How do I get to the start?

Our triathlons take place at the Upper Lake Mary Boat Launch and Picnic Area. Please check each event for directions and plan in time to park and walk to the starting area.

Where do I park?

Limited parking is available for a fee at the boat docks. All other parking is along the shoulders of Lake Mary Road. It is essential for the safety of our athletes and spectators to park with tires completely OFF of the pavement and tell others if they do not comply. You may have a short walk from your vehicle to the race area. There are paved entrance driveways to enter transition from either side of the ramada area (please do not cut across the rocky hillside).

What is the water temperature?

The temperature for the last 10 years has been between 69 and 71 degrees Fahrenheit. Wet suits are allowed.

Where can I find wave start information?

All of our swims are wave starts. Wave start information will be announced closer to race day. First wave start times: July – 7:00 AM, August – 6:10 AM.

When does the transition area open and close?

Transition Area will open at 5:30AM (July) and 4:45 AM (August) and will close 10 minutes prior to the start of the first swim wave.

What do I need for packet pick up/registration?

All athletes must present a picture ID to pick up their packet. You can only get your own packet, not any other competitors packet. All timing chip pick up is on race morning.

Where can I watch on race morning?

Spectators can see the racers several times from the race transition area at the Lake Mary Boat Docks. Spectators may view other areas of the course, but must be sure to give space to athletes and park completely off of the pavement.

Are there any fees to watch a triathlon?

No fees, families are welcome. Come out on a beautiful day to enjoy the race. Please be aware of traffic and racers at all times and stay off of the course while viewing.
