Ya Gotta Tri
NO SAILING EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of Baltimore’s only endurance event that gives you the chance to see the city by land AND by sea! Forget the swim though — let’s sail or kayak in addition to the bike and run legs! This will not be a timed event – it is purely for fun and there will be a participation-based poker-style competition for awards.
Come on out to help the DSC raise money to support our Youth Outreach and Accessible Sailing programs! We’re seeking people of all ages and abilities to join in on the fun. You don’t need to be an experienced sailor, paddler, cyclist or runner, and you don’t need to be a member of the DSC either! This is a family-friendly event and we hope you’ll join us! You can sign up to do the whole race OR you can organize a relay team.
*The DSC will provide access dinghy sailboats, kayaks/paddles and life jackets for the event. Participants may choose whether they prefer to sail or kayak – and volunteers will be on-hand to help participants board boats and answer questions.
The three race legs are as follows:
4 mile bike ride through Fort McHenry (helmet required – you must bring your own)
2.4 mile run/walk to the Inner Harbor
Around-the-buoy sail or kayak (life jackets MUST be worn by all participants – DSC will provide life jackets)
Schedule of events:
7:30 a.m. Registration
8:00 a.m. Race Start
Upon finishing, join the After Party under the DSC Pavilion
10:30 a.m. Presentation of Awards
There will also be a silent auction held in coordination with this event –
Poker-Style Competition: Slow and steady wins the race. Collect 2 playing cards after completing each leg of the race.
Cross the finish line and discard one card of your choosing.
The finishers with the best poker hand are the winners!
