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.
This event benefits the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
The Rock Hall 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.

It will be posted on this webpage and our MTS Facebook page, but expect a wetsuit-legal swim (78 degrees or less).
