Are you Texas tough? The  4th annual Texas Tough Duathlon takes place at the peak of autumn in the Texas Hill Country. This race is a challenging run, ride, run duathlon and serves as the 2017 State Duathlon Championships as well! With the best post-race food, refreshments, unique registrant and finisher awards, and free racer photos, the Texas Tough Duathlon has become the premier multisport event in Texas.


We have revamped the course venue and we think you will really love it. We will start off from Dr. Sara McAndrew Elementary School, and the 5k will lead us North into the beautiful Hill Country with a rolling out and back. A fair taste of Texas Tough hills awaits you on the 16 mile road ride, heading  North up Toutant Beauregard and turning onto Dodge Rd. The bike will turn around and head back at the end of Dodge Rd.The second run will go South from transition for a shorter out and back. The run ends with a nice downhill finish.
