Welcome to the official site of the 8th Annual Hagerstown Sprint Triathlon. Please see our Youth Races and Running pages for details on the 7th Annual Youth Triathlon and the Hagerstown 5K Run #2 held on the same weekend as this race.
This race sells out each year so act quickly!
This Sprint distance Triathlon will start and end at Halfway Park in Hagerstown, MD.....just 25 minutes from Frederick, MD and 90 minutes from Baltimore and DC. This is a great course for the beginner or the experienced triathlete who wants to go fast! We will host the Hagerstown Youth Triathlon and Hagerstown 5K Run #2 during this weekend. See those pages for details.
Race Limit: 450 participants
Start: We will start the Open/Elite Division first (limited to12 men and12 women). The age group and relay athletes will follow the Open/Elite waves.
Swim Course: The swim is in a 25 meter pool which is only 4 feet deep. Swimmers will complete 12 lengths (6 laps). Open/Elite Division will swim in their own lane and stay to the same side of their lane the entire swim. The age group and relay athletes will begin one at a time every 10 seconds swimming down and back in each lane before changing lanes. A simple rule of thumb here is that all lane changes are made at the same side of the pool where you begin. See the swim format HERE
Bike Course: The bike course is a loop on public roads. The course is slightly rolling with no major climbs and has wide shoulders for most of the loop.
Run Course: The run is entirely in the park using the path and park road. We are redesigning the course this year to do an out and back.
Transition Area: There is only one transition area for this event.
Timing: This event will be chip timed! We will be providing race day results immediately following your event at our results kiosk.
