Join us for the 1st annual Sarasota Tri, Sprint and International Triathlon.  There is no better place to host a triathlon in Sarasota than Nathan Benderson Park (NBP).  NBP is home of the 2017 World Rowing Championships, with over 400 acres of lake and 600 acres of park. 

This summer Sprint and International triathlon, duathlon and aquabike will take athletes on a fresh water swim.  This lake swim will be a fast one with little to no current. Spectators can follow their athlete along the bridge, cheering them along the way.  The sprint triathlon will cover ¼ mile and the international will swim ½ mile.  Duathletes will complete a 1 mile run before setting out on the bike.

The bike course will go through NBP and out into the lovely city of Sarasota, the gateway to the beaches of the Gulf.  This is a flat course, sure to set some personal records. The sprint distance will cover 10.5 miles and the international distance will complete 20 miles.

After completing the bike portion, runners will hit the park with a flat course.  Athletes will get to take in all that NBP has to offer, traveling around the lake on protected paths.  This is a summer event, so while the course may be flat, it will have its temperature challenges. 

Be the first of a first! Join your fellow athletes for another great race you have come to expect from MultiRace.

This is just another reason to race with MultiRace!  In addition, awards are given to the top 3 finishers in all categories.  Those receiving overall and master awards are removed from their age groups, bumping everyone else up in the age group standings.  There is no double dipping.  If you qualify for overall, you cannot get another award for masters overall or your age group.  Pro-Elite participants only qualify for overall awards.  All participants will also receive a custom designed Race Shirt at Packet Pickup. Collect them all!
