SWIM

The 2.4-mile swim began at North Shore Park and ended in the canal at Town Green Park. 

According to officials some of the best places to watch this part of the race are along the Lake Woodlands Pkwy Bridge just East of North Shore Park. Also, along the canal between Lake Woodlands and the swim finish.

 

BIKE

The 112-mile ride is out and back on the route twice.

According to officials some of the best places to watch this part of the race are, the streets and neighborhoods are heavily congested during the bike portion of the event. In order to avoid getting stuck out on the course, the best option for the bike start and finish is along Lake Robbins.

RUN

The 26.2-mile run is on a three-loop course. Runners will go down Lake Woodlands Drive, Woodlands Parkway, toward the mall and then back around.

According to officials some of the best places to watch this part of the race are, along the waterway (3 loop course), especially near the restaurants close to Waterway Ave and near the transition area. No tents are per­mitted on the waterway; however, North Shore Park is a good place for families/kids mid-day.
