About the Rock Hall Triathlon 2020 

This year’s triathlon is scheduled for May 30 – 31, 2020 in beautiful Rock Hall, MD. The swim takes place in the Rock Hall Harbor in the Chesapeake Bay, protecting competitors from choppy and windy conditions. Next, athletes will take to the bike course, which winds along the rural countryside and offers wide shoulders throughout. Finally, the race commences with a flat run through the charming neighborhoods of Rock Hall. After you cross the finish line, celebrate with a delicious post-race spread and DJ-spun music. All participants will also receive a commemorative T-shirt, custom race socks, and a Rock Hall-themed Finisher’s Medal.
