Over 1,600 people participated in the annual Publix Escape to Miami Triathlon on September 25, 2011. The Olympic race began at 7am with competitors swimming 1.5K in open water from “Escape Island,” to the mainland at Margaret Place park, where they rode bikes for 40k, and ended the race with a 10k run, and a shorter race began at 8:45. This race is considered to be one of the premiere races of the state, and registration was filled up before the event began. Some people decided to “relay” the event, having a three person team each handling one event. Cayla Nimmo//Assistant Photo Editor
