Its many parks and lakes are popular for hiking, biking, swimming and boating.
You’ll love racing at this one-of-a-kind spectator-friendly venue located in the center of Austin. The run-swim-run format is in keeping with ITU World Championship format. The 3 kilometer run is on well-groomed mostly flat trail. Next run down to the dock area for a 1000 meter swim in the beautiful clean waters of the Pure Austin Quarry Lake. Finally, run another 3 loops of the 1 kilometer course finishing to sounds of cheering friends, family and spectators!
