Club Sponsored Events
Mathews Outdoor Club (MOC) merged with a local running club in 2021 and inherited some long standing competitive events and we’ve added some new ones to the calendar. Check the MOC calendar for these and other area events to broaden your outdoor experiences.
Mathews Micro Tri Series
Summer (Jun-Aug). A series of triathlons scheduled monthly during the summer. Races are structured in the traditional triathlon sequence (swim, bike, run) in shorter distances for each leg. Ideal for experienced triathletes to practice transitions and for first timers and novices.
Last Weekend in June. This race is scheduled in conjunction with the annual Gwynn’s Island Festival. The race has evolved over the past few years: the 2021 event will include options for running, biking or a combined bike/run duathlon.
Labor Day Monday, September. This annual event is free and open to any/all participants. Starting and finishing at Put In Creek park in Historic Mathew Courthouse, participants run 3 miles to Williams Wharf and paddle 2.5 miles back to town.
October. 2021 is the inaugural year for the Mathews Marathon & Half Marathon. Details on race routes, registration, volunteering and sponsorships are available on the event page. There is a (combined) limit of 200 participants for these races.
