Due to the ever changing situation with COVID-19 this race will be held in conjunction with the standards and guidelines the University of Florida has in place for large gatherings. Race Entry is limited to 250 people at the moment due to race guidelines
Come join us for a spectacular swim in the Florida Pool, a bike though UF’s scenic campus, and a run around the heart of our beautiful campus center including The Swamp. Celebrate three sports in a single sunshine-state morning. Gather up your energy and best friends for an event that will bring out the TriGator in you!!!
This race is perfect for just about anyone! Maybe you want to see what a triathlon is like? Maybe you’re training for your next race? Maybe you want to come in first? Maybe you just want to finish something more than a color run? This event is FOR YOU! Event Distances: A short 250 yard swim (that’s two and a half laps in the pool), a 3.4 mile bike ride, and a quick 1.1 mile run!
NEW THIS YEAR! The TriGators Sprint Triathlon Distance: 400 yard swim (4 laps in the Florida Pool), 10.2 mile bike ride, and a 3.1 mile run through the heart of the University of Florida campus! Throughout the years many of the Gainesville and University of Florida community have come out to support the UF TriGators. Your participation in this race provides us with the funding necessary for the University of Florida TriGators Triathlon Club to compete. With your help we’ve consistently been one of the top collegiate triathlon teams in Florida. Can You Escape The Swamp?
TriGators Alumni are welcome to come to the 2020 TriGators Triathlon and experience this race on their old stomping grounds!

Come race in the Swamp and support your favorite FCTC Team at the same time!
No Refunds and No Transfers. NO EXCEPTIONS!

TriGators reasonably relies on all entry fees in order to promote and function as a team to compete across the United States.
