The run portion of the race is setup around the beautiful north side of the campus and passes straight through UNF's Slough Preserve. In the middle of the competition participants will transition into the UNF Aquatic Center pool for the swim. After the swim, competitors will transition back into their running gear for the final leg. This race is for ages 16 and up that have the ability to swim at least 50 yards (2 laps) non-stop. Participants can challenge themselves with this competition which is made for the beginning tri-athlete, someone training for an upcoming triathlon or anyone looking to try a race with an added hurdle. This will be a competitive event that will be governed by the rules of USA Triathlon. We hope to have a great race and have a lot of fun!xml version='1.0' encoding='%SOUP-ENCODING%'
