CSE Stops Producing Two Maryland Triathlons

CSE No Longer Produces Two Maryland Triathlons

We regretfully announce that Corrigan Sports Enterprises will no longer produce both of its local triathlons- the 2018 Columbia Triathlon and the Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon – due to a decline in participation.

Every athlete who already registered for the 2018 Columbia Triathlon has been notified and informed that they will receive a complete refund within 30 days.

The yearly downward trend in participation led us to make this difficult decision. We feel it is in the triathletes’ best interest to make this definitive decision early so you can adjust your schedules and training. Again, we do not make this decision lightly and regret that we are having to make this announcement.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email [email protected]

2018 Columbia Triathlon Date Set



2018 Columbia Triathlon Date Set


BALTIMORE – October 4, 2017 – The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) announced next year’s Columbia Triathlon & Duathlon will take place on June 24 at Centennial Park in Ellicott City, Maryland. The Ulman Cancer Fund will continue to benefit from funds raised by the event to impact the lives of young adults and their loved ones impacted by cancer.


Brian Satola, Chief Operating Officer of The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, said, “We continue to be committed to the legacy of the Columbia Triathlon.  This is not just a triathlon to the tens of thousands of athletes that have completed this nationally recognized event. It means so much to many in our community and beyond.” 


Satola also addressed the reason for the event’s new date. “The date change was dictated out of the necessity to support all of the county government entities that have been stretched to their limits with Wine in the Woods and The Columbia Triathlon previously being held on the same weekend,” he said.


For more than 35 years, the Columbia Triathlon has attracted athletes from across the United States and around the world to Howard County to compete in the acclaimed Olympic distance race.

Follow the steps below to post your event photos on Facebook:

  • Your photos will post to an album on your Facebook timeline.
  • Photos will auto-post to your Facebook page in batches over time as they are tagged by our team. Some photos will even post before you cross the finish line so your friends and family can see how much fun you are having on the course! You can remove any photos from your timeline that you do not want to keep.


Option 2: Zinfolio
