6:30am start

MAKE HISTORY and join us for the Rocketman Florida Triathlon on May 5, 2013.  This iconic triathlon will be competed on Central Florida’s Space Coast and is the first major public sporting event ever held on theKennedySpaceCenter. 

The Rocketman  Triathlon offers three separate race distances – Classic +, International + and Half Iron – with each featuring a stunning bike ride inside the secured gates of the Kennedy Space Center and around all of America’s major space program landmarks.  The KSC portion of the bike ride is more than 15 miles long with the remainder adjacent to the equally beautiful scenery of the Canaveral National Seashore and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

The “+” aspect of the Classic and International distance rides is due to the extra bicycle distance necessary to get all triathletes out and around the two Space Shuttle launch pads.  Rather than the standard 19-mile and 24.8 mile bike distances, those athletes will instead both ride a bike course of approximately 34 miles.  Competitors in the Half distance race, will ride the usual 56-mile route.

The start, finish and transition area for The Rocketman will be in downtown Titusville at the riverfront Space View Park.

The race will officially end 8 hours and 30 minutes after the final wave start.
