Race Day Schedule

JAX Olympic & Sprint Triathlon at Camp Blanding (45 minutes from downtown Jax!)
 
DRC Sports announces the JAX Triathlon FINALLY returns with one AWESOME event. HERE'S THE STORY: We have been waiting all summer for City approval to go ahead downtown, but with COVID restrictions, they couldn't grant it to us until it was approved by the administration. We started looking for other venues in July and when the Hammerhead's had to cancel their 2020 event, we called Susan and asked if we could borrow her site for a year. Susan graciously gave us her blessing and we finally had options! By the time the city was able to release the Landing property, the waterways division was already under contract to begin construction on the riverfront dock system beginning in October (of course) which would likely cause us to cancel the swim. We met with the good folks at Camp Blanding and discussed our new COVID Protocols. They agreed and we are now able to hold the event this year!  I know many of you are missing out on racing with so many events cancelling. We wanted to make this event happen and even though it's been through a lot of changes, we are excited to provide you with at least one more event to do this season.
 
REGISTERED ATHLETE WILL RECEIVE A COMPREHENSIVE ATHLETE INFORMATION PACKET ON THURSDAY, OCT 22nd, INCLUDING BIB NUMBER, MANDATORY HEALTH SCREENING SURVEY, PACKET PICKUP ASSIGNMENTS AND WAVE START TIMES.

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.
