Martindale Triathlon

October 31 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

About This Activity

The Martindale Tri is reputed to be the oldest triathlon in Texas.  It is unique in that the swim leg has replaced by a paddle down the beautiful San Marcos River.  The Tri kicks off with a 7 mile run through the quaint little town of Martindale, TX.  Next up is the bike, which covers 16.5 miles of rolling hills just outside of Martindale and Staples.  Finally, a 5.5 mile paddle from Shady Grove Campground (aka Spencer Canoes) down to the 1977 bridge in Staples.  Sign up solo, as a team (one person runs, the other bikes, and both paddle) or as a relay (one person per leg).

For more information and to register, please visit our webpage here for the tri.
