Escape From Ft. Desoto


Welcome new and returning Escape participants! 2019 marks the 32nd year for the Escape from Ft. De Soto Triathlon. This year we are again proud to offer one of the best sprint triathlons in Florida, and back again is a duathlon. To those of you who have done the event before, welcome back. To those new to the event, you may be interested to know that the park is ranked one of the top-ten beaches in the United States; nine hundred unspoiled acres surround you. First timers, we anticipate that you will have a great first triathlon at Ft. De Soto. To all, we ask that you enjoy the surroundings and please leave the park cleaner than you found it.

The Sprint Distance is a 1/2 Mile Swim, a 10 Mile Bike, and a 5k Run on a marked course

The Duathlon is 1.5 Mile Run, a 10 mile bike, and a 5k Run on a marked course.
