Races: Swim 0.75 K, Bike 20 K, Run 5 K
The 2575 Triathlon Series and first race of the 2013 season kicks-off in Key Biscayne in March.
Created and organized by the founders of the Miami International Triathlon, the new 2575 Triathlon Series holds the same high standards of quality and organization for the ultimate triathlon racing experience. Now they are back to kick off the season series in Key Biscayne, Florida.
The 2575 Triathlon Series is similar to the 5150 Series announced last year by the World Triathlon Corporation. In this case organizers will focus on the Sprint Distance triathlon market for their series. The number 2575 is derived from the kilometer distances raced by athletes in a Sprint distance triathlon; 0.75km Swim, 20km Bike, 5km Run. The 2575 Series would tap into an audience that attracts many first-time triathletes to the sport as well as those seasoned athletes that seek to prove that they are the fastest in the sport.
Event Start Location
The event will begin at the beautiful City of Miami Marine Stadium located in Key Biscayne.
The Swim course: A closed bay with nothing except ocean blue waters and the sound of your strokes.
The Bike Course: Known very well by locals, the "Key Biscayne Loop" features a perfect 12.4 mile course when starting at the City of Miami Marine Stadium. Featuring beautiful views of the Downtown Miami Skyline, as well as Key Biscayne & Virginia Key beaches and parks, this course is smooth and flat in the majority of its extension - but don't think for a second it will be an easy ride: the William Powell bridge will separate real athletes from the rest, as it adds almost one mile of "hill climbing" biking and stands a total of 76 feet tall at its highest point from the water level.
THe Run Course: A 3.1 mile stretch course shaded by pine trees and natural vegetation where all you see are trees and the sky blue shoreline. No cars, no streets, no traffic lights. As one of Miami's best kept secrets, this running course along the bay has been just repaved.
The top 3 finishers in each category will be awarded trophies along with the finisher medal.
