**WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSELY MONITORING THE POTENTIAL WEATHER CONDITIONS FOR RACE DAY. At this point we have no intention of cancelling the race. If it does turn out to be a safety issue, we would reschedule OR change to a duathlon. We will keep this website updated with any changes as well as via email as we make any decisions going forward. Thank you for your patience. **
The Loggerhead Triathlon is one of the longest enduring triathlons in the state of Florida. Dating back to 1985, triathletes have made the trip to Jupiter year after year to enjoy the magnificent Oceanside setting, the family-friendly atmosphere, and the competition. Jointly sponsored by the Triathlon Club of the Palm Beaches and the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, the event has become a “must do” on the southeast race circuit and has spawned some of the top triathletes in the United States.
The Loggerhead Triathlon will be held on Saturday, August 6th beginning at 7:00am at Carlin Park in Jupiter, FL. The race course consists of a 3/8 mile ocean swim, 13 mile bike and flat 3.1 mile run. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall in each division.
