DUNEDIN – Rotary Club officials are hoping to set a record of having more than 600 racers compete in the sixth Dunedin Triathlon.

The triathlon is set for Sunday, June 14, 7:30 a.m., at Honeymoon Island.

The triathlon includes a 1/4-mile swim, 12-mile bike race and a 3.1-mile run.

Preregistration fees for individuals are $60 though June 10. Register online at www.Dunedintriathlon.com. Online registration ends at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10.

Registration times at the site are Saturday, June 13, 12:30 to 4 p.m. and Sunday, June 14, 6 to 7 a.m. The fee is $65 on race weekend.

Relay teams of two or three are $120 through June 10 and $130 on race weekend.

Packet pickup is set for June 13, 12:30 to 4 p.m., at St. Alfred’s Church, 1601 Curlew Road, Palm Harbor.

The fourth leg transition clinic will be held just before packet pickup at 12:15 p.m., also at St. Alfred’s Church. The clinic for every athlete who wants to learn how to get through the transition aspect of the triathlon, is hosted by the American Running Company.

The event is hosted by the Rotary Club of Dunedin.

“It has become one of the premier sprint triathlon events in the Tampa Bay area,” said Rotary Club President Jonathan Skinner.

“This is the largest fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Dunedin, and funds raised will help to fund scholarships for local high school students, award grants for international projects such as sustainable aquaculture, help fund local Habitat for Humanity Projects, and several other local and international efforts,” said Sara McCullum, triathlon race director, in an e-mail.

Participants are asked to arrive on the island between 6 and 6:30 a.m. on race day. Parking staff will be on hand to direct people where to park as they arrive.

“There is no state park gate fee for registered participants and their guests and we expect about 1200 to 1500 people to come out for the event. After the race we try our best to put out a great menu of food and light beer to reward the athletes for all their efforts,” McCullum said.

The race will begin as close to 7:30 a.m. as possible.

“We have always been able to begin on time but as conditions change from year to year we will make adjustments to be sure as many people are at the swim start as possible to begin the race on time. After the anthem is sung, the first wave will take off at 7:30 am. Waves will be announced at packet pickup and throughout race morning,” the Web site for the triathlon said.

Participants in the event need to provide their own bicycles. They also are encouraged to bring a towel to lay their other items out in transition.
