Tri-Lazy Information

Printer-Friendly Version HERE.


The Tri-Lazy is a relatively short distance bike, paddle and run event perfect for the person who has always wanted to do a tri-event race. The 13.5 mile bike, 1 mile paddle and 5K run will provide a challenge for people of all skill levels. You can even team up with a partner: one person bikes, both canoe, and one person runs!

The Tri-Lazy is sponsored by the Fall River Pirate Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Fall River community.  The Pirate Foundation’s current initiative is to help build and support a much-needed athletic complex. All the proceeds from the Tri-Lazy will go toward supporting the construction of the athletic complex. As well, it will be a fun way to show off your community pride!

Course Information

The race will begin with the 13.5 mile bike ride starting at the Fall River dam. The bike course travels through the countryside with hills, twists and turns and will end back at the dam.

The participants will then paddle 1 mile on Lazy Lake. The paddle course starts at the Fall River dam boat landing, travels in a loop through the bay area and ends back at the dam. Life jackets are required! You can rent a canoe/kayaks package which includes life jackets and ores when you register for the race. If you bring your own canoe/kayak, you will need to provide your own life jacket and ores.

The 3.1 mile run begins at the dam and travels out and back to the finish line. You will run right past the site of the future athletic complex!
