There is a kidz specific course clinic at 2:00pm that ALL kidz are required to attend. There will also be an adult course clinic during this time.

This weekends season opening FIT Family Series at Deer Creek State Park looks to have some great weather for this series opener. We have Great fun and Great racing scheduled for two days on June 6-7.  Online registration closes on Friday, June 6th at Midnight.Located in the heart of Ohio’s agricultural country, Deer Creek State Park is one of central Ohio’s vacation showplaces. A collage of meadows and woodlands surround the scenic reservoir. This 2,337-acre resort park features a modern lodge, cottages, campground, golf course, swimming beach and boating for outdoor enthusiasts.This venue offers courses that are mostly flat and fast with some rolling hills on the bike.FIT-Series-DC-KidsTriathletes will be swimming along the beach in Deer Creek Lake. Duathletes opening run is out and back featuring a run across the Deer Creek dam levy. So, don’t forget your cross country legs. The bike courses are on mostly local country roads. The races finish with an out and back run that crosses the Deer Creek dam levy and heads onto a local country road. The run course is almost completely flat but does require extra effort when crossing the grass-covered levy. This race is a perfect “first race of the season” to get you ready for an exciting season of racing.
