2013 Rocketman Florida Triathlon:

MAKE HISTORY and join us for the Rocketman Florida Triathlon on May 5, 2013.  This iconic triathlon will be competed on Central FloridasSpaceCoast and is the first major public sporting event ever held on theKennedySpaceCenter. 

 

Course Information:


  • The Rocketman Triathlon offers three separate race distances Classic +, International + and Half Iron with each featuring a stunning bike ride inside the secured gates of the Kennedy Space Center and around all of Americas major space program landmarks. The KSC portion of the bike ride is more than 15 miles long and is sandwiched between equally beautiful scenery of the remainder of the route on the Canaveral National Seashore and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

  • The + aspect of the Classic and International distance rides is due to the extra bicycle distance necessary to get all triathletes out and around the two Space Shuttle launch pads. Rather than the standard 19-mile and 24.8 mile bike distances, those athletes will instead both ride a bike course of approximately 34 miles. Competitors in the Half distance race, will ride the usual 56-mile route.

  • The start, finish and transition area for The Rocketman will be in downtown Titusville at the riverfront Space View Park.

    Amazing venue! There was one point on the way back from the launch pads where I saw a few downed bikes. The railroad tracks came across the road at a angle and people did not adjust for it. (salt water) Swim within eye's view of manatee was cool. My kids saw several dolphins while waiting. Bike ride was beautiful and brutal due to strong winds. For their first year I would say it was pretty damn good. Would have like to have seen the bikes released earlier. We walk the down town area while waiting small but nice. A local recommended El Leoncito Mexican restaurant excellent margarita's great time killer.
