The Rock Hall Sprint Triathlon is nestled on the edge of the Eastern Shore of Maryland in picturesque Kent County. Only 18 miles from Baltimore “as the fish swims” (put your bike rack on a boat!) and 90 miles from Philadelphia, Rock Hall is one of the friendliest, most laid back towns anywhere…and is full of history. George Washington took the Annapolis Ferry to Rock Hall nearly ten times before heading to Philly on horseback to work out America’s Independence! The swim takes place in Rock Hall Harbor on the Chesapeake Bay, protecting athletes from any serious wind or chop. The bike course is a triathlete’s dream. Wide open ribbons of pavement with wide shoulders throughout most of the course take athletes though a huge expanse of countryside – this course is truly pancake flat! The one loop run course is also pancake flat and takes athletes through the quaint neighborhoods and sideroads of Rock Hall, MD.
This event benefits the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The Rock Hall Sprint Triathlon is proud to support the groups that support us. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is a watershed protection agency that fights to keep the water we swim in clean. Please consider making a donation to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation during the registration process.
Cut Off Time: 2.5 Hours
Athletes must be done with the bike 2 hours after the last wave goes off or the last swimmer enters the water. This gives athletes 30 minutes to complete the run course. Those not completing the bike within this time frame will not be allowed to continue the race.
Race management and medical personnel reserve the right to pull any athlete from the course if it appears that they are not sufficiently trained to complete the remainder of the course in the allotted time and in a safe manner.
