Challenge Cedar Point... Something for everyone

Rev3/Challenge Cedar Point has been a favorite of mine since 2011.. long before I made the Rev3 team in 2014. It is a race where there is literally something for everyone.
We are Triathlon!

Pick a Race... any race!! (or 2?)  There literally is a race distance for everyone -  From the 1 mile fun run to a full distance triathlon 140.6... the entire family can get involved.. and still can have fun even if they don't want to race!
    • Saturday - Kids Tri (7-14) - Two different distances depending on age
    • Saturday - Sprint Tri (800 M Swim, 12 mile bike, 5K run) Can be done as an individual or relay.. your pick!
    • Sunday - Half Distance Tri (1.2M Swim, 56 M bike, 13.1M Run) - Can be done as individual or relay
    • Sunday - Full Distance Tri (2.4M Swim, 112 M bike, 26.2M Run) - Can be done as individual or relay
    • Sunday - Full or Half Distance Aquabike -  Love to swim and bike but hate to run... or injured?   No Prob.  Do the Swim.Bike.Done option!  
    • Sunday Night- Rev3 Glow Run. Sunday, 8 pm 1 or 3 mile fun runs-
      Non timed fun run where you can get your glow on!
      Straight from the website: "At the pre-run dance party we will be handing out awards for whoever catches our eye. Make sure you are the brightest, have most creative use of glow sticks, or best costume, and you may get a prize flying your way." I have done a few glow runs with my family and had a blast! Great way to shake out the legs after driving and get the whole family involved. With them changing the time to Sunday night, families waiting for the full distance athletes have something to do after the park closes AND athletes already done can either run/jog/walk with their families OR cheer on their supporters as they take on their own run!
We have met up with my parents every year and have loved it each time.  My parents have enjoyed being spectators and also the Challenge Park. Staying right on site (at Hotel Breakers) also made it super easy for everyone to enjoy the weekend as they wish.  Read my Cedar Point Pointers as I outline a lot in that older post.  The only major thing to change from this is that Hotel Breakers has been completely renovated.  No more "gives off a Shining Vibe" section of the hotel (I.e. Bon Air section)...   which was where we stayed every time.   The hotel had a complete makeover so excited to see it at it's best.

See you all in 2 weeks.  Still time to sign up!
