2014 Tri for Joe at Coney Island Triathlon, Duathlon & 5K:

  • We kick off the racing season with our Annual Tri for Joe at Coney Island Park - a great race for first-time triathletes.
  • What began as an event Tom Gerstle and his family created to honor their son, Joe who has Down syndrome, is now headed into its 9th year as a fun, family-friendly racing celebration in the Cincinnati community.
  • The Tri consists of a 500 meter swim in the largest flat surface pool in North America, 20k bike along Kellogg Avenue, and a 5k run inside the famous Coney Island Amusement Park!
  • But this event is not just for triathletes! Tri for Joe has it all: triathlon, duathlon, aqua bike, separate 5k run/walk and a Kids Fun Run. Form a relay team and compete with friends and family. You dont have to be a seasoned triathlete to come out and enjoy the fun!

  • Course Information:

  • The swim will occur in Coney Islands Sunlight Pool, the worlds largest recirculating pool!
  • Athletes have a time trial start (2 athletes at a time) and will traverse the pool to complete the 500 meter swim.
  • The swim course is beginner friendly with approximately half of the swim in the shallow end of the pool with a water depth of approximately 4 feet.
  • This is a very spectator friendly swim as the edge of the pool will be packed with friends and family.
  • The water temp has been wetsuit legal over the years but is open to the public later in the day for recreational swimming so the temperature is manageable.

  • The bike course will be a single 20K loop along the flat roads just outside of the Coney Island Park.
  • Athletes will exit the park and head east on Kellogg avenue to the first turnaround and head back west past Coney to the final turnaround as athletes make their way back to Coney.
  • The roads will be shared with traffic, but athletes will have a dedicated lane that will be coned off to vehicular traffic.
  • Police and volunteers will be present to assist with traffic control along this fast and flat course.
  • Bring your water bottles, no aid will be provided along the bike course.

  • The run will be a flat and fast out and back 5K route within the beautiful Coney Island Picnic grove.
  • Aid stations will be provided at the transition exit, at mile 1 (approximately) and at the run turnaround.
