J Strong Triathlon 2020
J Strong triathlon takes place the weekend of October 4th, 2020 and is hosted by the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Greater Albuquerque.
You can perform all three events in any order you prefer, and you can even spread the events over the two days if you wish. The bike & run are to be performed at pre-dedicated courses. All athletes need to submit a picture of their route/map along with their time to the JCC Race Director, Susanna Pier. ONLY if you have done the correct course/distance will your time be taken into consideration for the competition. You can use apps like Strava or MapmyRun/Bike for this. You can e-mail them to email@example.com or text to 505-400-8869.
Early bird fee give you a big price break! Cost on September 1st-15th is only $30. You will also get to pick up your swim lane earlier and reserve the size of your shirt. Registration on September 16th-30th is $45.
The 14.2 mile bike route: Course start is at Indian School & North Diversion channel (just west of Harvard). Turn around point is at Balloon Fiesta Park & North Diversion Channel (do not cross the bridge to go to the park). ALWAYS USE UNDERPASSES; there are NO CROSSING STREETS, NO STOP SIGNS, TRAFFIC LIGHTS OR MOTOR VEHICLES ON THE COURSE. We will have J Strong monitors on the course both days from 7.30am-9.30am, but you can absolutely perform the course at any time that best fits your schedule.
