For over 3 decades the Tarpon Springs Rotary Sprint Triathlon has been one of the most well organized and volunteer supported triathlon and duathlons in Florida run by a professional group of race organizers. This sprint distance race is a favorite for first timers all the way to those who come back every year to grow their collection of Tarpon Tri awesome finisher's medals (one issued to every participant in triathlon/duathlon/or relay). The race is a fundraiser which has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to the youth of Tarpon Springs through scholarsips and leadership programs by Rotarians who work hard to serve you in service above self.   The Tarpon Tri takes place on beautiful Fred Howard Park Beach and the island only hold 600 cars so that is our sell out number! We encourage you to take advantage of the early registration donation as the price increases as the race begins to fill. We do keep a waiting list after we reach 600 registrants so if you find that registration is closed please immediately email XanaduRaceManagement@gmail.com so that we can add you to the wait list then invite you to register as cancellations come in prior to race week. For specific questions you can text Suzanne at 727-CAN-RACE or visit the race website at www.TarponSpringsTriathlon.com  

Event details and schedule

The race begins with a quarter mile swim at 7:30 a.m. off of Fred Howard Beach which is a popule swim location for tourists and beach goers.  The bike portion of the race is an 11 mile scenic route and paved and closed roads taking you across Fred Howard Causeway and into historic Tarpon Springs. Our bike course is one of our favorite ways to showcase our beautiful town and it is well staff by the Tarpon Police Department and race volunteers. The run ends inside Fred Howard Park with a 5K that takes you back to the finish line right next to transition area. Then the fun begins and it has made this race famous...the post race party food is out of this world and unique to any race you have ever attended. Rotarians bake dozens of homemade cookies and gather food from some of the best Greek restaurants in the world as Tarpon Springs is the hub for one of the most cultural Greek communities. From wraps, to spanikopita, to baklava, we will satisfy your appetite as you cross the finish line.  Wash it all down with an ice cold beer at our Michelob Ultra post race extravaganza.  Awards are presented 5 deep in standard age groups and the give away's are abundant.    The Duathlon (run/bike/run) category includes a 1.7 mile run/11 mile bike/5K run. We will see you on our make up 2017 date of Saturday, October 7, 2017, and on Saturday, October 7, 2019. The race is always held the first Saturday after Labor Day. An email will go out late in race week with arrival instructions to all pre registered participants but updates on packet pick up times and locations can be found on the race website www.TarponSpringsTriathlon.com for specific email questions please email SuzanneHensleeTriathlon@gmail.com   Results are posted race day at www.DRCsports.com
