The fifth stop of the FIT Family Series goes due North to Vermilion, Ohio along the shoreline of Lake Erie at Sherod Park. This unique venue gives triathletes a testing swim in the cold waters of Lake Erie, followed by beautiful country roads for the bike courses and finishing with a run through historic downtown Vermilion showcasing why Vermilion is nicknamed Harbour Town.
Online registration opens on January 1, 2021 at Midnight.
