EVENT DRAWS MORE THAN 1000 ATHLETES TO MAKE TRIATHLON HISTORY
Lower Township, New Jersey (May 29, 2013) – DelMoSports Inc. announced the first ever Escape The Cape Triathlon and Aquabike is officially sold out, with over 1,000 athletes participating in the event on June 2nd.
Created by Stephen Del Monte, Founder/CEO of DelMoSports Inc., and sponsored by Equity Communications, the Escape the Cape Triathlon has proved to be very popular within the triathlon community. “The response has been tremendous and I’m fired up to get started,” Del Monte said. “It’s the only event of its kind along the East Coast. Where else can a triathlete jump off a ferry boat to begin a race?”
Active.com, the #1 event registration website in the world, recently named Del Monte Event Director of the Month due to the growth of DelMoSports, Inc. and the Atlantic City International Triathlon from 2011 to 2012.
The Delaware River and Bay Authority’s Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal in Lower Township, NJ will host this endurance event and more than 2,000 spectators are expected to line the race course, with the finish line on the Terminal’s boardwalk. In an exciting twist, the athletes will begin the event by leaping from the MV Twin Capes ferry vessel into the Delaware Bay and swimming ashore.
Beginning at 7:00 a.m., athletes will board the ferry vessel and journey out into the Delaware Bay where they will jump off into the waters to begin the race. The event will consist of three separate races taking place simultaneously. The Sprint Triathlon consists of a .35 mile swim, 10 mile bike, and 5k run. The International Triathlon will consist of a 1 mile swim, 20 mile bike, and 5 mile run, and the International Aquabike consisting of a 1 mile swim and 20 mile bike only.
