Head south to warmer conditions and resort amenities at this early-season race in the heart of Texas.
Just 27 miles north of Houston, The Woodlands is one of America’s first master-planned communities, making it the perfect venue for a race of this magnitude. The Woodlands is close to two major airports, numerous parks, a bustling downtown and a luxurious resort for athletes and their families to enjoy. With plenty of amenities within walking distance, this pedestrian-friendly community makes it easy for visitors to find their way around town during race week.
Athletes will begin with a 2.4-mile swim in Lake Woodlands. The 112-mile bike course takes participants west through the scenic, rolling farmland of east Texas. The day ends with a 26.2-mile run taking place entirely within The Woodlands and concluding with a spectacular finish on Waterway Ave.
