Dallas TX Triathlon

  • Texas Horse Park at the Trinity 811 Pemberton Hill Road Dallas, TX, 75217 United States (map)

We are devastated to announce cancellation of the Dallas Triathlon 2019.

After months of countless obstacles and challenges, we will not be able to host this great event so many of you were excited about. As much as we believe the City of Dallas needs an open water event and we worked hard to offer it to you, such production brings up many issues, barriers and difficulties we were not able to conquer this time.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and disappointment.

We have several transfer options for your existing Dallas Triathlon registration. Please check your inbox as we have sent out an email with those options.

Please email for additional information.

We are diligently working on a bigger and better triathlon for the last Sunday of September 2020. Thank you for your support and understanding! Please save the date for the new Dallas Triathlon 9/27/2020!
