Escape to Miami SUP Race
Stand-up Paddle at Escape

The Life Time Escape to Miami Triathlon endures as one of the premiere triathlons taking place in Miami and the state of Florida. This year’s event ramps up with a stand-off by standing-up and paddle boarding (SUP) the Biscayne Bay and infamous Escape Island.

Local Miami SUP Athletes, “KK” Nolah-Toke and Koko-Holo, are former Escape to Miami Triathlon participants that found SUP as a way to actively “recover” and “reconnect” well past the Finish line. The Escape to Miami SUP race promises to challenge you to a paddle board only race event with the pro, elite and recreational participants the morning of Saturday, September 23rd, 2017.

Life Time, in partnership with Swim, Paddle, Run (SPR3®) encourages you to bring your family, friends, and neighbors to witness and document the fun in the sun as we escape from the shore of Margaret Pace Park and launch the inaugural Escape to Miami SUP Race.

Escape to Miami SUP Race in partnership with SPR3®, has a goal to introduce Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) to Triathlons (Tri) to engage the athlete as well as their family while enjoying the parks and waterways of Miami with the broader community.
