The RJA Memorial Mighty Montauk Triathlon

Established in 1982 by the late Robert J. Aaron, the RJA Memorial Mighty Montauk Triathlon consists of a one-mile swim, a 22-mile bike ride, and a 6.2-mile run. The swimming section is held at Lake Montauk, a calm salt-water lake that averages a chilly 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Taking a number of historic roads, the biking section covers some hilly ground and offers a bird’s-eye view of the famous Montauk Lighthouse. The running section is also largely up-and-down but passes some exceptionally beautiful scenic vistas.

The RJA Memorial Mighty Montauk Triathlon is officially sanctioned by USA Triathlon. It benefits a number of local and national civic and charity organizations such as the Montauk Ambulance Squad and the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
