Cedar Point to Host 2010 Triathlon

Looking to get your fitness on at Cedar Point in 2010? Well here's your perfect opportunity! Revolution3 Triathlon Series and Cedar Point have announced that they will hold both full and half Ironman length triathlons at Cedar Point and the surrounding towns next September.

For those unfamiliar, a triathlon consists of swimming, running, and biking sections and would probably kill someone like me if I tried it! If you chose to partake in the full event, you'll be swimming 2.4 miles, biking for 112, and wrapping things up with two trips around a 13.1 mile course. Ack!

Reports put total prize money at $150,000, and that's certainly not a small figure! The Point hopes to plan a series of events at the park prior to the race including possible night ride sessions for athletes and their guests. If all goes well the event will reach the finish line at the park which will making for some exciting times for park visitors as well.

The event is set for September 12th, 2010 and more can be found on Revolution3's official website.
