About Us

Whether you're new to the SOS Triathlon or have been part of the SOS community for years, we welcome you!

Here, you'll find training gear such as tri suits, tri shirts and bike jerseys, as well as fashion items, Survivor wear and souvenirs. Shop for yourself, training partners and loved ones.  

The Survival of the Shawangunks (SOS) is an eight stage triathlon held in New Paltz, NY every September since the late 1980s. Consistently ranked among the best adventure triathlons in the world, and among the most scenic, the SOS has become so popular the event sells out in minutes. Fewer than 200 athletes get to compete each year on the scenic highways circling the northern ridge of the Shawangunk Mountain Range and through Minnewaska State Park for a combination run/swim journey through some of America's most beautiful cross-country trails and spring fed lakes. In 2015, we'll be running our 30th SOS Triathlon. 

This SOS Triathlon shop is dedicated to the athletes, volunteers, family members and community members who come out each year to support the race and the spirit of the race. We'd like you to be able to remember your Shawangunk Moments by wearing your SOS gear proudly. From T-shirts, beer glasses and bumper stickers to performance tri suits, tri shirts and Headsweats visors, we've got the SOS merchandise for you. 

Until now, we've only been able to keep the SOS shop open during the SOS pre-race dinner and post-race banquet, but thanks to technology, we're now open year-round. You can shop at your convenience and we'll ship the order to you. Consider purchasing SOS gear as holiday and birthday gifts. Share the link with friends and family members. 

Let us know if there's anything you'd like to see offered in the store. 

We welcome your feedback.
