Hammerhead Ocean Marathon

August 17, 2019 - 7:30am

This is the 14th annual event, which involves an open water swim in the Atlantic Ocean along beautiful Jacksonville Beach, finishing just north of the iconic Jax Beach Lifeguard Station.

There are three distances to choose from. New this year is a 1k swim, perfect for someone just starting open water swimming. The 2k is the traditional 1.25 mile swim that has been a standard all these years. New last year was the 5k swim; every swimmer in this event will receive a finisher medal. Pick your distance and join us!

As always, there will be support kayaks and lifeguards along the way.


For those traveling, the Host Hotel is the Four Points by Sheraton, right on the beach at the start line, next to the lifeguard station. Call (904-435-3535, option zero) for reservations and mention that you are with the HammerHead Ocean Marathon. You will get a discounted rate for an ocean front hotel; you must reserve by July 17 in order to get this discount.

Early registration pricing ends two weeks before the race.  Online registration will close on Thursday night before the race, but you can still register at packet pick-up on Friday night or on race morning.

This event supports the Jacksonville Beach Volunteer Life Saving Corps and is supported by the City of Jax Beach Ocean Rescue.
