S.O.S. Survival of the Shawangunks

249 Libertyville Rd, New Paltz, NY 12561, USA


This event is now sold out. We do have a few other opportunities to get into SOS 2020. We'll be taking 5 female and 5 male finishers from SOS Cape Cod, as well as SOS Curacao. We'll be rolling down from the top finishers in both of those events. There are also charity spots reserved for those who wish to support the Mohonk Preserve. Please see our website for details.

The 35th annual SOS Triathlon is an epic adventure, consistently ranked as one of the best endurance races in the sport of Triathlon.

Starting with a 30 mile bike and 2,000 foot incline in altitude, the athletes move on to four running segments, separated by three glacial lake swims. The athletes will swim with their running gear, and run with their swimming gear, as each segment is point to point. The four running segments add up to almost 19 miles of running with legendary hills. This is an extremely challenging event.

The SOS athlete must qualify, within 18 months of the event. An athlete who hasn't yet completed a qualifying event in the required time may still register, but will need to submit their race results for a qualifying event before the date of SOS Triathlon in September. If you're not sure if you can qualify, it's not advisable to register for the SOS Triathlon at this time.

While events.com will offer an independent race insurance option (fanshield), we have a no refund, no rollover, and no deferral policy.
