Escape to Miami Triathlon FAQ's

When is it?

September 22, 2019

What is it?

Escape to Miami is a triathlon and has two different distance options to choose from:

  1. Sprint:

              Swim – 0.4 KM/0.25 Miles

              Bike – 21 KM/13 Miles

              Run – 5 KM/3.1 Miles

  1. Olympic:

              Swim – 1.5 KM/0.9 Miles

              Bike – 40 KM/24.8 Miles

              Run – 10 KM/6.2 Miles

 

OMG that sounds like a lot, do I have to do all that?

No!  There is a relay option!  You can pick just one of the three sports.  Just partner with your friends and you can create a relay team where each of you does one or more part of the event.

 

Can you pair me with others for a relay team?

Unfortunately, we cannot create the relay teams for you, but there are several local triathlon groups that you can reach out to in order to find partners.

I’m not interested in racing, is there anything else I can do to help?

Oh boy, is there!  We desperately need volunteers and donations!!  

Below are just some of the things we need help with:

  • Help with getting the word out and encouraging donations.

  • Help with getting more volunteers!  We can’t have too many on race day!

  • Help with equipment like inflatable boats, race chairs, etc.

  • Help assisting our athletes with things like transitioning from one sport to another

  • Help with snacks and water breaks in between sports

  • Help with photography!  We are looking for a drone specialist and photographers.

 

I’m a differently abled athlete (Rider) and I’ve never been pulled in a swim or bike or pushed on a run.  Can I try it before I decide?

Yes!  We are going to schedule training sessions where you can try it out before registering.

 

I’m a differently abled athlete (Rider) and interested in the event, but I don’t want to do the swim.  Is that ok?

Absolutely.  We totally understand if you do not want to participate in the swim.  You don’t have to. You can just participate in the bike and run if you would like.  It would be great if you give it a try at on of our practice sessions before making a decision.

 

Is there a discount code to register?

We don’t have it yet, but we are working on it.  We will send it out to everyone that is on our list or lets us know they are in!

 

I’m already registered, can I still work with Special Compass?

You bet you can!  Just forward your registration to us and we will work with the race directors to get you transferred to our team!
