7am Half Iron start 

This iconic triathlon will be competed on Central Florida’s Space Coast and is the first major public sporting event ever held on the Kennedy Space Center. 

Open to a limited field, athletes will compete in a Classic +, International + and Half Iron distance, with each featuring a stunning bike ride inside the secured gates of the Kennedy Space Center and around America’s major space program landmarks.  The KSC portion of the bike ride is more than 23 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 32 miles.  

The start, finish and transition area for The Rocketman will be at the Astronaut Hall of Fame.

The race will officially end 5 hours after the final wave start. 


  • Classic +: Swim 1/4 mile, Bike approx 29 miles, Run 3.5 miles
