The SOS is an eight stage triathlon held in New Paltz, NY every September. Consistently ranked among the best adventure triathlons in the world, and among the most scenic, the SOS has become so popular the event may sell out very quickly.
For safety reasons, it is required that athletes meet our qualification standards by completing at least a 70.3 distance triathlon within 7 hrs or less. You have until September 2024 to qualify, however, if you're not confident that you can meet this requirement, it's not recommended that you register at this time. We do not allow deferrals or refunds. For more info on this, please visit our website.
Fewer than 350 athletes get to compete each year on the scenic highways circling the northern ridge of the Shawangunk Mountain Range and through Minnewaska State Park for a combination run/swim journey through some of America's most beautiful cross-country trails and spring fed lakes.
