Being an Olympic year, the world’s best athletes were traveling the world to train — taking advantage of altitude and benefiting from exceptional facilities, trails, tracks and terrain. But local athletes take advantage of Ocean City’s exceptional outdoor training grounds all year long.
We have the sandy beaches, the sparkling ocean, the open bay, the long/steady bridges, the amusing boardwalk and the bike path.
I had heard the rumor before I moved here, but not until I began my day-in-and-day-out training did I realize what a special place we live and breathe. From sunrise to sunset, you will see the enthusiasm for life as people are swimming past the jetties from First Street Beach, stand-up paddleboarding in the inlet, fighting for waves on Waverly, flying in the sky on kiteboards at the South End, doing beach yoga on Sixth Street, touching end-to-end on Boardwalk runs and taking family rides down the bike path.
You don’t have to be an elite athlete to take advantage of our superior training grounds that will provide you with positive vibrations mentally and physically. Get outside today and find joy in exercise that motivates you to be the best you can be.
