Description

The sprint triathlon will also include a team competition for the sixth year in a row. The team competition will consist of three divisions – male, female, and coed. This is not a relay, as each team member will do all three components of the sprint tri. The overall race times of the three team members will be added together to determine a final team time. The team with the lowest total time in their division will win team trophies. Racers that participate on a team are still eligible for overall and age group awards. 

The 5K is open to both runners and walkers and will start at 7:30 a.m.  Overall and age group awards will also be given out for the 5K. 

Dallas Athletes Racing will produce the 2018 Pioneer Power Sprint Triathlon & 5K. Multi sport enthusiasts in the North Texas area will recognize Dallas Athletes as the company responsible for highly regarded local events such as the St. Patrick's Day, Caveman, TexasMan, Disco, and Monster triathlons.

The Sprint Triathlon event distances are:
Pool Swim - 200 yards
