Ironman Triathlon - Held in November

Gulf Coast Triathlon - Held in May

Both the Gulf Coast and the Ironman triathlons run through the Park.  If the waters are too treacherous, the Ironman will use Grand Lagoon for the swim segment with runners entering and leaving the water near the Park boat launch.

Volunteers direct runners in traffic during both events. Volunteers also help with crowd control, environmental protection, trash pick ups, and driving the Park course to be sure there are no runners in trouble.  Additional volunteers are needed to keep the Park open after hours for the Ironman run and to open early if the swim takes place in the Park.
