WHERE: Katherine Abby Hanna Park - 500 Wonderwood Drive, Jacksonville, FL 32233 (map it)
XTERRA JAX is returning to Hanna park after a long hiatus with a 1/2 mile ocean swim followed by a 9.5 mile mountain bike leg and a 4.5 mile run through the jungles of this ocean side park. The trails are relatively flat but don't let that fool you, they are challenging as they switch back from side to side through the trees and palmettos roots. The run is bit easier than the bike but not by much, you will definitely get the full Florida feel when you are done.
Distances: 1/2 Mile Swim | 4.5 Mile Trail Run | 10 Mile Mountain Bike
