The Austin Triathlon became part of the TriRock Triathlon Series presented by REI in 2012. This annual event, now in its 8th year, takes places on Monday of Labor Day weekend in the heart of downtown Austin! The urban setting provides a swim start at the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue with a swim course in Lady Bird Lake, fast and closed bike course with stunning views over the Congress Street Bridge and finishes with a run along the Auditorium Shores running path. Local retailer Jack & Adams Bicycles provides training, gear and other pre race warm up events to get you ready to race. This is a destination event with a triathlon scene that rocks like no other!
New in 2014 there are two Featured Races within a Race offered: the Triathlon Club Challenge where the top 10 clubs based on number of registered participants receive a pre/post race area and the Military Challenge.
