About This Activity

Welcome to the inaugural running of the Crisfield Triathlon! The first of many years for the olympic distance triathlon/duathlon event. The sleepy little crab area of Crisfield, MD has opened their town for us to take in all of their wonderful scenic views and spectacular waterways. The race headquarters and transition area will be staged at the ???? Marina. The race(s) will consist of olympic distance diciplines; 1500 meter swim (.93 miles) (5K run for duathlon), 40 kilometer bike (24.8 miles), and 10 kilometer run (6.2 miles). The main features for this event are an exciting Barge start where all swimmers will be ferried out into Daugherty Creek to a barge waiting for athletes to board and start their race venture. Athletes will dive off the barge into Daugherty Creek swimming their way into Somers Cove up to the docs of Somers Cove Marina. The transition is another cool feature to Crisfield Crabman, it's located right off the marina into the towns festival outdoor arena with grandstand seating for all family, friends and spectators can watch all the excitement. From this point the bike and run legs of the race will cut through the gorgeous small town of Crisfield, MD out to the scenic views of Somerset County. Then to top off the entire race all athletes will be treated to a great old fashion Maryland style crabfeast where family members and friends are welcome to join! Let's make this first year a memorable one!!
