All posts in Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas

An early season event, IRONMAN Texas gives athletes a chance to head south to warmer water.
Just 27 miles north of Houston, The Woodlands is one of America’s first “master planned” communities, making it the perfect venue for a race of this magnitude. 
The Woodlands is close to two major airports, numerous parks, a bustling downtown, and a luxurious resort for athletes and their families to enjoy. 
With plenty of amenities within walking distance, this pedestrian-friendly community makes it easy for visitors to find their way around town during race week.
Athletes will begin with a 2.4-mile swim in Lake Woodlands. 
The 112-mile bike course takes participants west through the scenic, rolling farmland of east Texas. 
The day ends with a 26.2-mile run taking place entirely within The Woodlands and concluding with a spectacular finish on Waterway Ave.
There are 50 qualifying slots for the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI.
