DRC Sports and JumpingFish present Jacksonville’s first marathon St. Johns River open water race. Jacksonville’s Up the River Downtown 10k and new this year the 1 Mile Open Water Race starts at Jacksonville University on the beach and finishes at Riverside Arts Market at the Fuller Warren Bridge. The swim takes the athlete under the Hart Bridge, the Matthews Bridge, past the Stadium, through the Main Street Bridge, and under the Acosta and Railroad bridges. Up the River Downtown grew out of the JumpingFish five-annual exhibition and group swims of the same name. A unique way to tour downtown Jacksonville!
