The inaugural event of the new national half iron distance national TOUGHMAN Series, TOUGHMAN Florida, will take place on March 15, 2015 at Lake Manatee State Park in Bradenton, Florida.
The TOUGHMAN Half starts at 7 am on March 15.
The TOUGH Kid's event starts at 9 am on March 14.
The vision of the event is to focus on providing the best possible athlete race day experience, in a fun, friendly, family-focused environment.
To that end, Lake Manatee State Park was chosen as the event site. The park's location 5 miles east of metropolitan Sarasota / Bradenton makes it easily accessible from Tampa / St. Petersburg. It also makes it an ideal location for an "Escape from Winter" triathlon for those living in the Northeastern United States.
The event is focusing on the athlete in several ways:
- • Two loop swim course to provide better monitoring of the athletes and allow families to see their athlete more frequently
- • Two loop bike course to make water bottle exchange and cheering sections easier for the athlete and their family
- • Lots of gear for those who participate: shirt, socks, finisher's medals, water bottle, fun awards and post-race food.
You are invited to be a part of this inaugural race of the TOUGHMAN National Series.
