This event is held annually in Snow Hill, MD at the end of September / early October and is one of the best environments I've ever been around. It is a small event, less than 200 entrants, and is the best event regionally for your very first triathlon event.
This was the 1st triathlon I ever raced and i had an amazing time and became hooked on the sport. The scenery is gorgeous and the volunteers and other racers are so welcoming. I came back this year with more experience and enjoyed the course even more.
