Race Day Schedule

JAX Olympic & Sprint Triathlon at Metro Park, Downtown Jacksonville!
 
DRC Sports announces the JAX Triathlon transitions from a series to one AWESOME event.  After a successful move to from Amelia Island to Downtown Jacksonville, the feedback couldn't be better and support for this event will continue to grow. We want to make this event the largest in the Southeast and one everyone will want on their race schedule in 2019.  As many of you know, the City of Jacksonville has purchased the Landing and is converting that property to a city park. This year RACE CENTRAL will be at the Riverfront Metropolitan Park located across from TIAA Stadium. This is a spacious venue and perfect for the event. Course changes are minimal and parking is plentiful.

USA Triathlon has selected the JAX Triathlon as the Florida State Championship Event for Age Group and High School.  All athletes are eligible to participate.

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.
