The 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.
“We are thrilled to be the host venue for REVOLUTION3 Triathlon’s full distance race. REV3’s goal is to provide their racers with the ultimate race experience and to hold their event at a venue that is fun for the entire family and there is possibly no place better to accomplish those goals than at Cedar Point.”
– Bryan Edwards, Sales promotion manager for Cedar Point
