DRC Sports and JumpingFish present Jacksonville’s first marathon St. Johns River open water race. Jacksonville’s Up the River Downtown 10k and new this year the 1 Mile Open Water Race starts at Jacksonville University on the beach and finishes at Riverside Arts Market at the Fuller Warren Bridge. The swim takes the athlete under the Hart Bridge, the Matthews Bridge, past the Stadium, through the Main Street Bridge, and under the Acosta and Railroad bridges. Up the River Downtown grew out of the JumpingFish five-annual exhibition and group swims of the same name. A unique way to tour downtown Jacksonville!

The race is scheduled for September 22nd to leverage the flood/incoming tides. The current assist will get the average swimmer to the finish in less than two hours. Slack water is at 6:57 am and peak flood tide current is at 9:57 am.
