Annual Triathlon being held at Firethorne Katy TX

Annual Triathlon being held at Firethorne Katy TX  

 

The 24th Annual Katy Triathlon will be hosted once again by the Katy Rotary Club. The event will be held in and around the Firethorne neighborhood in Katy Texas and  will take place on Sunday October 2,2016 with the starting time at 7:00 AM.

 

Firethorne is a Master Planned Community located on FM 1463 about 2-3 miles south of I-10 and this event has been held in Firethorne for the last several years. I have written blogs about this Triathlon in the past as it is a huge local event where all the proceeds benefit local college scholarships awarded by the Katy Rotary Club.




This Triathlon will consist of a new (course) 14.8 mile bike ride, 500 meter lake swim and 3 mile run. Individuals as well as teams are competing. There are several brackets of competitors including the most competitive where an individual would have had to place in the top three in another sanctioned event during 2016 in order to qualify. Firethorne Triathlon  is USA Triathlon sanctioned event and is governed by USA Triathlon rules. Membership is required to participate and one day memberships are available. This Triathlon is very beginner friendly.

 

The Rotary  Club took over this competition in 1998 and since then has raised over $380,000 for college scholarship given to local area graduating seniors in Katy ISD.

 

I have been told this is a very exciting race and spectators are welcome to watch. As I have said in prior years  I would advise leaving very early early with parking now at the Wolman Elementary School and Firethorne Swim Center both located on North Firethorne Dr. All attendees should be ready to walk a long way to observe the event.
