The annual Jake’s Triathlon brings triathletes from across the globe to Jamaica in the name of fun and friendly competition that pushes the limits of athleticism along the way. When you’re looking for a vacation destination that promises sun, fun, and sand galore, there’s no place better on the map than the Caribbean island of Jamaica. This sunny and scenic place is bound to bring endless opportunities for encounters with stunning nature, amazing food, and friendly faces. However, Jamaica is also an island steeped in tradition and talent. Of all the diverse events the island hosts year-round, none quite carries the same level of prestige and passion as Jake’s Off-Road Triathlon.
A Race that Inspires
With 25-years in the books, Jake’s is proud to be the world’s longest running off road triathlon in 2019. This year, participants will make their way to Jamaica for a chance at first place on Saturday, April 27th. This Jamaica run begins at Treasure Bay and brings with it all of the fascinating challenges of a triathlon which include running, biking and swimming. During the race, athletes will cross 300-meters of the ocean, complete a 25K by mountain bike and end the day on a scenic note with a 7K trail run that leads to the finish line. While hundreds compete, just as many, if not more come to cheer the athletes on. Jake’s Triathlon is a notoriously high-energy event where fun, competition, support and food collide! The race ends with a party where athletes are awarded a number of prizes depending on their registered category.
