Why the GFT?

30 YEARS OF TRIATHLONS
Clermont has a rich history with the sport of triathlon. In 1984 we launched the Great Clermont Triathlon and put Clermont, Florida on the world triathlon map. The following year the Florida Challenge Triathlon, a 70.3 distance triathlon was born, The Great Floridian Triathlon was introduced in 1991, making it the 2nd oldest iron-distance race in the continental U.S.  More than 200 triathlons have been staged at clermont's Waterfront Park including several National Championships.
WE CARE ABOUT THE ATHLETES
Athletes always come first at the Great Floridian Triathlon. The Sommer Sports team strives to make your GFT race experience the best possible.  If you are tired of feeling like you are just a number in one of the big branded races, you'll love the home town feel and attention you'll receive at the GFT.
THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO
Clermont, located on the countryside of Orlando, is centrally located in the heart of Florida.  Major tourist attractions Like Disney World, Sea World & Universal Studios are only 30 minutes away, and the ocean beaches are just over an hour's drive. If you are a nature lover, there are plenty of natural attractions closeby including springs, trails, kayaking, birding, & lot's more.  
THE GFT IS A GREAT DEAL
The early registration fee for the GFT Ultra is less than half the fee charged for an Ironman branded race. October is the off season here in Central Florida so accommodations are plentiful and less expensive.
