About This Activity

The Central Texas High School Triathlon is a sprint tri that was originally founded for high school aged participants in the central texas area. Currently, the race is now open to all ages, with part of the cost of adult entry going to sponser high school athletes who would like to participate, but cannot otherwise afford it!

This is a small, fun sprint triathlon, with some partial trails on the running leg of the race.
