Horn Harbor Duathlon

This free club-sponsored event combines a 4.75 mile run and 0.85 mile open water swim, and is also known as “Beat The Jellies.”  It is timed strategically in June or early July – and open for anyone to participate:  before the jellyfish arrive in Chesapeake Bay making the swim portion no fun! This event starts & finishes at the Johnson’s house (272 Brush Neck Rd, Port Haywood) with the transition at Horn Harbor Marina.

Alas – if it wasn’t the jellyfish, it was the pandemic! We did not hold the Horn Harbor Duathlon in 2020 due to the Coronavirus health crisis. In addition to the timing around avoiding jellyfish, VTTR is adhering to the COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings and determined that we could not manage it safely this year.

2019 Date was Saturday, May 18th (not timed)
