USAT Rule Book

Welcome to the Hammerhead Olympic Triathlon (aptly named the HOT, and not just because of the acronym) and HOT Sprint Triathlon! The events are held at the beautiful Camp Blanding Joint Training Center, which is about 30 miles southwest of Jacksonville (between Jacksonville and Gainesville – see the map for directions). The swim will be in Kingsley Lake which is one of the Florida’s pristine waterways (no salt water, no sharks!) and usually very smooth for a fast race. The bike course will be entirely within Camp Blanding with little if any traffic, but with a few rolly-polly hills (two loops – one loop for the Sprint distance). The run will be a flat out and back (with little shade) but with plenty of aid stations. Endurnace Concepts - J.C. Pinto is the "Official Training Partner" for the 2021 HOT.

USAT Event

USAT athletes must provide a valid USAT# and present their USAT card & photo ID at registration. A $50 Annual license can be purchased at www.usatmembership.com (For athletes under 17 years of age, price is $10 for an annual membership) Non-USAT licensed athletes must purchase the $15 one-day license. This is available during on-line registration.

The USAT Age rule requires that all participants race by birth year rather than their age on race day. This means your race age will be the same for all sanctioned events for an entire calendar year. The age group of a participant will be determined by age on Dec. 31 of the event year, not by age on race day. For example: If you turn 25 years old in July, you will race and be ranked in the 25-29 age group for the entire season.
