Welcome to the 2016 Hammerhead Olympic Triathlon (aptly named the HOT, and not just because of the acronym) and HOT Sprint Triathlon! The events are held at the beautiful Camp Blanding Military Reservation, which is about 30 miles southwest of Jacksonville (between Jacksonville and Gainesville – see the map for directions). The swim will be in Kingsley Lake which is one of the Florida’s pristine waterways (no salt water, no sharks!) and usually very smooth for a fast race. The bike course will be entirely within Camp Blanding with little if any traffic, but with a few rolly-polly hills (two loops – one loop for the Sprint distance). The run will be a flat out and back (with little shade) but with plenty of aid stations.

Do not wait to sign up!  Both the Olympic and Sprint races have limited capacity and they fill every year.  We maintain a waiting list, but do not wait until the last minute to sign up for this awesome event!
