Escape From Ft. Desoto

Details

After discussions with several park officials it has been concluded there's no guarantee that the social distancing rules will allow events of this size to assemble by the May 30th date we had planned. Like you we are ready to race and we want to be safe and act responsibly.

The 35th Annual Escape from Fort Desoto Triathlon, Duathlon, and Aquabike is rescheduled for July 18th, 2020. Top Gun Triathlon will move to September 26th, 2020. Lycra and Lace will likely be December 5th or 12th.

We are busy working out all the details in making this event happen this year. We will have more specific information early next week and there will be options to transfer to the Top Gun or Lycra and Lace races, or to the 2021 Escape from Fort Desoto Triathlon.

Thank you for patience as we work through this. This is going to be another great race and we look forward to seeing you out at the fort in July.

Welcome new and returning Escape participants! 2020 marks the 35th 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. This year we are proud to announce an AquaBike event as well!

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.

The Aqua-Bike is 1/2 Mile Swim and a 10 mile bike.
