Race Reboots & Welcome Home!

The Cincinnati Triathlon & Multisport Festival is a reboot of the Red, White, and Zoom Triathlon and the Zoom Triathlon Race Series. Due to the steady growth of those races, we had to move from Cowan Lake to Caesar Creek State Park so we could accommodate more racers! As COVID-19 impacted the racing industry, it was time to refresh our racing calendar and bring back a park from our past. Zoom Multisport began its racing career 10 years ago with a 3 race series at Caesar Creek State Park. 10 year later we are returning home to our roots! Please join us for a race with a new name, but with the same old Zoom Multisport feel (and some COVID-19 protocols). We are looking forward to racing again at Caesar Creek State Park!  


  • There is a race for everyone from Beginner to Ironman!
  • Post race food catered by Lil' Zoom's Kitchen with BBQ, Hotdogs, Beans, Beer, Soda, Water and More!
  • Professional In Race Pictures!
  • Men's & Women's Cut Lifestyle Tee!
