Story via SarasotaDay.Com
The GNC Longboat Key Triathlon and Duathalon celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, and the well-respected sporting event remains high on the bucket list for those who enjoy pushing their bodies to the limit.
Forming a global nation, the triathletes who travel to Sarasota to take part in the annual endurance test will be once again be looking forward to a combination of luxury and limb-busting sporting bonhomie that can take the most fleet of foot up to 90 minutes to complete.
As with all triathlons, the ability to overcome the inevitable long-distance swimming, cycling and running endurance tests is paramount.
“It’s extremely competitive,” said Tony Driscoll, CEO of TDA Global Sports, the promoter for the event.
“But this is, for a triathlon, a very luxurious setting,” continued Driscoll. “It’s second to none. The athletes are treated to a luxurious reward for their commitment.”
And Driscoll insists Sarasota can go the extra mile in the face of competition.
“Many of the athlete’s want to test themselves in Sarasota simply because this triathlon takes care of all the participants’ needs after the race is over. Why? Because most athletes will have experienced the usual attitude of ‘Hey, well done for finishing. Here’s a bottle of water and a banana.’
“This event is far from that business model,” Driscoll said.
“This triathlon is an upscale event that attracts athletes who want to compete,” Driscoll continued. “But they also want their sense of achievement recognized.
“I don’t care if they’re professional or amateur athletes. I’ll make sure they are rewarded for their efforts.”
