33rd Annual Siesta Key Triathlon. This is "The Original" that started the multisport movement in this part of the country back in 1985. A non-profit fundraiser benefitting the Sarasota YMCA Sharks Swimming program is well known for its enthusiastic yellow sea of volunteers as well as the post-race feeding frenzy provided by the parents of the Sharks.
Each wave will consist of a beach start as the athletes enter the Gulf of Mexico for a 1/3 mile swim. The swim course will be accurate (measured with GPS and confirmed with laser), safe (professionally designed in detail for the athletes) & well supported (above USAT standards). The Bike course will be our traditional and fast 13 mile loop on Siesta Key which takes athletes south to Turtle Beach and then north around Siesta Village and back. The scenic run course will be a combination of surfaces on World Famous Siesta Key Beach.
There are 2 short segments of soft sand that challenge our athletes. The best strategy is to use a high cadence to maximize your efficiency across these segments.
Finish Area at the newly remodeled Siesta Key Public Beach. Please check our website, Facebook & Twitter frequently for race updates.
Selected by the Sarasota Storm Tri Club as part of their annual Sarasota Strom Race Series!
