Description

While some of our other races are more competitive, Disco is without a doubt our most popular. It's simple… Gold chains, big hair, polyester and silk, a KILLER race course, a beach start and a finish next to the lake.

We offer two distances at Disco.
Sprint: 500 yards open water swim, 17.6 mile ride and 3.1 mile run.
Olympic: 1 mile open water swim, 24 mile ride and 6.2 mile run.
– All have a spectator friendly beach start
– The bike ride has a couple of “Texas Hills”
– The run is awesome! Runners enjoy a tree lined state park route.
