Winter is running season in South Florida! While we take a break from Tri training for the winter we’ll meet on Saturday mornings for a run along Fort Lauderdale Beach. We’ll meet and start at the Starbucks on Sunrise. The distance is flexible. It's an out and back run so you can turn around at any point. Run 5 miles to the south end of the beach or run 5k (3.1 miles) to Castillo street and back. There are restrooms and a water fountain at the 2.5 mile turnaround point (Southbeach parking lot restrooms) where you can drink or refill your water bottle. Everyone goes at their own pace and we’ll hang out at the Starbucks afterwards till everyone has returned. (Of course you can go for a longer distance but we might not be at the Starbucks anymore when you return. Consider starting earlier.)
Please have a good look at the map and the photos posted below so you know where to turn around.
Please join us no matter what shape you’re currently in. If you plan on doing your first Triathlon next year but you feel a bit intimidated by starting all 3 disciplines at the same time then this is a good way to ease into it. Meet Triathletes, get tips and start building up your endurance over the winter. Start adding the other disciplines when our Sunday Tri training starts up again next year and you’ll be ready for the Tri season.
Directions: please click on the location "Starbucks" above to get to a map. The Starbucks is on Sunrise Blvd in the same parking lot as Publix. It's across the Street from the Galleria Mall. If you've crossed the Intracoastal bridge you've gone too far.
