FIT Family Series @ Linwood Park Registration Alert

FIT Linwood ParkNEWEarly registration ends on July 16th at Midnight [GET REGISTERED NOW].

Linwood Park is located on the shores of Lake Erie in Vermilion, Ohio, “A small town on a great lake.”

Also known to mid-west boating enthusiasts as “A great place to drop Anchor.”

The Linwood Park Company was formed in 1883, by a group of Germans inspired by the Methodist Sunday School Assembly at Chautauqua, New York. Land was procured in Linwood Grove, a former picnic grove.

The first year twelve cottages were built, with the superintendent authorized to grant 99-year leases on the lots.

The summer of 1884 saw the completion of the Tabernacle, the Chapel, the superintendent’s house, and a horse shed. The first 4th of July celebration was held and the summer fun began with families and friends vacationing there ever since.

Now home to a few year-round residents, most cottages are still summer vacation homes; some are occasionally available for rent by owners. The Linwood Park Cottage Owners Association is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that supports the Park Company in its mission to “…purchase and hold land for the purpose of holding religious meetings on the same.”

This fantastic venue provides triathletes with spectacular swim courses along the spectacular Linwood Park beach. The Duathlete’s opening run is out and back featuring a run through the Lagoons and downtown Vermilion. The bike courses are demanding, featuring two Vermilion River gorge crossings. The race finishes with an out-and-back run through the Lagoons and downtown Vermilion with breathtaking shoreline views of Lake Erie for the entire course. This race is a must do for northern Ohio multisport athletes. More Information
