Jaybird Journey to NationalsJaybird Journey to Nationals Video Contest

For the seventh consecutive year, Jaybird is taking submissions for the best 30-to-60 second video capturing each team's journey to the 2018 USA Triathlon Collegiate Club National Championships.

What is the Jaybird Journey to Nationals Video Contest?

When you attend the 2018 USA Triathlon Collegiate Club National Championships in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, racing is only part of the overall triathlon experience. We recognize the primary reason many of you race is for the camaraderie and fun generated from your triathlon team and that it takes a lot of will to get here. We want to know makes your team tick? What drives you to push harder, further, to reach your goals? You goal is to demonstrate what inspires your team in the Journey to Nationals video.


How does it work?
