Event Update

First, we would like to say thank you for your interest and support for  Jack’s Generic Triathlon.

As a result of heightened COVID-19 requirements and a lower number of registrations, we have determined that it is not economically viable to produce Jack’s Generic on August 29th. We know that this news may be disappointing to you. We also understand the hours you have dedicated to training for this race. Please know that this cancellation was made with the determination to always produce the highest quality of events and to keep our other events that will continue this year.

If you are currently registered for the 2021 event, the opportunity to take part in awesome triathlons is not over! We are also expanding the options to transfer your registration to any High Five Events event within the next 12 months. You can select to transfer your registration to any distance at either of these events at no additional cost. This includes the new Rookie Tri distances at both CapTex Tri and at the Kerrville Triathlon Festival, the 3M Half Marathon (Jan. 23, 2022), Austin Marathon, half, or 5K (Feb. 20, 2022). Please email with any questions and include your confirmation #: info@jacksgenerictri.com.


Jack’s Generic Triathlon was founded by Jack Murray in 2003, at a time when he thought many triathlons had forgotten about the participants. Events had become so focused on getting big sponsors, accommodating pro athletes, and trying to look good that they sometimes neglected the actual product – the race. Athletes ended up paying more, but their racing experience was actually less. Jack had the idea to put on a race with very little pomp & circumstance, yet at the core be a great race. It would be well organized, safe, good value, and of course, fun. It reminded him of the generic aisle at the supermarket: It’s the same quality products, sometimes even better, but you don’t have to pay for the fancy packaging. And hence, the name Jack’s Generic Triathlon was born.

Today, the event has a lot more fancy packaging, but at its core, it is still all about the participants. Each edition is designed, planned, and priced with you, every day at the forefront of the experience.
