2014 Performance Jetty-2-Jetty Ultra & Team Relay :
The Performance Jetty-2-Jetty Ultra & Team Relay is the longest oceanfront beach run in the world. The race was first held in 2000 by a group of distance-running friends to test the possibility of going the distance on the beach (before the tide pushed us up into the dunes or houses). Over the first few years, coordination with the tide was worked out. Now the J2J is open to all who would challenge themselves to go the entire length of this island, individually or as a relay team -- or bike the distance. J2J starts on the oceanfront at 8:30am, in Atlantic Beach, not far from the St Johns River entrance, and finishes 35 miles later to the south at the rock jetty by St Augustine's entry to the sea. There is now a category for those who wish to test their endurance by riding the entire length on a bicycle. You and/or your relay team can run as fundraisers, if you choose -- or you can run independent of the fundraising effort. Just let us know.
