The Middle Distance race starts with a 1.2-mile, one-loop swim in the calm waters of Lake Lloyd, within sight of the iconic Daytona International Speedway track. Athletes will enter the water via a grass ramp, swim a single counter-clockwise loop, and exit via ramp to the Transition Area. The water temperature in Lake Lloyd is typically between 68 and 72 degrees.

Bike Course

After a quick transition, you’ll enjoy an unprecedented opportunity to race two and a half laps around Daytona International Speedway by bike. Next, you’ll race around the track two and half times and exit out the track after turn two with a move that will send you off onto the course like a rocket. You’ll race on roads named after celebrated NASCAR drivers, adding inspiration to an already exciting ride. On the journey we will take you out west on Highway 92 in fully protected lanes both out and on your return to the Daytona International Speedway to begin the run.
