We have a new location on the south side of Clear Lake-South Shore Harbor
Resort. This will provide an awesome venue for all of the day's activities.
There will be an easier and safer entrance into & out of the water! For the
bike course-it will be 1 or 2 loops of the same sprint course as 2010 so you
still get to enjoy the Kemah Bridge! Reminder-the course for both races will
turn right at FM 2094 instead of SH 96.

course, bike 40 K (24.8 miles) double-loop crossing the Kemah Bridge twice
with views of Clear Lake and NASA Space Center, run 10 K (6.2 miles) out and

course, bike 20 K (12.4 miles) loop crossing Kemah Bridge with views of
Clear Lake and NASA, run 5 K (3.1 miles) through South Shore Marina and
Take I-45 South. Exit League City (exit 23). Make a left (going under
I-45) onto FM 518 (which locals call Main Street). Remain traveling straight
onto FM 2094. FM 518 will veer off to the right (in approximately 2 miles
after you enter onto FM 518) and you will want to remain traveling straight
onto FM 2094 (also known as Marina Bay Drive). In approximately 2 more
miles, you will come to a main intersection with a traffic light. Please
turn left here onto South Shore Boulevard. South Shore Harbour Resort and
Conference Center will be on your right at the end of boulevard.
