It is time again for the biggest fitness festival in South Florida: TYR Wodapalooza! 

Thousands of people are descending upon Miami to compete, spectate, and volunteer from January 11-14. 

There’s plenty happening in and around Bayfront Park, and we have you covered on how to best take it all in. With three competition floors (Flagler, Bayside, and Tina Hills), a food court and viewing garden, a podcast stage, a VIP beach, and vendor village, spectators will never get bored.

Pro tip: Download the official TYR WZA 2023 app, which makes it easy to stay updated with heat times, sign up for spectator experiences, and buy tickets.

  • Remember, parking is minimal at Bayfront Park, so Uber or Lyft will be your best bet if heading to the venue.

And best of all, Thursday is FREE admission!
