DRC Sports announces the JAX Triathlon FINALLY returns with this AWESOME event.  JAX Olympic & Sprint Triathlon at Camp Blanding.
 

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 had to cancel their 2020 event, we called Susan Wallis (HOT Promoter) and asked if we could borrow her site for a year. She graciously gave us her blessing and we 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 and race plans. They agreed and we are now able to hold the event this year at Camp Blanding!  I know many of you miss racing with so many events cancelling and that is why we never gave up. 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. So.....LET'S RACE!!!
 
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.
 
Spectators: Friends and Family that want to attend, YOU MUST register to get on base!


ENTRY TO CAMP BLANDING PROCEDURES:   All athletes will check in at the front gate. You will receive a "Gate Pass" that will be included with your athlete packet, which will be sent to you the Thursday prior to the race.  Present this pass to speed the entry process.  Your name will be on the Triathlon Roster. You will need a non-expired Photo ID. Any family or friends that would like to come on base to watch MUST go to the registration website above, click the "Register" button and complete the VISITOR/GUEST PASS REQUEST by midnight on Wednesday, October 21st. Their name will then be on the roster at the front gate, they'll present their photo ID and they will be allowed access to the race. Family and friends will not be required to sign a race waiver. AGAIN....FAMILY & FRIENDS WISHING TO ATTEND THE EVENT MUST REGISTER AT THE WEBSITE BY WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21st, so their name(s) will be on the roster. If they do not, they will NOT be allowed access to Camp Blanding.  NO EXCEPTIONS can be made.
