Ron Jon Cocoa Beach Triathlon Sunday, April 14 Location: Adjacent to the Cocoa Beach Country Club

The Ron Jon Cocoa Beach Triathlon has established itself as a fun and challenging event and as one of Coastal Florida’s favorite early season triathlons. The event draws a good mixture of Floridians and triathletes from more northern states anxious to escape the cold and get in a springtime race. It is an enjoyable one for established athletes, but has proven itself as a great test for first time triathletes. The event has twice been a “Best First Timer’s Race” national

finalist in the Triathlon Business International annual awards. It begins with a .25 mile swim, a 12.5 mile bike, and a run back to the finish line adjacent to the Country Club. Event medals and a post-race awards party with live music and lots of food and drink await all finishers.
