In celebration of the 25th running of the Great Floridian Triathlon (GFT) on Oct. 24, 2015, all official finishers of the full distance race, from 1991 to present, will receive a complimentary entry into the 2015 race. This special complimentary entry offer is available to all official individual finishers of the full, 140.6 mile course, from 1991-2014.
Also as part of this 25th birthday promotion, new entrants can enter the full distance race for only $250. That’s about one third of the cost of a typical iron-distance race. Both offers expire Nov. 12, 2014. “The Great Floridian Triathlon has always been the peoples race,” race founder and director Fred Sommer said in the announcement. “In appreciation of the tremendous support offered by age group athletes over the past 24 years we felt it would be great if we gave something back to the athletes. At the same time we are hoping the excitement associated with the 25th birthday celebration will expose the GFT to new triathletes who may only be aware of the corporate run, branded full-distance races.”
