2018 is shaping up to be another great Sea Turtle Triathlon on October 7th. The race staff is already busy getting everything prepared for race day. We are very thankful for all the support we get from our loyal sponsors, volunteers and the community to make this event possible. The Sea Turtle Triathlon isPensacola’s premiere youth triathlon. We expect another sell out event.
Race day is all about our youth athletes. There is no better way to get into the
race spirit than hearing first hand from our athletes. So we interviewed a local athlete.
We would like to introduce Dennis Fair, he has participated in the Sea Turtle Triathlon for the past 2 years. Dennis is 8 years old and in the 3rd grade at Gulf Breeze Elementary School.
Dennis races for the Kraken Triathlon Team. The Kraken Triathlon Team is open to ages 6 and above and they meet 2 times a week for coached practices. The athletes learn rules and how to complete each discipline in triathlon. The team tries to compete at least once a month and members are allowed to race other events. The athletes work to encourage each other and other athletes throughout a race. They also have a cool triathlon jersey!
