Martindale Triathlon

39th Annual Martindale Triathlon Oct. 28, 2017

The Martindale Tri is reputed to be the oldest triathlon in Texas. It is brought to you by the Texas Canoe and Kayak Racing Association.  It is unique in that the swim leg has replaced by a paddle (canoe, kayak, or SUP) 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 1979 bridge in Staples.  Sign up solo, as a two-person team (one person runs, the other bikes, and both paddle) or as a three-person relay (one person per leg). Join us for a day of fun, competition, and the traditional post-race meal.

On site race registration at Shady Grove Campground is available on Friday, Oct 28 from 6-9 pm and Saturday, Oct 29 from 7-8 am.
