MIAMI – This Memorial Day Weekend, Homestead-Miami Speedway will host a race unique to the type typically seen at the South Florida racetrack. The Speedway is trading in cars and haulers for bicycles and swim goggles, for the “Mack Cycle Miami Man Triathlon presented by Florastor”, a half iron triathlon, which will be run on Sunday, May 24. Participants will complete a 1.2-mile swim in the infield lake, 56-mile bike ride beginning with a lap around the track, and 13.1-mile run before returning to Victory Lane for the finish line.

Miami Man Speedway features a clean and clear lake swim with no currents – right in the infield of Homestead-Miami Speedway. The fast cycling course begins with a lap around the 1.5-mile oval that hosts NASCAR’s championships, then courses through the surrounding rural areas of Homestead with virtually no vehicular traffic, followed by a run to the finish line and Victory Lane back inside the infield of the Speedway, where an award ceremony will be held.For more information including course maps and registration information, visit www.multirace.us.
