5-21-2023 Important Notes

Hi Athletes,


Thank you for registering for the Mack Cycle 305 Triathlon & State Championship on Key Biscayne.  You will find Crandon Park to be an absolutely beautiful venue for our event!  There are a few things I’d like to share with you in advance of the event:

  1. Packet Pickup is Wednesday - Friday from 12pm to 6pm at Mack Cycle in Miami and on Saturday from 10am to 4pm.  More info below.
  2. You MUST pay for parking or you will get a ticket.  Go to and enter location 46252 upon arrival to pay for parking.
  3. Olympic Distance Cutoffs - In order to complete the Olympic distance you need to be able to complete the swim in under 42 minutes (45 minutes for a mile), bike 15 mph average including the bridge, and run 13 minutes per mile.  If you aren’t sure if you can do this, please switch to the sprint distance as we have hard cutoffs to open the roadway back up.
  4. Kids Splash & Dash - Check-in is Saturday at Mack Cycle or race morning between 7:00 and 7:30.  This is an untimed event just for fun.  All kids get medals for finishing and get race number tattoos and a USAT draw string backpack at check-in.  Click here for the 7-10 year old course (8:00 start) and click here for the 11-15 year old course (8:15 start).
  5. Information on the Club Championship and current participation standings can be found at:  USAT has provided a banner to award to the top club overall and the top club in participation.  Tri2One appears to have an insurmountable lead in participation.  We'll see who wins in performance.  The top 10 racers in each club score performance points.
  6. USAT has NEW RULES in regards to drafting distance and penalty enforcement.  Click here for more information.
  7. Parking Entrance - The traffic counter flow to remove cars from our side of the Causeway will start at the Crandon north entrance, THUS you will need to enter the park at the 2nd Crandon entrance (blue line).  Here’s a link to the directions:  You will turn left as soon as you enter the park to go to lot #2 on the north side of the park (see map). 

    Right click on image and open in new tab to zoom in.

    We will have an “EVENT PARKING” sign where you turn in and inside the park directing you left to the correct parking lot.

  8. THANK YOU Mack Cycle!  Please give a thank you to Mary Jane, Chris, and their team at Mack Cycle for their support of this event.  Without their support, this event would not be possible.

  9. No Dogs - Sorry, Crandon Park does not allow dogs, so please leave Fido at home.

You will announce your race number to the starter (also doing manual backup timing) then run across the start timing mat once the starter tells you to ‘GO’.

Other Important Items to Remember

Bikes will turn left to enter the park at the north entrance (red line) and exit the park at the northernmost exit (green line) (see map).  Here’s the link to the course: The Olympic distance will do this three times and the sprint distance once. 

Right click on image and open in new tab to zoom in.

The swim is the safest ocean swim you could possibly do. The reason for this is that most of the areas at Crandon are very shallow. We will swim in a relatively narrow channel that is deeper than the surrounding water (see Google Earth image below - the dark narrow area is deeper than the surrounding area).

If you swim either away from or towards the shoreline you will encounter shallower waters if you’d like to take a break. This is why we don’t have a different shaped course as this is the ONLY area deep enough for swimming. Olympic distance participants (1500 meters) will swim down to the last buoy, then return to the first buoy, then back down again.  Sprint distance participants (500 meters) will swim from the first buoy to the last buoy.  Keep all buoys on your right.  Click here for sprint mapClick here for Olympic map.


Please exit the water before the first wave starts at 6:45 a.m.


The run course is a very scenic loop through Crandon Park. It is 3.1 miles long and Olympic Distance racers will do 2 loops (6.2mi), while Sprint racers will do 1 loop (3.1).

See the map at There will be a water station before mile 1 at the circle and again before mile 2 at the circle.


You will encounter the following very large sign on both the bike and run courses.  If you are in the SPRINT distance, follow the FINISH ARROW! 

If you are in the OLYMPIC distance, follow the LAP ARROW and do a 2nd lap (and 3rd lap on the bike only), then follow the FINISH ARROW to complete the bike or run.  IT IS VITAL THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THIS!  Volunteers have no way to know which lap you are on, so YOU AND ONLY YOU must be responsible to know if you need to complete another lap or not.  If you mess up and come in early, just go back out and do another lap.  We'll sort out the times and delete the extra chip times in the timing system.


Duathlon (run #1) - All duathletes will start at 7:00am just outside of the transition area. The first run will be ¾ of a mile and go down to the track, around the track, and back to transition.

See the map at

There is a permanent restroom facility right between the transition/finish area and the beach as indicated on the map above. It has about a dozen stalls for each gender. There is also an additional restroom facility on the way to the swim start (as indicated on the swim map) and several restrooms along the run course (one right next to the water station at the circle).


● The swim course must be completed by 7:50 a.m. (20 minutes after last sprint starter)
● Olympic Distance athletes must start the 3rd lap of the bike course by 8:47 am or you will be directed into transition where you can finish the race but be disqualified for not completing the entire race.
● All athletes must complete the bike course by 9:20 am.
● Olympic Distance athletes must start the 2nd run lap by 10:05 am.
