About This Activity

GET STOKED, SLACKERS!!! Life's A Beach Triathlon is back for it's 6th year in Sarasota and you can join us on the beach for the bodacious good times! 

The Life's A Beach Triathlon is the fun triathlon that almost anyone can finish!

Heard your serious triathlon friends talk about shaving seconds off their transition times? Well, at Life's A Beach "transition time" means how long it takes to get you from the finish line into beach bash mode--dancing in the sand to the beat of our live music or chillaxing with a cold beverage while waiting for your friends to finish. At our Sarasota event, the finish line is right at the Lido Beach Resort--our host hotel and site of our jammin' after-party!

 

EVENT DISCIPLINES AND DISTANCES

Almost Anything Goes Swim--200 yards

  • Want to use fins? Be our guest! Want to use a boogie board? Awesome!

Chillaxin' Bike--5 miles

  • On a mix of paved roads, wide, flat trails and just a little sand!
  • Beach cruisers or mountain bikes highly recommended!

Beach Run--2 Miles

  • On the run you'll have some fun, beach-themed obstacles to keep you smiling!
  • And, where else can you hurdle pink flamingoes and limbo at the finish line?

 

WANT AN EXTRA CHALLENGE?

LIFE'S A BEACH EXTREME 8AM START WAVE

For 2017 we've gone a bit crazy--continuing with themore challenging 8am wave that is double the distance. You'll also be faced with some other (we're working on improving these) unique beach-oriented challenges. This wave costs a little more, but participants will get an additional (even more unique) race shirt and an additional finisher's medal.

 

 

FAMILY-FRIENDLY TRIATHLON

Want to race with your family? We allow racers down to 9 years old AND you can all sign up for the same starting wave! That's right--start waves are not based on age group--you choose! So, you can also race next to friends and coworkers!

We'll even have a free Hatchling Dash Kid's Run (with medals!)  for the younger kids--so bring along the entire family for some beach fun!

Life's A Beach Triathlon Gives Back

  • We LOVE our beach environment and recognize and support those who conserve and protect its resources. Because our logo is a sea turtle, we've chosen to support the local turtle watch/walk program at each of our venues (or another local marine conservation/education non-profit if there is no turtle program) with a $1 donation per each paid entry.
  • In Sarasota, we are supporting the Mote Sea Turtle Patrol from Mote Marine Laboratory.
  • Mote Marine Laboratory is also a great place to visit while on your Life's A Beach adventure weekend in Sarasota!

 

NO EVENT REFUNDS.

LIMITED TRANSFERS OR DEFERRALS MAY BE AVAILABLE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 6, 2017. AFTER THAT DATE A $15 FEE WILL BE REQUIRED FOR DEFERRALS.
