_ The 2020 Great Floridan Endurance Festival:
Experience Florida's premier endurance event and the oldest independent full distance triathlon in North America, the Great Floridian Triathlon at the new Victory Pointe venue in Clermont. Celebrating it's 30th year, the GFT features three distances, the Ultra Distance (140.6 mi), the 2/3rd Distance (87.3 mi), and the 1/3rd Distance (51.4 mi). In addition we also offer a Relay Option (2-3 People) for all Distances, an Aqua Bike for all Distances, a 15K Sunset Run, and a 2.4 mi Swim.
The Great Floridian Swim Course is a .8 mile triangular course. The 2.4 mile swimmers will swim 3 laps, the GFT 2/3 swimmers 2 laps, and the GFT 1/3 swimmers will swim one lap of the .8 mile course.
The 112 mile course is a three loop course. This year the first lap is 42 miles and laps 2 and 3 are each 35 miles. Each bike lap will travel up Sugarloaf Mountain. The GFT 1/3 Distance race will only complete the first 42 mile segment of the course. The 2/3 Distance race will complete the first two laps of the bike course for a total of 77 miles. Each lap of the bike has three support stations along the course. The 112 mile cyclists will also have a special needs station with support at the end of laps 1 & 2. Each support station will have water, gatorade, and bananas.
The GFT run course is a scenic out and back course on the South Lake Trail. The GFT 140.6 marathon course is a three lap course, while the GFT 2/3 will complete two laps of the course and GFT 1/3 Distance will only complete one lap of the course. The scenic course is completely on the South Lake Trail and is mostly flat. The course is very spectator friendly allowing spectators at Waterfront Park and Victory Pointe to cheer the 26.2 mile runners on six times before the finish. This year's finish line for all distances will be on Minneola Ave., adjacent to Suncreek Brewery in Downtown Clermont.
Support stations are located approximately every mile and are stocked with water, Gatorade, ice, cola, fruit, cookies, salty snacks, broth (after dark, and more. A run special needs station is located at the park and 26.2 mile runners have the ability to access it multiple times during the race.
