NEW FOR 2016! International AquaBike (.93-mile swim, 24.3-mile bike) and Duathlon (3.1-mile run, 24.8-mile bike, 3.1-mile run) distances added.

Life Time Tri CapTex begins with a swim in Lady Bird Lake with the spectacular backdrop of the downtown Austin skyline. Bursting out of T1, bikes cross the 1st Street bridge and head north past the Texas Capitol and up to The University of Texas, returning through the heart of downtown Austin on Congress Avenue and heading west along Cesar Chavez Blvd and Lady Bird Lake to Austin High School and back to the 1st Street bridge.

International distance includes four laps, sprint distance is two laps and the First Tri is one and done. Back to T2 and then out on the run, which follows the south side of Lady Bird Lake then crosses the Ann Richards Bridge, famous for the largest urban bat colony in the U.S., with millions of bats taking to the skies from its superstructure at dusk. International distance athletes complete two laps of the run course, and everyone finishes at the Palmer Events Center to a jammin’ finish and post-race festival.
