Loggerhead Sprint Triathlon
I just registered my husband and I for the 2011 Loggerhead Triathlon. The race takes place on Saturday, August 6 at Carlin Park in Jupiter, Florida. Loggerhead is a sprint distance triathlon with the following distances:
- 600 yard swim
- 13 mile bike
- 3.1 mile run
Most sprint triathlons I've done have a 400 meter swim, 10 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. The longer swim will be okay, being fairly new to the sport of triathlon, the swim is my weakest of the three sports. But I really like the slightly longer bike portion, after all, I am the Bike Diva!
The Loggerhead Triathlon caps out at 600 registrants. As of this morning there were already 500 people signed up. So hurry, hurry, hurry, and register for the race if you are interested in doing it: http://membership.npbchamber.com/Events/details/loggerhead-triathlon-08-07-2011.
The Loggerhead Triathlon is one of the longest enduring triathlons in the state of Florida. Dating back to 1985, triathletes have made the trip to Jupiter year after year to enjoy the magnificent Oceanside setting, the family-friendly atmosphere, and the competition. Jointly sponsored by the Triathlon Club of the Palm Beaches and the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, the event has become a “must do” on the southeast race circuit and has spawned some of the top triathletes in the United States.
The Loggerhead Triathlon will be held on Saturday, August 6th beginning at 7:00am at Carlin Park in Jupiter, FL. The race course consists of a 3/8 mile ocean swim, 13 mile bike and flat 3.1 mile run. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall in each division. Following the race, photos can be viewed at: www.bbactionphoto.com
