Rock Hall Triathlon
Year after year, athletes take the trip to Maryland to participate in the Rock Hall Triathlon. The triathlon runs along the edge of the Eastern Shore of Maryland in coastal Kent County, and the swim takes place in Rock Hall Harbor on the Chesapeake Bay. The harbor’s landscaping is ideal for the race because it protects athletes from wind and choppy waters. The bike course is scenic and rural, providing wide shoulders throughout most of the course. Athletes will be happy to know that the running course is pancake flat! You’ll enjoy running through nautical-themed neighborhoods and side roads of Rock Hall. Be sure to check the official website for specific dates.
Fun for Everyone
Attending these triathlons are a blast for everyone! There’s a live DJ spinning jams and a bounce house for the kiddos. Athletes and their supporters can enjoy the rest of their day by shopping the vendors and getting something to eat.
