Midwest Regional High School Triathlon Championship

June 28, 2020 at Cowan Lake State Park in Wilmington, Ohio

Along with the Red, White & Zoom Triathlon Festival

Considered a hidden gem of the Ohio Parks, Cowan Lake State Park offers a unique challenge to racers, to tackle hills and flats on this scenic course. The Midwest Regional High School Triathlon Championships features a Sprint triathlon designed for high school students to challenge each other for regional supremacy. High School students from around the region will compete alongside other racers to the best individual and team in the region. Everyone can celebrate their accomplishment with a cool finisher medal and lifestyle tee (in men's and women's cut), and party after the event with music, pizza, beer (we also have soda and water), family and friends! This is more than just a race, it's an experience!

    • Scoring Points: All team scoring will be determined by comparing racers against only their same gender competitors; females will be scored by how they race against other females and males against males. When the team scores are determined, the first male and first female to cross the finish line receive 1 point for their team score, the second male racer and female racer to cross the finish line receives 2 points for their team score and so on. The lowest team score wins. In the case of a tie, the fastest combined team time based on the total time of all the racers will determine the winner.
