The triathlon race consists of one and a half mile of kayaking, seven miles of bicycling and two miles of running.

The kayaking portion of the race has become popular because there are a large number of kayakers living in central Florida. Ideally it promotes participation from the age groups that Ozello Adventure Race accepts-- participants from 14 years and older.
