Course Description
Each distance of the Kerrville Tri will begin with a swim in scenic and calm waters of Nimitz Lake formed by the dammed Guadalupe River that flows through town. Just a short distance from the swim exit is the transition for the bike course,T1. T1 is located in the grassy field behind the Family Sports Center, on Hwy 16 at the intersection of Guadalupe St.

The famous bike course leaves T1 for a ride through the historic downtown district. From here the Half and Quarter Distance will continue out of town for a fast ride through rolling ranch country side and by creek fed water crossings. The Quarter Distance will do one loop and the Half Distance will do two full loops. Bikes will make a loop back into downtown Kerrville for the second transition area (T2) located at Louise Hayes Park.

Starting in 2015, the Kerrville Triathlon Run course is held entirely on the Kerrville River Trail. This scenic trail follows the Guadalupe River from Louise Hayes Park all the way to Kerrville Schriener Park. The Half Distance will complete two 6.55 loops, while the Quarter and Sprint Distances run courses will be a single loop.

Transition
All events at the Kerrville Triathlon Festival will use a two transition area format. T1 (swim to bike) and T2 (bike to run) are in different locations approximately 2 miles apart. Participants will ride their bicycles during the event from T1 after the swim to T2, where they will begin the run.

Aid Stations
The Half and Quarter Distance run course will have aid stations at approximately each mile. The Aid Stations for the Sprint Distance will have Water and Gatorade. Aid Stations for the Quarter & Half will be stocked with water, Gatorade, pretzels, and fruit.

The Energy Zone will be at Aid Station #1, which will be passed twice for the Quarter Distance, and four times for the Half Distance.

At each station, there will be medical personnel from Peterson Medical who can provide injury assessment and first aid. There will also be EMTs in vehicles roaming the course for athletes in need of assistance.

Finish Line Festival
Finally, we get to the important part! The Finish Line Party is stocked with goodies, good music, and fun fun fun! The finish line area is open to the public so feel free to invite family and friends to come experience the excitement while you are out crushing the course.

H-E-B is providing some top notch food for all participants and the Jack & Adam’s Fredericksburg will be keeping the grills hot and the food coming throughout the day! There will be bountiful refreshing drinks and yummy snacks as well as a beer garden, flowing with local beer from, for participants over 21 ! Make sure you have your yellow band on, this not only gets you in transition but also into the beer garden. Food and drinks are for participants only.
