Inaugural Motivation Man Triathlon in Palm Beach County, FL


Motivation Man LogoAthletes from all over Florida and the nation have a whole new reason to get in shape and race to The Palm Beaches this summer, thanks to the inaugural Motivation Man Triathlon, presented by The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach, which is set for Saturday, June 2. Produced by Game On Sports Marketing Group, Inc., the race will be the first-ever multi-sports event to take place in Downtown West Palm Beach, featuring both Half-iron and Olympic distances.

"We are excited to bring the Motivation Man to West Palm Beach. We expect more than 1,000 athletes to participate and we're confident they will love the course and views," said Game On CEO and President Steven J. Tebon. "The new waterfront, City Commons and the first-rate facilities within the Clematis District add up to a world-class triathlon location that we hope to expand regionally and nationally in future years."

The Motivation Man will offer two race distances for endurance athletes that start and finish in the Clematis District. The 70.3-mile, half-iron race -- which is the fastest growing triathlon distance -- consists of a 1.2-mile swim in the Intracoastal Waterway, a 56-mile bike portion through several Palm Beach County cities and towns, and a 13.1-mile run course along Flagler Drive and the West Palm Beach waterfront. The Olympic distance race will feature a shorter course, consisting of a .94-mile swim, 25-mile bike and 6.5-mile run.

In addition to the races, the Motivation Man event will also feature a week of social events in Downtown West Palm Beach for participants and guests. The main events include a two-day Publix Health & Fitness Expo with local and national vendors, as well as a post-race party and awards ceremony on Clematis Street.

"We're very pleased that Game On Sports Marketing Group is bringing an event of this caliber to The Palm Beaches," said Palm Beach County Convention and Visitor's Bureau President and CEO Jorge Pesquera. "This announcement of the Motivation Man Triathlon certainly reaffirms the great appeal our destination holds among endurance athletes."
