Rev3 Maine

Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013 – Old Orchard Beach, Maine
1.5K swim, 40K bike, 10K run//1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike, 13.1-mile run

Offering both Olympic and half-iron-distance races, the Rev3 Maine course features a wetsuit-legal, cool ocean swim and shaded, scenic bike and run courses through mostly residential areas. Much of the run for the half-iron race is an out-and-back on the Eastern Trail. Last year, the event drew 1,200 athletes for the inaugural race. To top it off, you can upgrade your post-race meal to a lobster bake. Pros will be racing the Olympic-distance race for their share of a $50,000 prize purse and points in the overall Rev3 Series rankings, while age-groupers will be racing both distances.

Pro Race
In the men’s race, there are several top athletes who could vie for the title, including American Eric Limkemann, who won Rev3 Williamsburg this year; David Thompson (USA); Ben Collins (USA); Kyle Leto (USA); Chris Foster (USA); and Leon Griffin (AUS).

In the women’s race, defending champion Lauren Goss (USA) is the favorite, as she’s also won Rev3 Knoxville and the Olympic-distance Rev3 Wisconsin just a few weeks ago. She’s familiar with this course and is best at this distance. There are several top women who could challenge her for the title, including Laurel and Rebeccah Wassner (USA), both Olympic-distance non-draft specialists; Caitlin Snow (USA), who’s used her run speed for top-10 finishes in Kona; and Magali Tisseyre (CAN), a top 70.3 athlete. Other podium contenders include Jenna Parker (USA), Jennifer Speildenner (USA), Radka Vodickova (CZE) and Tenille Hoogland (CAN).
