The Maritime International Triathlon is located in picturesque Talbot County, sometimes referred to as "the Hamptons of the Chesapeake Bay." Talbot County is in the heart of Maryland's beautiful Eastern Shore and is a jumping off point for all that the region has to offer. The Maritime Tri starts and finishes on the scenic grounds of the Calhoon M.E.B.A Engineering School, located in Easton, and just six miles from the shops and restaurants of historic St. Michaels. This one-of-a-kind maritime engineering school operated by the Marine Engineers Benefit Association boasts an over 650-acre campus, including a 10-acre parcel dedicated to the Merchant Marine Memorial. A one-loop 1500 meter swim takes place in the calm Miles River. Once out of the water, athletes will run past the historic Manor House into the transition area, and then ride a fast and flat 24 mile bike course through the pleasant rural areas of Easton and past the Easton Municipal Airport. After turning around at the entrance to beautiful Courtland Farm, athletes return to TA for a fast out and back 10k run.
AQUA BIKE Category is available for Men & Women!
This event benefits the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and The MEBA Merchant Marine Memorial Foundation.
The Maritime Triathlon is proud to support the groups that support us. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is a watershed protection agency that fights to keep the water we swim in clean. The MEBA Merchant Marine Memorial Foundation honors all Merchant Mariners who have paid the ultimate price. Please consider making a donation to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation or the MEBA Merchant Marine Memorial Foundation during the registration process.
