Thank you to the athletes, spectators, volunteers and City of Titusville for making the inaugural Rocketman Florida Triathlon a successful event! We will let you know via email and Facebook when we have news on next’s year’s event.
The inaugural Rocketman Florida Triathlon made history on May 5, 2013. This iconic triathlon is held on Central Florida’s Space Coast and marked the first time in history that Kennedy Space Center’s secured gates have been opened for a privately coordinated public sporting event.

Rocketman Florida Triathlon Race Distances
The Rocketman Florida Tri athletes will compete in a Classic +, International + and relay divisions – with each featuring a stunning bike ride inside the secured gates of the Kennedy Space Center and around all of America’s major space program landmarks. The KSC portion of the bike ride is more than 15 miles long, with the remainder of the course adjacent to the equally beautiful scenery of the Canaveral National Seashore and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
The “+” aspect of the Classic and International distance rides is due to the extra bicycle distance necessary to get all triathletes out and around the two Space Shuttle launch pads. Rather than the standard 19-mile and 24.8 mile bike distances, those athletes will instead both ride a bike course of approximately 34 miles.
- Classic + (7:30am start)
Swim 1/4 mile, Bike 33 miles, Run 3.1 miles
- International + (7:15am start)
Swim .93 miles, Bike 33 miles, Run 6.2 miles
- There will be no half iron in 2014.
The start, finish and transition area will be in downtown Titusville at the riverfront Space View Park.
While space is infinite, the space in our race is limited! Follow updates on Facebook for the registration announcement!
