Ocala, FL

Named as an Editor's Pick for one of the Best United States' Triathlons by Triathlete Magazine, HITS Ocala is one of the most popular HITS Triathlon Series races. The famed Carney Island Park will be home to this third stop on the HITS Triathlon Series circuit. The course is a convenient loop lay-out, where family and athletes can be engaged with each other throughout the entire day; both the bike and run come back through the park for high-fives and general spectator frenzy. Plus, the short drive from Walt Disney World and plenty of affordable lodging and dining options make this a destination for the entire family.
