Description

While some of our other races are more competitive, Disco is without a doubt our most popular. It 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 run through a tree lined state park.
Please note, the cut off time for the X-50 course is 1:30pm. If you are unsure you can complete the course by this time, please register for the Olympic or Sprint distance.
