The Great Floridian Triathlon's two-lap format allows for both a 1/2 and a full 140.6 distance triathlon. The GFT Half Distance offers all the fun of the full distance, with only half the work! Because this event uses the same course cut-off times as the full distance, Half Distance athletes have more time to complete the distance than a typical 70.3 race. 

This race is a great training event for late season 140.6 events.

Aqua Bike:

The Aqua Bike event is a swim-bike race that has a 1.2 mile swim followed by the 59 mile bike. Aqua Bike events are great for athletes who want to avoid running and also make great training events. 


The long-distance duathlon features a 3.1 mile run, 59 mile bike, and a 13.1 mile run.

*All courses and distances subject to change.


All GFT events share the same courses.  The half distance triathletes complete one lap of the swim, one lap of the bike course, and the first two laps of the run course.  Please click here for additional course information and maps.   


A well executed event with great support and volunteers, chip timing with tracking, participant shirt, Friday morning Breakfast of Champions, and great post race food,  All 1/2 GFT finishers will also receive a finisher shirt and super cool commemorative finisher medal.


Custom Awards will be presented to the top three overall finishers, top masters finishers, and the top three finishers in each five year division, male and female. In the Aqua Bike and Duathlon events, awards will be presented to the top five finishers, male and female.
