Past Bill Bone Tropical Triathlon Event

The Bill Bone Tropical Triathlon was held at 7:15 a.m., Sunday, October 22, 2023, at Lake Worth Beach Park, 10 South Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth Beach, Florida 33460.

Now in its 25th year, it was the featured athletic event of Lake Worth Beach, bringing together seasoned tri-athletes and newcomers of all ages to compete outdoors. The race was a USA Triathlon-sanctioned sprint—that’s a 0.25-mile swim, followed by 13 miles on the bike, and capped by a 5K run.

But the course was what made it so special: They started at dawn. They faced east—toward the rising sun and the ocean. Then they headed from the barrier island to the mainland via the Intracoastal bridge, toured the quaint downtown Lake Worth Beach, and wound up with views of the local Snook Island nature preserve.

This event benefited the award-winning Air Force JROTC program at Lake Worth Community High School. Students in the program had a higher graduation rate than the general student body, stayed out of trouble, and volunteered their time for worthy local causes. In fact, did you know that students in the program volunteered to keep our racing community safe by serving as safety team members throughout the racecourse?
