CLEARWATER, FL – Oct. 10, 2013 –Florida’s stunning West Coast will once again welcome triathletes of all capabilities to the TriRock Clearwater Triathlon to benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America on Sunday, November 10.
TriRock Clearwater will feature sprint and intermediate distance events as well as a three-person triathlon relay. The course boasts a single loop, warm water swim in the Gulf of Mexico, followed by a flat single loop bike course that takes athletes through the sites and scenes of downtown Clearwater. The triathlon ends with a scenic run finishing back at Pier 60. Seasoned veterans and beginners alike can enjoy music along the course and a rockin’ post-race concert on the sand with family and friends.
“Clearwater not only offers an impressive setting for the race course, but participants can double their trip as a vacation as they enjoy the destination’s notable beach, which was voted as having the best sand on the east coast by Condé Nast Traveler,” said Molly Quinn, Vice President of Triathlon at Competitor Group, organizer of the TriRock Triathlon Series. “In addition to the scenic surroundings, the music featured along the race course will add to the fun and entertaining atmosphere that TriRock events are known for.”
The unique triathlon format features a rocking competition, followed by a post-race party and concert by the beach. Participants will receive a finisher’s medal, technical t-shirt, red carpet finish, post-race breakfast and access to the concert and beer garden. Participants just testing the waters of the triathlon experience can also sign up as a 3-person relay team, taking on either the swim, bike or run component.
