About This Activity

Think you can only find triathlons outside major cities? Think again...and then register for the Druid Hill Sprint triathlon! Druid Hill Park is located in the heart of Baltimore, and shares distinction with New York's Central Park as one of the oldest landscaped public parks in the United States. The 300 yard serpentine swim takes place in the newly renovated outdoor pool. The bike course will feature some rolling hills, both within the park and along some of the surrounding roads in the "Monumental City." Exit T2 for a picturesque 5K run along shaded footpaths and sidewalks. Channel your "inner Braveheart" when you pass the 40 foot statue of Sir William Wallace (blue face paint and kilt are optional)! And those animal sounds you hear aren't just your fellow competitors....the Maryland Zoo, which opened in 1876 and is the third oldest zoological park in the U.S., is located in Druid Hill. Rich in history, Baltimore's battle during the War of 1812 inspired Francis Scott Key to pen "The Star Spangled Banner"......you will be inspired too when you hear our National Anthem before the start of your race!
