Disco Triathlon Sprint, Olympic and X-50

Sun September 19, 2021 Directions
Countdown to Race Day
Johnson Branch Unit 100 PW 4153 Valley View, TX 76272-741 (exit 483 from I35 North) (940) 637-2294

Covid 19 Update: 8-12-2020: POSTPONED UNTIL 2021
DAR apologizes that you might of received an e-mail by mistake on the Disco Triathlon the other day. It was an automated e-mail that was set up weeks ago assuming everything would be on schedule for the event. We were wrong as the virus continues to cause problems and to that end after consulting with park officials, who must adhere to government restrictions and prioritizing the safety of all participants, we regret to announce that both events have had to be postponed until 2021. Instead of making both events virtual we would rather wait and plan two awesome events next year.  We really thought moving Texasman Triathlon entries to the Disco Tri would be enough time to circumvent COVID 19 and Disco would be on schedule… wrong! 

Looking at 2021 if you signed up for the TexasMan Tri , then you will be automatically transferred to next year's date of Sunday May 2, 2021 and if you signed up for the Disco Tri,  then you will be transferred to next year's date of Sunday September 19, 2021.  If you signed up for both,  then you will be transferred to both the 2021 TexasMan Tri and Disco Tri.

As a registered participant you do not need to do anything except change the date on your calendar. DAR will automatically move you to next year's date. The pandemic has been a challenging “adventure” for everyone but postponing both events is the right decision.

Thank you for understanding, we look forward to celebrating together next year. Really appreciate everyone working with us to get thru this mess


Covid 19 Update: 8-8-2020: DAR has been checking with Park Officials on a weekly basis and right now they are following the Government restrictions of mass gatherings of 10 or less. Next week we will look at all options available to us and make a decision if we will be able to have the event as planned.  

Covid 19 Update: 8-1-2020: We are closely monitoring and working with the local authorities, and the Texas Department of State Health Services. We are following the Government regulations and restrictions. Right now mass gatherings are 10 people or less. Hopefully by September that number will increase to 500 or more. If we are unable to hold the event because of Covid 19 then we will look at other options available to us. It’s too early to make any calls and will have a better idea over the next 3-4 weeks. Right now the event is moving forward as planned. Thanks for all your support and understanding as we work together in this unprecedented time. Safety is our number one priority. 


While some of our other races are more competitive, Disco is without a doubt our most popular. It's simple… Gold chains, big hair, polyester and silk, a KILLER race course, a beach start and a finish next to the lake.

We offer three distances at Disco.
Sprint: 500 yards open water swim, 17.6 mile ride and 3.1 mile run.
Olympic: 1 mile open water swim, 23-mile ride and 6.2 mile run.
X-50: 1 mile open water swim, 40 mile ride, 9 mile run.
– All have a spectator friendly beach start
– The bike ride has a couple of “Texas Hills”
– The run is awesome! Runners enjoy a tree lined state park route.
Please note, the cut off time for the X-50 course is 1:30 pm. If you are unsure you can complete the course by this time, please register for the Olympic or Sprint distance.
