About This Activity

The Watermans Half has moved to the bucollic town of Rock Hall, MD.  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!) or 90 miles from Philadelphia, 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. There will be 3 water bottle hand-offs on the bike and a minimum of 1 aid station per mile on the run course.  The exact bike and run courses are still in progress and maps will be posted February 1.

AQUA BIKE Category is available for Men & Women!
