One of the longest running triathlons in the state of Florida takes place right in our backyard at Carlin Park in Jupiter. Participants have been competing in the Jupiter Medical Center Loggerhead Triathlon, produced by the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce, since 1985, putting this oceanside challenge on the southeast race circuit bucket-list for some of the top triathletes throughout the United States. Each year, more than 600 athletes participate in the Loggerhead Triathlon, with more than 150 volunteers providing support.
The event is Saturday, August 4th, 2018. Beginning at Carlin Park in Jupiter, FL at 7:00am, the race course consists of a 3/8 mile ocean swim, followed by a 13 mile bike, and finished by a flat 3.1 mile run. Awards are given to the top 3 overall in each division.
In 2017, Steve Jackson of Jupiter placed 1st overall, followed by John Reback of North Palm Beach in 2nd place, and Cliff Drusinsky of Jupiter in 3rd place. Linda Robb of North Palm Beach placed 1st overall in the women’s division, followed by Nicole Sierra of Palm Beach Gardens in 2nd place and Erica Lazarus in 3rd place.
