Challenge Cedar Point
Next Race: 12-13 September 2015
Cedar Point amusement park/resort in Sandusky, Ohio, is one of the premier family vacation destinations in the world. Located on a peninsula along scenic Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio, Cedar Point is a 364-acre amusement park that is home to the most exhilarating collection of thrill rides and roller coasters on Earth. With 75 rides, including 17 roller coasters — more rides and more roller coasters than any park in the world — a huge outdoor waterpark (Soak City); four resort hotels including a year-round indoor waterpark resort (Castaway Bay); a luxury RV campground with cottages and cabins; two large marinas; outdoor activity complex featuring a skycoaster, go-karts, miniature golf and more (Challenge Park); award-winning live shows; gift shops; delicious eateries; four giant kids’ areas and lots more, it’s easy to understand why Cedar Point has been voted the “Best Amusement Park in the World”.
The 1.9km/3.8km swim will be held on the beautiful Lake Erie, with athletes entering the water inside the park from the beach of Hotel Breakers, which serves as the host hotel for the REV3 event and is located within 100 yards from the swim start.
The 90km/180km bike course starts from Cedar Point Amusement Park and follows the scenic causeway and the rural country roads of Erie County. Before returning back to the park to T2, the course has one short, steep climb (per loop) but mostly consists of flat and rolling terrain. Expect wind to be a factor.
The 21.1km/42.2km run will consist of a two loop course through downtown Sandusky on what is considered to be a generally flat run. The finish line will be positioned at Cedar Point and is sure to be one of the most spectacular finish line experiences around!
