We are pleased to offer a Youth Elite Cup in Sarasota. This Youth Elite Cup is a draft-legal super-sprint distance triathlon open to athletes 13 to 15 years old. The competition distances are 375 meter swim, 10 kilometer (2x5k laps) bike, and 2.5k run. Youth Elite Cups help prepare athletes for Junior Elite competition when they turn 16. These events serve as the qualifiers for the Youth Elite National Championships. 

Coaches and Parents - we have a designated swim familiarization for our Youth Elite Cup competitors on Friday from 2:00 – 2:20 pm. There is no designated BIKE familiarization. If athletes would like to check out the bike course it is our recommendation that athletes cycle around the park at 4:15 pm (or later) on Saturday. Note: Cattleman Road will be open to traffic so use the existing park bike paths. The athlete briefing will start at 5:00 pm on Saturday.
