GREAT & EXCITING NEWS FOR 2016!
As we all know, projects can tend to run late! Lucky for us, the lake project has been delayed until later in 2016, so we will able to host the event once again at Pecan Park! We hope you'll join us again this year or give it a "tri" if you've never done it before!
16th annual Tejas Triathlon will host up to 800 triathletes for an awesome sprint distance race with a 600 yard swim, 12 mile flat and fast bike, and a shaded 3 mile run.
The race will be at Pecan Park in the New Territory sub-division of Sugar Land, Texas, near the intersection of Hwy 99 and Hwy 90. The man-made lake in New Territory is an ideal setting for novice triathletes as well as experienced veterans. The water temperature will be very warm-well above the 78 degree cut-off for wetsuits. The bike course is flat but windy and leads into a 3 mile shaded loop that ends underneath 100 year-old pecan trees. Race Maps are available, Here.
