Mar 14, 2016, 14:38 ET from South Beach Triathlon

2,500 athletes expected to test body and spirit amidst the beauty of South Beach; Registration open

MIAMI, March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- The 2016 South Beach Triathlon, produced and presented by Life TimeSM – The Healthy Way of Life Company and part of the 11-race Life Time Tri Series, is returning on Sunday, April 3 with the gorgeous backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean and Miami Beach's Art Deco district. The race serves as a fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The South Beach Triathlon has raised more than $1.5 million for the kids of St. Jude.

The premium race experience includes triathlon challenges held at the Classic and International distances. Both begin with a salt-water swim off the shores of South Beach, followed by a bike ride across the MacArthur and Julia Tuttle Causeways back and forth into Miami and a run through the South Beach Art Deco District.

In addition, the South Beach Triathlon weekend offers a series of support events:

  • Terrier Tri Swim Clinic on Saturday, April 2 at 8:30 a.m. at the 10th Street lifeguard stand on South Beach
  • St. Jude Tot Trot on Sunday, April 3 at 10 a.m. featuring a 50-yard beach dash for children ages 3-5 and a 100-yard dash for children ages 6-9; all proceeds support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Now in its ninth year, individuals, relay teams and corporate teams are encouraged to commit to raise funds for the world renowned research hospital. Doing so allows them to participate as 'St. Jude Heroes' and helps to ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.

The South Beach Triathlon also features the CEO Challenge for business owners, Presidents and C-Level executives of companies with at least $1 million in annual revenue.
