An unconventional triathlon for Austin athletes who like to have a good time while engaging in competition. Competitors will bike 3 miles on Castle Hill Fitness spin bikes, hop on a Rowing Dock stand up paddle board and paddle 1/2 mile and return to the dock to complete 100 burpees led by Stronghorn Fitness

Heats will begin roughly every 30 minutes or when the last athlete has passed the halfway buoy on their SUP. 10 athletes per heat. The triathlon will be capped at 50 competitors.

The Terrible Triathlon has partnered with Short Mugs Rescue Squad to help raise awareness for the health and well-being of French Bulldogs and other brachycephalic breeds! Donate directly here!
