The Tidewater Triathlon is Eastern Virginia's newest triathlon.
Brought to you in partnership with the City of Hampton, Buckroe Beach, Phoebus, and Fort Monroe you will love this race.
Held in conjunction with the 400th anniversary of Hampton there will be lots of festivities for you and the family to enjoy after this race and over the course of the weekend. This event has changed to a single distance format to create a better racing experience for everyone.
There will be live music and a beer tent at the finish line and don't forget to tell your friends and family to sign up for the 5K race the night before. (more info on that coming).
