St. Anthony’s Triathlon

The St. Pete MAD DOGS have always had a love of St. Anthony’s Triathlon, and the event is one of the highlights of our social and racing season. Each year, we throw both a Pre-Race Dinner/Social and a Post Race Party, host many professional triathletes as homestays, and ask our membership to consider volunteering at a water stop during the 6.2 mile run on race day.

Dates change each year so check the events calendar for this year’s times and dates.

Look for early registration as an active Mad Dog at our November Anniversary Party at Caddys on Central.

We typically have 100+ athletes at our Wednesday Night Swim and Social the week before.

Would you like to homestay a pro athlete? Opportunities are available in March/April.

The Friday before St. A’s, the Mad Dogs are proud to host a free pre-race pasta dinner/social. What a perfect event to attend just after packet pick-up and bike check-in!

Just after Sunday’s race, we have a free post-race party, complete with food, beer and music.
