Welcome to the ChesapeakeMan Endurance Festival to
benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic, granting wishes for
children with life-threatening medical conditions in Maryland, Delaware,
Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.
The ChesapeakeMan Endurance Festival includes seven top shelf
events for all skill levels.
This event has been named a “140.6 Best Race,”
in Triathlete Magazine’s March, 2010 edition, and is the USAT Mid-Atlantic
Regional Championship event. Come experience 140.6 miles of Maryland
Eastern Shore hospitality as featured in James Michener's book
"Chesapeake". CheseapeakeMan uses much of the world-renowned Ironman
70.3 EagleMan venue. Start your day with a 2.4-mile Swim in the protected
Hambrooks Bay section of the Choptank River in Great Marsh Park. Then follow
with a two loop cycling experience through the flat and windy Blackwater
National Wildlife Refuge. The run is a three loop fast and flat course with a finish at Cambridge - South Dorchester High
School. Join us for the Champions Brunch & Awards at the Hyatt Regency on
in challenging yourself but don't want to run the marathon? Then the Aquabike
is for you! The Aquabike encompasses the 2.4-mile Swim in Hambrooks Bay and the
112 miles of cycling through the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. The race
finishes at the transition area where the full distance ChesapeakeMan competitors
will continue on with the run.
Skipjack Triathlon will begin with one loop of the 1.2 mile ChesapeakeMan swim
course in Hambrooks Bay. After a quick transition (skipping the changing tent)
and saddling up for the 64-mile first loop of the ChesapeakeMan bike course,
there will be an out and back 10-mile run. The Skipjack Triathlon is the
perfect event to end your season or to use as training for a long distance event.
Bugeye Classic Triathlon is an Intermediate distance race consisting of a 1.2
mile swim on the ChesapeakeMan Hambrooks Bay swim course, a 25 mile bike
through portions of the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge and a 6.2 mile flat run.
This race is for those who want to brave the waters for 2.4 miles and then join
the spectators to cheer on the other racers. The swim start is at the same time
as the Ultra Distance and Aquabike events.
