Ocean Pines Aquatics’ popular Super Sprint Tri will return to the Sports Core Pool on Saturday, Sept. 16 beginning at 7 a.m.
The fun triathlon event includes a half-mile swim, a 15-mile bike ride and a 5K run. Twelve three-person teams will compete; each team member will complete one portion of the race before the next team member begins.
Registration and check-in will begin at 7 a.m.; the event will start at 7:30 a.m. All portions of the race will take place at the Sports Core Pool, located at 11144 Cathell Road in Ocean Pines, and the surrounding area.
The cost is $105 per team. A $35 deposit is required to hold the team’s spot with the balance due prior to the event day. Registered team members may also train at the Sports Core Pool for a reduced rate of $4 a visit through Sept. 15.
The event is limited to 12 teams. Each team participant will receive a long-sleeved “finisher” shirt, and food and drinks will be provided.
Teams must be registered by Thursday, Sept. 7. Registrations will be accepted in person at the Sports Core Pool or by calling 410-641-5255.
A team representative meeting will be held on Monday, Sept. 11 at 6 p.m. at the Sports Core Pool. Instructions and a course description will be given at that time.
