The first race of three in the 2013 ITU Pan American Cup is The Draft-Legal Challenge at Clermont on March 9, 2013 in Clermont, Florida. The race venue is located inside Lake Louisa State Park.

Race Distances:
750 meter swim / 20k bike / 5k run

The race venue located inside of the Lake Louisa State Park offers an ideal place for a draft legal race. Just a short drive from Orlando, Lake Louisa State Park is noted for its six beautiful lakes, rolling hills, and scenic landscapes. Lake Louisa is the largest in a chain of 13 lakes connected by the Palatlakaha River, which is designated as an Outstanding Florida Waterway.

The entire race course is closed to traffic. The 750 meter swim takes place from a beach start in a clear lake with average temperature ranging in the 60's F. Wetsuits are recommended. Following the swim, the race will take athletes on a four loop bike course on a well paved and fast road. After completing the 20k bike course, athletes will complete two loops of the run course.

Spectators will have plenty of areas to cheer on their family and friends throughout this thrilling race!
