Rev3 Cedar Point
Sept. 8, 2013
Make this one a family vacation – in addition to racing in and around the Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, Rev3 offers a “Little Rev” family adventure race and “Kids Rev” triathlon the day before the 140.6 mile “Full Rev.” Participants especially appreciate the family-friendly environment at the finish line, where kids, grandparents – even dogs! – are allowed to share in the experience of running through the finisher’s chute.
Brandon Henneman enjoyed his Cedar Point experience: “ The diversity of going from lakeshore and resorts, to back roads and cornfields, to a historic downtown throughout the day was great. The course has PR potential, but just enough turns and elevation to keep things interesting.”
Though the bike course has no steep climbs, lengthy false flats are present, which can wear athletes down towards the end of their ride. Once off the bike, athletes follow a flat, 2-loop run course along Lake Erie and through downtown Sandusky.
Typically, September in Ohio brings great weather, with an average temperature of 73 degrees – perfect for the event and a few post-race loops on Cedar Point’s many roller coasters.
