Description:

2014 Rotary Pineapple Man Triathlon (MULTIRACE TIMED EVENT)


Twenty-Eight years ago members of the Melbourne Beach Rotary Club put together the first triathlon in this part of Florida. The race 0.34 mile swim, 15.4 miles bike and 3.4 miles run put Central Florida on the triathlon map.

What began as an innovative idea for charitable fund raising has become a tradition in our community. Hundreds of endurance athletes from around the state and across the nation look forward to racing on our courses each year. We are expecting a record 750 registrations in 2014.

This charity fund raising event is the oldest continually run sprint triathlon in Florida and supports community projects and humanitarian projects locally, nationally and internationally.

One of the many international projects Polio Plus was started in 1985 with the goal of wiping polio from the face of the earth. And, the good news is that there two countries still at risk. The World is very close to being polio-free.

Race proceeds also allow Rotary to contribute significantly to national programs and our local community by supporting various programs that make a difference such as Odyssey of the Mind teams, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Melbourne Beach town projects, Gemini Elementary School and Friends of Melbourne Beach Library.

Year after year, the Rotary Pineapple Man Triathlon makes a difference in our world.

    500 Year Celebration Ponce de Leons 1513 voyage to Florida






    Back in 1985 members of the Melbourne Beach Rotary Club put together the first sprint triathlon on the Space Coast of Florida. This event helped put Central Florida on the triathlon map.

    What began as an innovative and fun idea for charitable fund raising has become a tradition in the oldest beach-side town in Brevard County, FL. Hundreds of endurance athletes from all parts of the United States look forward to racing the scenic courses each year. The event has consistently sold out over the last several years at the event limit of 750 entrants.

    For over two decades, the Pineapple Man has allowed the Rotary Club of Melbourne Beach to make meaningful contributions to community and humanitarian projects at the local, national and international levels.
