Welcome to the 2017 TYR JAX50
April 21-23, 2017
It is more than a dash for cash. It is a chance for ordinary swimmers from eight years-old and up to compete at the same meet, in the same event, with ten of the top swimmers in the sport, every one of them racing for the chance to swim in one of the two empty lanes against Olympians, national and NCAA champions, American and world record holders in swimming's premier test of speed - The 50 freestyle.
But this event is more than just a chance to race an Olympian. It is an opportunity to help many underprivileged families benefit from life-saving swimming instruction. All Net Proceeds from this one weekend event will fund a drowning prevention program for children int he Jacksonville Metro Area.
