The Rock Hall Olympic 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!), 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. Athletes will be surrounded by sailboats as they make their way around a giant sandbar in the middle of the harbor. 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 99% pancake flat! The run course is 100% pancake flat and takes athletes through the quaint neighborhoods and side roads of Rock Hall, MD. The Olympic Distance run course is 2 loops, the Sprint run course is one loop.
This event features a Tri-Blend Crew Style T-shirts, Custom Race Socks, Finisher’s Medals, Professional DJ, Bounce House and a post race meal.
AQUA BIKE Category is available for Men & Women! To register for the Aqua Bike category you will find it as a category of the Triathlon!
