Vic Mathias Shores | 900 W. Riverside Drive, Austin, TX
The 2019 Life Time Tri Series will host nearly 25,000 participants, many of whom have varying athletic abilities, interest levels, and goals when it comes to triathlon! If you haven’t trained to participate in the swim, run, or cycling portion of the triathlon, it’s not too late to secure your spot as a supportive fan. This event begins with a swim in Lady Bird Lake, then climb atop the South 1st Street Bridge. After crossing the bridge, participants will cycle north to the Texas Capitol, return through the heart of downtown, and then head west, where the run course loops through Butler Park and the Palmer Events Center before the rousing finish and lively post-race party at Auditorium Shores!
