New Date: September 26, 2020
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the (temporary) measurements that have been put in place by the diverse states/ governors and governments we had to decide to postpone the 22nd Root River Triathlon until September 26th. We are fortunate enough to be able to postpone the race until September. Lots of other races do not have that opportunity.
Additional race information can be found at http://www.rootrivertriathlon.org.
This “doable”, non-swimming triathlon is set in the Root River valley in scenic Bluff Country.
The first triathlon was held 1998 by the City of Houston. Participation is open to men and women of every age (young people of 17 years and younger with the consent of their guardian).
Participants begin by canoeing or kayaking 6.8 miles down river from Houston to Mound Prairie. Then they hop on their bikes for an 7.9 mile road-ride back to Houston. Some hills “en route” are challenging and demand an extra effort. The race wraps up with a 3 mile, fairly level run, starting on the Root River trail and then through the streets of Houston.
The finish is at the Band Shell in beautiful Trailhead Park where the award ceremony will take place around noon by Mike Beckman of the Houston Lions Club. While your kids can check out the Natural Playground with rocks, water feature, large sand play area and a labyrinth.
If you sign up after September 1, 2020, you will not get a T-Shirt.
This event is limited to 400 participants.
