Description
This year we’re back at Kemah with parking at the boardwalk, transition near the water, and a run course winding through the Kemah Boardwalk. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating the 6th Annual Kemah Triathlon on April 12, 2015.

In the coming months we will update the overview with one comprehensive course map for each race (adult tris, kids tri, 5k). Until then please explore the links below and checkout each of the courses and what they have to offer.

This race is not for the faint of heart. Although very beginner friendly please keep in mind that If open water and/or salt water is not your thing then think twice before signing up. Keep in mind that swimming in the ocean can be smooth as glass or very choppy, it varies from year to year. A wetsuit will help with this. Wetsuits are used for warmth but another great benefit they offer is flotation. Most suits will keep a swimmer floating with little to no effort greatly increasing efficency and offering a much welcomed peace of mind. If you’re up for the challenge the olympic time trial boat start is a ton of fun and something you’ll remember the rest of your life. Typically the sprint swim is a bit harder than the olympic because of the directional changes (buoy turns), sun, and wave start factors. Either way both courses offer unique and rewarding challenges.

Althought the bike course is flat there can be a lot of wind at times presenting a challenge typically on the way out but rewarding you greatly on the way in. The run is simple yet enjoyable as runners get to take in the sites and sounds of both the City of Kemah and the attractions at the Kemah Boardwalk.

Kemah is truly one of the most unique venues in the United States and we are beyond exited that they’ve allowed us to move the race back to where it all began in the heart of the City of Kemah and the Kemah Boardwalk. Also, remember that this event is an Escape to Alcatraz Qualifier and part of the Escape To Series! Top age group winners in the olympic distance race will receive a qualification spot to one of the most sought after races in the world.
