The Texas State Sprint Triathlon is the Original and Classic Triathlon at the Meadows Center, formerly Aquarena Springs. This triathlon event has been hosted by the Texas State Triathlon Club and Alumni since 1999. This event is the primary fundraiser so the Club can travel to Collegiate Nationals and represent our State and University.
The swim is the best swim in Texas in the Spring Lake with clear visibility and fresh waters. This is one of the only times in the whole year people are allowed to swim in this Lake. The year around water temp is just over 70 degrees so wetsuits will be allowed.
The bike course is mostly flat our Post Rd with some rolling hills.
The run course is part on the road and part cross-country ending in a downhill in the shade. There is one good climb on this course.
The Texas State Triathlon Club is aware of the environmental emphasis at the Meadows Center. We strive to reinforce this emphasis through this event. We want to work with the Center so that the majority of the participants are aware of what the area means to Central Texas.
