Prepare to Lose Your Breath

In our Internet-based culture, it can be difficult to get the family together around a heaping bowl of Hamburger Helper, let alone some actual physical activity. And when it is time for some action, your kids want to play basketball with their friends, not you. We can bet that your stories of Dr. J dribbling down the court, shooting into peach baskets, and wearing tight shorts don’t make them any more willing to play one-on-one with you. If you want the chance to bond with your rug rats over some good ol’ competitive fun, visit and register the fam for two days of athletics that’ll have you yelling “Go, Junior!” in no time. It doesn’t matter if your level is pro, novice, or not-doing-this — the Publix Family Fitness Weekend is designed to bring you and yours together in the name of — what else? — family and fitness.

The triathlon puts you on a 5K journey of swimming the Atlantic Ocean, biking the MacArthur Causeway, and running the streets of South Beach. What’s that you say? You’re not ready to take on all three? Well, try out the Open Water Swim or the Duathlon or even just the 5K Grand Prix. Whether you walk, run, bike, or swim to the finish line, we’ll love you because you tried. Visit the website for registration and a schedule of events.
