Over 1,000 women will take on this sprint tri in and around the beautiful Woodlands Resort and surrounding area. We are so excited for our inaugural event there!
To support our women as they swim, bike and run, we are looking for some awesome volunteers who can assist us in service. Volunteers need to be at the resort by 6am on Saturday and will be finished by 11am- with everyone invited to our post-race party with great food and celebration after they finish volunteering!

UPDATED Ronnie Delzer, will attempt to break the record for “Greatest Distance Run in 12 Hours on a Treadmill” on Saturday, August 20, at Luke’s Locker in The Woodlands, Texas.
Delzer Sets Guinness World Record for a Treadmill Run
Last Saturday, The Woodlands' Ronnie Delzer, 34, broke the Guinness World Record for the furthest distance run on a treadmill in 12 hours. Ronnie logged a record 89.38 miles in 12 hours on the treadmill at Luke's Locker in The Woodlands.
The previous record of 86.49 miles was set on Memorial Day weekend by Canadian David Proctor. There was also a local connection to that run. Katy's Calum Neff ran on a treadmill as part of a 12 man team that set a record for the furthest distance in 24 hours by a male team.
Hot but not as hot as last weekend!
