A staple for the last 4  years, the Turkey sprint duathlon & triathlon takes place at the beautiful Tradewinds Park located in Coconut Creek, Florida. 
     
Kicking off the holiday season,  athletes can burn off some of that Thanksgiving dinner in a fast triathlon or duathlon.  This race is perfect for the new triathlete with a straight across the lake swim, traffic-less bike course, and a sidewalk run. 

Swimmers will start on the south end of the lake and finish on the north end.  The lake is calm, with no current and minimal wake from other swimmers.  Spectators can see the entire swim along the park path.  For those athletes who prefer not to swim, we offer the duathlon option, replacing the swim with a .75 mile run.

As athletes exit the water, they will transition to their bikes for a fast and safe 10 mile bike ride through Tradewinds Park.  Cyclists will enjoy this course because it is void of vehicular traffic, giving them a chance to focus on their bike performance.  Cyclists will pass each other on the way back into transition. 

Runners will get to view Tradewinds Park from the paths around the lake in a 2 loop course.  This is another great opportunity for spectators to cheer on their athletes. Picnic tables are plentiful for families and friends to gather at for a comfortable spectating experience, especially for older parents and children.  There is also a playground to keep the young ones entertained. The Turkey sprint duathlon and triathlon at Tradewind Park is a great way to start the day with family and friends.

COURSE

This triathlon features a 1/4-mile swim, followed by a 10 mile closed course bike completely inside of Tradewinds Park, and then finishes with a 3 mile closed course run.


Swim Map

The swim is a 1/4-mile swim in Tradewinds’ lake.  It is a great race for first timers as the water is flat with no current or waves, so it makes for an easy swim. Duathletes will start with a short .75 mile run instead of the 1/4-mile swim.



Bike Map

The bike course makes 2 loops around the south and north ends of Tradewinds Park.  The course is closed to cars and is completely contained inside of the park.  There are also no hard U-turns on the course, making for a fast and easy bike split.



Triathlon Run Map

The run course goes along the path next to the lake in a counter-clockwise fashion.  Athletes will complete 2 laps here as well to make 3 miles.


Duathlon Map

The duathlon first run course starts outside of the bike end of transition. It heads north, makes a counter-clockwise loop around the Tradewinds Park North Parking Lot, then returns on the path next to the lake. The duathlon first run will be 3/4 mile. 


Transition

The transition area is located on the north side of the lake. Parking will be on your left hand side.

During the competition you will enter the transition area after the swim on the south end of transition under the arch labeled RUN. You will get your bike and exit transition on the north end through the arch labeled BIKE. Once you have completed the bike course you will re-enter transition through the BIKE arch again, change into your running shoes and exit through the RUN arch, turning left on the running path along the lake.
