The race is held at Lake Tawakoni State Park located just 50 MILES EAST OF DALLAS. Wiki Wiki Man has a challenging and fun race
course for both events. The open water swim courses (no loops) have a beach entrance and
take place in beautiful Lake Tawakoni. The scenic 24.8 mile bike for
both distances is an out and back course that is fast and flat with only
two turns. The Sprint run course is also an out and back with a couple
of rolling hills, and a fun 1/4 mile trail run to kick it off. The
Olympic run course uses the same route and includes a partial loop.
There is a TEAM CATEGORY for the SPRINT DISTANCE ONLY (No Additional Charge)
This is NOT a relay team. Participants now have the chance to join
together and compete as a team. You will be timed in your own age group
just like always and your time and your teammates' times will be
combined for a total team time. The Group Teams must consist of at least
3 and at most 5 members. The top 3 finishing times will count towards
the team ranking. During registration will you have the option to create
a Team Name or search for a Team Name. And the person creating the Team
has the option to password protect it.
CAMPING: This large race
venue also offers camp sites and RV Hook-Ups to those outdoor
enthusiasts who would like to stay at the race site. Reservations MUST be made through Big Earth Racing.
SWIM COURSE: The Sprint and the Olympic swim legs both have a
beach entrance, and take place in beautiful Lake Tawakoni. Both courses
run counter-clockwise and take racers around a small peninsula. The
Olympic swim leg shares the same course as the Sprint, however it takes
racers farther into the lake for a larger loop to complete 1500 meters.
Swimmers exit the water via a boat ramp, which takes them directly into
the transition area, so very little running is involved.
BIKE COURSE: This 24.8 mile out and back course is FLAT
and definitely FAST with very few intersections and only two turns.The
Sprint and the Olympic bike legs share the same distance - the same
RUN COURSE: The Sprint and the Olympic run legs mostly
share the same course. The run course takes you out of the transition
area and down a short path to a trail head. This very short trail run
weaves through trees about 1/4 mile, before it takes you out of the
park. Once you hit the road, the course becomes an out and back with a
couple of rolling hills to challenge your tired legs. Back in the park,
it is a fast and straight path to the finish line. The Olympic run
course takes you just past the Sprint turn-around and then comes back
into the park to Trail Head where Olympic racers head out again for a
Lake Tawakoni State Park is just east of Dallas. If you live in Dallas it is surprisingly the same distance from Dallas
as Lake Ray Roberts. Instead of heading north out of town towards
Denton, you head east out of town towards Terrell to find Lake Tawakoni
State Park. The lake is 35 minutes east of Rockwall, 55 miles from
Dallas, and a straight shoot out on 80 to Wills Point. About 9 miles
north of Wills Point on Lake Drive / FM 47 you'll find the State Park.
There will be Lake Tawakoni signs, as well as RACE signs to show you the
