2,150 Triathletes Set to Swim, Bike and Run in Annual Miami Event

Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company announced today that Mack Cycle and Fitness, a top bike retailer in South Florida for the past 57 years, will be the title sponsor of the 10th annual Escape to Miami Triathlon. Set for September 28, the Mack Cycle Escape to Miami Triathlon is part of the nationwide Life Time Tri Series.

“Mack Cycle and Fitness has been involved in triathlons for more than 20 years and is a long time sponsor of the Escape to Miami Triathlon. As we continue to grow this event and integrate ourselves into the nationally recognized Life Time Tri Series, it’s exciting to take our relationship to the next level and sign Mack Cycle as title sponsor, especially as we approach our 10 year anniversary event,” said Race Director Javier Sanchez. “We share a passion for triathlons, endurance events and encouraging people to live a healthy way of life and look forward to showcasing all that Miami has to offer in this unique triathlon.”

Competitors in the Olympic distance, presented by Muscle Milk, will be ferried to “Escape Island” in Biscayne Bay for a scenic start. Racers then will swim .9 miles back across open waters to Margaret Pace Park to transition onto a 24.8 mile bike course over the Julia Tuttle Causeway to Miami Beach that includes eight bridge crossings and then a 6.2 mile running course on the MacArthur Causeway to Star Island and back. The Sprint distance, also presented by Mack Cycle and Fitness, provides a .25 mile swim along the shoreline followed by a 13 mile bike course and a 3.1 mile run.

In addition to the Triathlon, a Health Expo will be held Saturday and Sunday, September 27 and 28 for race participants and spectators to see and experience sponsors and local partners latest products and services. The Expo will also have speakers covering topics on health and fitness, and race day tips. Expo hours are 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday and 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. on race day.
