Head south to warmer conditions and resort amenities at this early-season race in the heart of Texas.
Just 27 miles north of Houston, The Woodlands is the perfect venue to host the IRONMAN North American Championship. The Woodlands is one of America’s first master-planned communities, is close to two major airports, numerous parks, and a bustling downtown for athletes and their families to enjoy. With plenty of amenities within walking distance, this pedestrian-friendly community makes it easy for visitors to find their way around town during race week.
Athletes will begin with a 2.4-mile swim in Lake Woodlands. The rolling start, point-to-point swim begins at North Shore Park and ends at South Shore Park. The two-loop, out and back 112-mile bike course takes participants south through the scenic, rolling farmland of east Texas. The day ends with a 26.2-mile run taking place entirely within The Woodlands and concluding with a spectacular finish on Waterway Ave.
