Bicycles Plus TexasMan Olympic Tri
Sunday, May 5th, 2013 | texasmantriathlon.com
The TexasMan Olympic Triathlon features a sand beach swim start. The bike ride features some “Texas hills”. (If you’re not from Texas, a Texas hill is just that… a hill… which breaks up the flat terrain of the area). The run is mostly tree lined through the state park.
- Open to men and women
- Sand beach start to an open-water swim
- Wetsuit legal (Water temps average 71-74 degrees in May.)
- Post-race festivities include a live band
TexasMan Olympic Triathlon has developed the reputation of “Energy, FUN, and Organized.” If you are not one of the more than 3,000+ athletes from around the country who have experienced TexasMan Weekend, we welcome you to join us for Year Ten! If you are a TexasMan veteran, we look forward to seeing you again this year and adding another finisher prize to your collection!
