2014 Wiki Wiki Man Triathlon:

The Wiki Wiki Man Triathlon is a fun and friendly triathlon just outside of Dallas, TX featuring a Texas Sized Sprint and an Olympic distance race. The Sprint race has been picked by the USAT SMW Region as the Regional Sprint Championship race for 2014.

Racer packet includes a tech shirt, a cotton t-shirt, polar water bottle and various sponsor offers and discounts. Awards go 3 deep in all USAT age groups and overall winners, masters overall, Clydesdale & Athena categories as well as the team category in the Sprint race. Finisher medals are awarded to racers completing their first triathlon or first Olympic distance triathlon.

The Sprint race also has a free Group Team category that uses your race time from your individual race result combined with your teammates' times to get an overall team time. Teams need a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 people with the 3 fastest times counting toward the team time. Come out and race while also representing your club or group of friends.

2 & 3 Person Relay race teams are available for both the sprint and Olympic races (this is separate from the team category above)

CAMPING is available at the Park and makes for an easy walk to transition in the morning. Saturday night reservations must be made through Big Earth Racing (visit website to register for a camping spot).

Course Information:

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 mostly flat with very few intersections and only two turns.
  • The Sprint and the Olympic bike legs share the same distance - the same course. That's Right!

 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 short 1/4 mile trail run weaves through trees, before it takes you back to pavement.
  • Once you hit the road, the course quickly takes you out of the park and it becomes an out and back with a couple of rolling hills.
  • 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 partial loop.

TRANSITION AREA:

  • The transition area is conveniently close to the swim exit.
  • As soon as racers leave the water, they are only steps from the timing unit and then head directly into the transition area.
  • It is a large transition area, so there will be plenty of room to rack your bike and find your way in and out.

Please visit the website for a full interactive course map.

Directions:

Where is Lake Tawakoni? Surprisingly, it's 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 way.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS

FROM DALLAS:
Take Highway 80 east through Terrell to Wills Point. Be sure not to miss the 80 exit to Terrell. If you miss the exit it will take you 10 miles out of the way. Once you enter Wills Point, turn left on North 4th Street and head north to Lake Drive / FM 47. Turn right onto Lake Drive / FM 47 and proceed north to FM 2475. Look for Race Signs - Turn left onto FM 2475 and head north until you reach Lake Tawakoni State Park. You will also see signs for Lake Tawakoni State Park along the way.

FROM INTERSTATE 20:
Take State Highway 20 to FM 47 north through Wills Point to FM 2475. Turn left onto FM 2475 and head north until you reach Lake Tawakoni State Park. There are also signs for Lake Tawakoni State Park along the way.
