race.

The Dunedin Rotary Triathlon is held on Honeymoon Island which is known to be one of the most picturesque beaches in the United States.  The city of Dunedin and this lovely state park welcomes the athletes with open arms and embraces this triathlon event.  You will find beautiful beaches, a closed bike course to maximize speed, and a partially shaded, well-marked run course through the park where you’ll see a variety of plants and wildlife.

 

USAT SANCTIONED EVENT

This is a USA Triathlon (USAT) sanctioned event.  Therefore, the event will follow the rules and regulation as directed by USAT.  USAT official(s) will be onsite during the event.  Current USAT rulebook can be found at www.teamusa.org/USA-Triathlon/About/Multisport/Competitive-Rules.

 

All athletes must have a current USAT membership number and photo ID to race.  You have the option of purchasing an annual adult membership ($50), annual youth membership ($10) or a one day membership ($15).  You will be prompted during your online registration to choose which membership you would like and payment for the membership will be collected at that time. 

IMPORTANT*** The USAT Age rule requires that all participants race by birth year rather than their age on race day. This means your race age will be the same for all sanctioned events for an entire calendar year. The age group of a participant will be determined by age on December 31st of the event year, not by age on race day.

 

PARKING:

There is no fee to get into the park and on the island for the race. Park gates will be open at 5:30 am for athletes to enter.  Volunteers will be onsite to direct you to both parking and packet pickup.    

WHEN TO ARRIVE AT THE RACE:

You must be onsite NO later than 6:30 a.m. Please give yourself PLENTY of time to get from your car to race central.  Once there, you will need to get body marked, then pick up your timing chip, get all your equipment into transition and be ready to attend the MANDATORY race director meeting at 7:15 a.m. 

 
course. 

 

TRIATHLON -  ¼ MILE SWIM:

The swim takes place along the middle Honeymoon Island beach. The swim is a triangle course starting and finishing on the beach. The depth of the water ranges from very shallow near the shore to 8-12 feet, depending on the tide. 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.

 

DUATHLON - 5K 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. 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. Please note before you head to run 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

Both Triathletes and Duathletes will enter Transition following their first evolution. Athletes are timed in transition by the RFID Chip timing device worn on their ankle. The time from swim end and T1 begins when the athlete crosses over the timing mat. 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. Athletes will be counted as the complete the first lap to make sure everyone does the entire course. 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. 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 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.
