Course
The star of the show

The South Beach Triathlon begins with an ocean swim in the beautiful, warm water (expected water temperature is 78 degrees) that runs parallel to world-famous South Beach. The bike course will be relatively flat, crossing over Miami Beach’s famous Causeways with scenic views of the Intracoastal Waterway, downtown Miami and Miami Beach. The run course will be a fast out and back alongside Miami Beach’s Art Deco District, finishing on the white sands of South Beach.

Please consult the Athlete Guide for a complete listing of course cut-off times, as all athletes must abide by City of Miami and City of Miami Beach road closure timelines.
