About This Activity

We hope to see you Satruday, September 8, 2018, at 7 a.m. at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs Florida, because for 3 decades the Tarpon Springs Rotary Sprint Triathlon has been one of the most well organized and volunteer supported triathlon and duathlon 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. 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 prices as the race sells out quickly. For specific questions please email XanaduRaceManagement@gmail.com   For course maps and general race information please visit the event website www.TarponSpringsTriathlon.com where you will get a great idea of this one of a kind experience from pre race, race experience, and a post race party second to none. Remember the Rotarians manage the website so if you notice dates that seem incorrect or outdated that is because they have day jobs so don't hesitate to reach out to Suzanne at XanaduRaceManagement@gmail.com  or text her at 727-CAN-RACE (727-226-7223)    

Event details and schedule

The race begins with a quarter mile swim at 7:30 a.m. from the beach for triathletes and at the same time on Fred Howard Cswy for the duathletes which begins with a 2K run.  The bike portion of the race (10.3 miles) is scenic 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. The run for both triathletes and duathletes ends inside Fred Howard Park with a 5K (3.1 mile run) 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 gyro or chicken wraps, to spanikopita, to baklava, we will satisfy your appetite as you cross the finish line.  Wash it all down with an ice cold Michelob Ultra beer at our Michelob Ultra post race extravaganza.  Awards are presented 3 deep in standard age groups and the give away's are always a fun show.    The Duathlon (run/bike/run) category includes a 1.5 mile run/10 mile bike/5K run. If you are transferring from our 2017 event please send an email to  SuzanneHensleeTriathlon@gmail.com and she will help get your registered here online. NO refunds are issued as a standard policy in the industry so this is why we offer early registration low prices. Please understand if we are forced to cancel or postpone due to a call from a higher power (weather or unsafe conditions) your fee to enter is a donation that goes 100% to youth scholarships in the Tarpon Springs teen community. We hope to see you at this amazing fundraising event!
