2018 Life Time Tri CapTex Registration Is Now Open!
Course
The star of the show

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, athletes exit the northeast corner of transition, loop around the parking lot, then climb atop the S. 1st Street bridge. After crossing the bridge, cyclists head north to the Texas Capitol, return through the heart of downtown Austin on Congress Avenue and head west along Cesar Chavez Blvd. and Lady Bird Lake, just past the MoPac Expressway, and back to the S. 1st Street bridge.

The run course loops through Butler Park and the Palmer Events Center before the rousing finish and lively post-race party at Auditorium Shores!
