Las Olas, is the heart & soul of Fort Lauderdale. With it’s street-lined cafes, fashion boutiques & art galleries, Las Olas has been a symbol of old Florida charm & now, the Las Olas Triathlon. The race begins with a beautiful sunrise and a running start over the sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale. Spectators can enjoy watching the start of this race along the beach. Swimmers typically enjoy a wetsuit legal swim in the cool salt waters off of the Atlantic ocean. After conquering the sprint (500 meters) or international (1000 meters) swim distance, athletes will transition to their bikes. The Las Olas Triathlon has an improved bike course this year, taking the athletes along Florida’s state road, A1A and through Hugh Birch State Park.

This race experience usually sells out so don’t miss your chance to be part of this captivating Florida race event.
