Tradewinds Park is a beautiful park to host our event. The entire event will take place inside the park, so we have a closed course with no traffic.
The start/transition area will be the first parking lot on the left as you enter the south entrance to the park.
The swim course starts half way down the lake on the south side of the park. The lake edge curves allowing a straight view across the lake to the boat rental house. Swimmers will start at that point and swim straight across to the left side of the boat rental house. The water is very clean and flat (no waves!). There is a dirt lead in and out of the water, so no wading through seaweed! After the swim, participants will make a short run across the street to the transition area.
The bike course runs north under Sample road to the northern end of the park. From there it heads west, then back south again until it reaches the north park entrance. There riders will make a U-turn and head back the way they came. The bike course is 5 miles and we will do 2 laps.
The run course goes north along the main park road to the entrance, then U-turns south to the end of the road where runners will take a short jog through the woods on a paved path and return to the main park road going northbound to the finish.
Take the Florida Turnpike to Sample Road, then go west. At the first stoplight, turn left into Tradewinds Park (South Entrance).
