TIMING & RESULTS
Official chip timing will be handled by Charm City Run Events. Participants will receive accurate times for each segment of the race, including transitions, as well as ranking based on each segment.
WHAT DO I GET?
Each registrant will receive the following items:
A long-sleeve Under Armour technical race shirt available in gender-specific cuts.
Individual registrants will receive a colored swim cap with the Baltimore Triathlon logo that corresponds to their wave group. For relays, the swim leg will receive the swim cap. Participants must wear the provided swim cap during the race.
In addition to body marking, each participant will receive a helmet number, bike number, and bib number. The bib number is only required for the run portion, and must be worn on the front of the body and visible at all times.
All participants in the individual and relay races will receive a Baltimore Triathlon finisher’s medal upon completion of the race.
Post-Race Food & Drink
We have eliminated our traditional post-race pizza in accordance with our COVID-19 protocols, but we will have plenty of snacks and Gatorade to share when you finish!
Water temperatures at Hammerman Beach have historically hovered around 70 degrees at the end of September, and we expect that the race will be wetsuit legal. A final measurement will be taken the morning of the race, and results communicated to all athletes in transition prior to the race start.
Volunteers are critical to making an event fun, safe, and enjoyable for athletes and spectators. We have eliminated many volunteer positions and replaced them with Charm City Run staff to ensure a safe race experience. We hope you’ll consider volunteering with us in 2021!

Friday, October 2nd from 2-6 PM

The Baltimore Triathlon is a USA Triathlon Sanctioned event, and adheres to all USAT rules and procedures. A complete listing of USAT rules can be found on the USA Triathlon Website.
In the event of inclement weather or other unavoidable circumstances, The Baltimore Triathlon reserves the right to modify or cancel any portion of the race that is deemed unsafe for participants.
To ensure participant safety and minimize impact on the surrounding communities, the Baltimore Triathlon has established course cutoffs for the races in coordination with the Baltimore County Police Department. All cyclists MUST be off of the road by 10:00 AM. This gives sprint participants approximately 2 hours to complete the 750m swim, transition 1, and the 13.8 mile bike course (based on an 8:00 AM wave start).
Race officials reserve the right to pull any participant from the course who is not making satisfactory progress on the course, or is considered a danger to themselves or others.
