News Release
Wednesday, August 01, 2018

The Rotary Club of Katy will host its 26th Annual Katy Triathlon on Sunday, September 23 in Katy, TX.

This year, the event will shift to a new location at Cane Island, a master-planned community located at 2100 Cane Island Parkway, Katy, TX 77493, nestled within the City of Katy. According to race officials, the new course is short and perfect for the beginner triathlete. The race includes a 500-meter lake swim, a 15-mile bike race, and a three-mile run in and around Cane Island.

Registration is ongoing and filling up quickly for the popular event which will feature numerous divisions including the newly created Aqua Bike (swim and bike only), Duathlon (run-bike-run), High School Championship (students in grades 9-12 for 2018-19 school year) and Legends (retired triathletes who are returning, must have been doing triathlons prior to 1999). You must be a minimum of 11 years of age to take part in the triathlon and 12 years of age to participant in the relay. More detailed division information can be found here.

To accommodate those traveling from out of town, event organizers and local hotels are offering discounted registration and hotel room rates. As part of the special deal, the cost will be $125.50 to $145.50 (hotel and registration, excluding hotel taxes) for single bed to double bed rooms at participating hotels. The cost breakdown is registration for $36.50 and a room rate of $89-$109, excluding hotel taxes. The deal will run through August 31 and is non-refundable. Participating hotels include three Katy Mills hotels, Country Inn, Holiday Inn and Hilton Garden Inn. Additional participating hotels will be announced as necessary. Hotel accommodations as part of this special offering can be booked at katytriathlon.com/crthosthotel. Please note, this special applies to the relay as well.

High school athletes can register for $45.00 through September 19 and collegiate athletes can register for $50.00 through September 19. You can register at katytriathlon.com.
