The Rock Hall 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. 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 run course is also pancake flat and takes athletes through the quaint neighborhoods and sideroads of Rock Hall, MD. The International Distance run course is 2 loops, the Sprint run course is one loop.
