It’s almost here. The perfect end to our sunny, sticky South Florida summer.
Now in its 22nd year, it is Lake Worth’s featured athletic event, bringing together seasoned tri-athletes and newcomers of all ages to compete outdoors. The race is a USA Triathlon-sanctioned sprint—that’s a 0.25-mile swim, followed by 13 miles on the bike, capped by a 5K run.
But the course is what makes it so special: We start at dawn. We face east—toward the rising sun and the ocean. We head from the barrier island to the mainland via the Intracoastal bridge, tour quaint downtown Lake Worth, and wind up with views of the local Snook Island nature preserve.
