Due to a lack of registrations, the 2016 Lake Tejas Triathlon and Duathlon has been cancelled. I apologize for any inconvenience, and wish more people would support local charity events. Thanks to all the participants and sponsors in the past. If you would like to help with the event for 2017, please call 936.634.9785.
