Description:
Tri-Miami will take place at Marine Stadium on Key Biscayne, FL. There is not a more pristine or visually appealing venue than this. Your triathlon will start off with a calm and warm open water swim in Biscayne Bay. This swim is like no other open water swim you have experienced before. You can expect very calm seas and temperatures hovering around 80 degrees. After the swim, the bike will take you out onto Rickenbacker Causeway. Throughout the entire ride you will be surrounded by lush tropical landscapes and superior ocean views. Included on the bike course you will experience the William B Powel Bridge which will present a vertical challenge along with breathtaking views of downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay. For the last leg, you will run around the Virginia Key Path.
