Everybody is from Cincinnati. Whether you grew up in Cincinnati, have family here or make Cincinnati your home, this is your home town. Come home to Cincinnati for the Cincinnati Triathlon on July 22, 2012.
Join athletes from Ohio, Kentucky and 30 other states on what has been called one of the most spectacular courses in all of triathlon.
Start with a downhill swim in the Ohio River. Downhill? The Cincinnati Triathlon swim is point to point, starting upstream and going with the current for 1350 meters. The entire swim is within 50 meters of the Ohio shoreline. Want a shorter swim? The sprint swim is also downhill, a mere 400 meters and is within 10 meters of the Serpentine Wall (your family and friends can walk along the wall with you as you swim - how much fun is that?).
After the swim is one of triathlon's most unusual bike courses. How is that? NO CARS! Our course is completely closed to traffic, including all six lanes of Columbia Parkway. The bike course has spectacular views of the Ohio River, the Kentucky shoreline and the downtown shoreline.
Finally the run. Breath a sigh of relief as most of the Cincinnati Triathlon's run is on shaded paths along the banks of the Ohio River in Friendship Park. Even more fun is a run across the Purple People Bridge, Cincinnati's world famous pedestrian bridge spanning the Ohio River.
Swim in, bike along and run over the Ohio River in Downtown Cincinnati Ohio at the Cincinnati Triathlon on July 22, 2012.
