Held just 15 minutes from downtown Austin, the event will use a sprint distance course that swims in Decker Lake, bikes around the lake, and uses a traffic free run course entirely inside the park. There is tons of space and we’ve secured parking nearby, so bring the family and friends. As usual with our events, we’ll finish off with a great outdoor party, awards, and prize giveaway.
Couples Triathlon details:
Couples Triathlon is a sprint distance triathlon that is completed individually, but scored in a unique fashion. Here’s how it works:
2 people sign up as a team. They don’t need to be a “couple”. In fact, most teams are friends or family members.
1 person may also sign up as an individual if they prefer.
The team is put into one of the event divisions. The divisions are listed on the info page.
Each person completes the event as an individual. The wave starts will be based on the event divisions.
After the event is completed, the awards will be determined based on the division and the combined age of the team. Awards will also be given to individual competitors based on age groups.
Official results will be available by overall place, team place, and by age group. Results will be sent to USAT using the official age group categories for USAT rankings.
New for 2012: 2 Person Relays.
Distance: 800m Swim, 11.2 mile bike, 3.1 mile run.
