Escape the Cape Triathlon Going Strong into Its 11th Year

15,000 athletes have jumped off the Ferry


On June 2, 2024, 2,000 athletes will descend to Lower Township, NJ to test their mettle and resilience as they literally leap into the 11th Annual DeSatnick Real Estate Escape the Cape Triathlon Presented by Inspira Health.

The Delaware River and Bay Authority’s Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal in Lower Township, NJ will once again host this unique endurance event, created by DelMoSports.  Thousands of spectators will line the race course, from the starting point at the Ferry to the finish line on the Terminal’s boardwalk.  From the incredible start, with the athletes leaping 12 feet from the MV Delaware Ferry vessel into the Delaware Bay and swimming ashore, to the gorgeous, closed road bike course through vineyards and beautiful back roads, and on the run along the bay to the Ferry finish line, Escape the Cape is truly unlike any other multisport event.  Escape the Cape offers two race distances: the Sprint Triathlon: .35-mile swim, 12.5-mile bike, and 5K run; and the Olympic Triathlon: 1 mile swim, 25-mile bike, and 5-mile run.
