Welcome to the 2020 Eastern Shore Triathlon Series. This series, produced by TCR Event Management in St Michaels, MD, is a collection of Sprint Distance USA Triathlon certified courses, showing off various locales on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
So why a series? We want to show off all that the Eastern Shore has to offer and we want to give you the ability to choose races at a discounted rate. Though there are four (4) races in the series right now, we are hoping to add on another one or two, before the beginning of the year.
The current series bundling works like this. Go to any of the registration sites below and you will find an option for the Series Registration. You only need to register for 3 of the 4 events to be qualified for the Championship Standings at the end of the season, but you will have an option to register for all 4. (Should we add more races to the series, you will be offered a unique coupon code that will allow you to register at a much lower price).
By registering for the series, you are given 15% off each race, and just registering for one AUTOMATICALLY registers you for the other events too. Your shirt size, question answers, etc, will all go right over to the other race, so we make it easy for you!! TO REGISTER FOR THE SERIES, YOU MUST BE AN ANNUAL USA TRIATHLON MEMBER, WHOSE MEMBERSHIP IS GOOD THROUGH OCTOBER 17TH.
So what races are a part of the series?
Current races in 2020 include:
Crisfield Triathlon – Sunday, May 31st, 2020
The Crisield Triathlon certainly made a splash on the scene with its launch in 2019. With a beautiful start in the historic town of Crisfield, the course was a flat and fast journey through Somerset county. Participants were treated to complimentary beer and Crab Cakes at the conclusion of the event, and many stuck around to sample the small town charm on Crisfield.

Pocomoke Triathlon – Saturday, June 27th, 2020
TCR Event Management took over the Pocomoke Triathlon in 2019 and changed the entire run course, to rave reviews!!! Now the entire run is on the Lower Shore Family YMCA’s grounds, making it a safer, and more scenic run. With a two loop course around the ponds on grounds, and on a mix of dirt and paved trail, runners delighted to have spectators be able to be on the grounds and cheer!
BBQ and beer welcomed all of the finishers in 2019, and we hope to have an even bigger after party this year! Many families made a day out of it and travelled north from the venue to spend the rest of the afternoon in Ocean City, Maryland.

Back Bay Triathlon – Sunday, Sept 27th, 2020
A reboot of the former Osprey Triathlon, TCR Event Management took over production of the Maryland Coastal Bay’s sprint triathlon. Bringing more equipment, support, and USA Triathlon sanctioning, this event was not part of the series in 2019, but we are happy to bring it on board for 2020!!
The breathtaking sunrises and point-to-point swim are outstanding, and the support of local organizations, looking to preserve our waterways, is well worth the trip to beautiful Snow Hill, Maryland.
