Spectators

Come and cheer on your athlete -- and everyone competing in the Galloway Captiva Tri! Click here for a spectator map.

The resort will be open to the public for the race morning, and we encourage spectators to park at the south end and use the resort shuttles to come up to the north end where the race takes place. Since parking is limited on the north end, we reserve it for the athletes who are bring in equipment that isn't very shuttle-friendly. Resort staff will guide people to available parking and shuttles.

The important thing to remember is that the roads on the island -- from Blind Pass to the north end of the resort -- close to all traffic at 6:45 a.m. So spectators need to be on the north end of the island by 6:45 a.m. at the very latest... so, given the traffic we've seen in past years, the earlier they arrive the better.
