4-23-2023 Important Notes

Hi Athletes,


Thank you for registering for the Ocean Key Triathlon 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 from 10am to 2pm at City Bikes in Aventura on Saturday.  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. 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). 

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

  4. THANK YOU CITY BIKES!  Please give a thank you to Jaime and his team at City Bikes for their support of this event.  Without their support, this event would not be possible.

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

Start Times
Racers in each group will begin starting one person at a time at the specified start time. Do not line up until your group is called. Starting will be done approximately every 2-3 seconds. 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 international distance will do this twice. 

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. International distance participants will start at the swim exit, go out and around the green buoy, swim down keeping the orange buoys on their right, u-turn around the last green buoy, swim back keeping the orange buoys on their right, then go around the last green buoy and back to through the swim exit chute.

SEE MAP The orange buoys are place to create a gap between international racers swimming in different directions.

Sprint distance participants will only swim one direction, keeping all buoys on their right then exit the water (see map).


Please exit the water before the first wave starts at 7:00 a.m.


The run course is a very scenic loop through Crandon Park. It is 3.1 miles long and International Distance racers will do 2 loops, while Sprint racers will do 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 INTERNATIONAL distance, follow the LAP ARROW and do a 2nd lap, then follow the FINISH ARROW to complete the bike or run.  IT IS VITAL THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THIS!  Volunteers have no way to know if you are on lap 1 or lap 2, 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 after lap 1, just go back out and do your 2nd 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 7:15 a.m. 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).


Please exit the water before the first wave starts at 7:00 a.m.


● The swim course must be completed by 7:50 a.m. (20 minutes after last sprint starter)
● International Distance athletes must start the 2nd bike lap by 8:17 a.m. (1:08 from the last starter) 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 9:00 a.m.
● International Distance athletes must start the 2nd run lap by 9:30 a.m.
