cape’s fresh-water kettle ponds. 2019 is the first time an cycling, running or swimming race of any kind will be allowed inside the highlands and backcountry of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Want to be part of all this? Email Stephanie Goley (stephanie@neeevents.com) and offer your services for Saturday, June 22. You’ll receive a shirt and swag as well as a post-event luncheon at a historic inn near the finish line in Wellfleet. And, you’ll be eligible to register early for next year’s race!

In partnership with the acclaimed SOS Triathlon®, held annually for 35 years along New York’s Shawangunk Mountain Range, New England Endurance Events is pleased to present SOS Cape Cod. For the first time ever, an athletic competition has been allowed to enter the fragile and scenic lands of the Cape Cod National Seashore. A slightly shorter course than the SOS New York event, triathletes will bike, then run and swim on a 38-mile point-to-point route leading to a finish in the quintessential coastal village of Wellfleet. Ten of the top overall/age group winners will be eligible to compete at the SOS Championships in New Paltz, New York on September 8.
