  • Course Info:

    THE VENUE:

    The Dunedin Triathlon is held on Honeymoon Island which is known to be one of the most picturesque beaches in the United States.

    THE COURSE:

    Each athlete will be provided with a timing chip on race morning to wear on their ankle. You will be timed in 5 areas of the race.

    ¼ MILE SWIM: The swim takes place along the middle Honeymoon Island beach. The average athlete will accomplish the swim between 15 and 20 minutes depending on the current. The swim is a triangle course starting and finishing on the Honeymoon Island beach. The depth of the water ranges from very shallow near the short to 8-12 feet. Swimmers are expected to negotiate the water with whatever swim stroke they are comfortable. In the sallow areas swimmers who move inside the buoys to stand are NOT allowed to make forward motion as they are OFF COURSE and will be disqualified by a swim marshal out in the water. If you need to move inside the buoys to rest you may NOT make forward motion. You may only make forward motion once you have regained a position on the course. Please note before you head to swim start to count how many rows in or out your bike rack is positioned so you are not confused when you enter T1.

    TRANSITION ONE - T1 - Athletes are timed in transition one by the Champion Chip timing device worn on their ankle. The time from swim end and T1 begins when the athlete crosses over the timing mat. If you pay attention, you will hear beeping as athletes cross the mat. If you don’t hear a beep, please don’t turn around and come back. The timing company usually is able to keep an overall time for all athletes and we want you to keep progressing. Athletes may run in transition as they progress to their designated bike rack.

    12 MILE BIKE: The bike course is a 6 mile loop over the Dunedin Causeway draw bridge and into and around Honeymoon Island. The lap is done twice for a total of 12 miles. An average bike time is 30 to 45 minutes. Those with bike times of 15 to 20 minutes obviously cut the second lap out and will automatically be disqualified. No radios or headsets are allowed on the bike course. Your bike helmet must be secured and fastened before you mount your bike at the mounting line. No athlete may ever ride their bike inside the transition area. Any athlete seen on the bike course without a helmet will be disqualified and asked to remove themselves from the course. HELMETS MUST BE WORN through the entire bike course. Without one you are a liability to the safety of the event. If you approach a no passing, dismount, or slow down area, do as you are told. These areas are set because we have very carefully gone over the course and take measures to keep you all safe.

    PASSING ON THE BIKE
    When on the bike course keep to the hard right. If you intend to pass, make sure you have room, and then move out, and call out in a loud voice, ON YOUR LEFT. Make your pass then move again to the hard right of the bike path. DO NOT PASS ON THE RIGHT.

    TRANSITION TWO - T2– Entering the transition for the second time you must dismount your bike at the designated dismount line. Keep your helmet on and fastened until you are back at your bike rack. You must dock your bike in the same area designated to be in at race start. Change into your running shoes and secure your race number.

    5K (3.1 mile) RUN: The first mile of the run course goes along the coastline on the hard asphalt of the parking lots along the west coast of the island. It's sunny, easy and GORGEOUS. The second mile of the run takes you onto a hard packed trail near the beach and into the shady and remote trails of Osprey Trailhead. The final mile leads you out of Osprey and back onto the asphalt of the parking lot to the finish line. It's a great run and we receive great accolades from the triathletes for this portion of the course.

    where do i start ! ok here goes will someone anyone please take the microphone from that woman!!! that has to be the most annoying thing i have ever experienced in my life and i have done over 200 triathlons , how about the swim or should i say walk absolutely pathetic i have some advice maybe schedule your race when the tide is actually in and not at its low ebb.next the bike course terrible, dangerous, atrocious marshaling ,how there wasnt multiple accidents is a miracle , and still the wailing on the mic ,the only decent thing about this race was the run but the bad news is you had to come back to the finish line where you was met by the verbal assault that had been going on for two hours , all in all terrible race oh one last thing the parking volunteers were taking there job just a little bit to serious if it wasnt for them parking would have been smoother and easier.i forgot one last thing the t shirt was actually good.

    This was my first triathlon. The scenery was great and I actually liked the woman screaming on the mic. If you read the pre-race emails it stated that she would be loud and obnoxious (but is was all in good fun). The course was at a great location - and the volunteers were helpful and nice. I'm sure they had their hands full with the storm that came through the night before. My only complaint (setting aside the obvious -swim) was that the course did not seem to fit the length specifications. I estimate that the bike was around 11 miles and the run was about 2.5 miles. I will be doing the race again next year!
