A stop on the Ohio Triathlon Series, this unique race offers triathlons, duathlons, aquabikes (swim bike only) and aquathlons (swim run only), in distances for all ages and abilities including beginner, sprint, olympic and 1/3 iron. There is a race for all ages and abilities.

This is more than just a race, it's an experience! Co-hosted by the Miami University Triathlon & Duathlon team, our event is also a Mideast Collegiate Triathlon Conference event where collegiate triathlon teams complete school pride and conference points. Plus join the best high school triathletes in the region as they compete for team and individual honors at the Mideast High School Regional Sprint Triathlon Championships. We will see you there!

2021 Race Update: January 20th


The Ohio State Parks, where our races are hosted, have indicated that they will not approve any permits until May of 2021. We are opening registration in the hopes that our August event will be approved for live in-person racing. In the event that this event is not approved, all athletes will be moved to a virtual race, and we will mail your event swag to you. Athletes will be able to submit results virtually, and we will post them. Registration for this event will remain open through race day, so you are welcome to wait to register if you prefer.  Thank you,
