iron man competition 2011 the woodlands texasAn Ironman triathlon consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride* and a 26.2-mile run, and athletes must complete the three disciplines in succession within a 17-hour time frame. Ironman Texas competitors will begin with a swim across Lake Woodlands, entering the water at Northshore Park and finishing at Town Green Park near Market Street, which will serve as a transition area. From there athletes will begin the bike course that will take them west through The Woodlands before heading south through Spring and Harris County, and then returning to The Woodlands where the final portion is a marathon 26.2-mile run course entirely within The Woodlands that concludes with a spectacular finish at Waterway Square.


The Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas will offer 75 coveted slots to the Ironman World Championship, taking place during October in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Additionally, there will be a prize purse of $100,000 for distribution among the top professional male and female finishers. See the 2018 Ironman Texas race results here.

The bicycle course has undergone several changes each year from the original 2011 course to better accommodate vehicular traffic, as well as increase athlete safety. The running course has also seen some modifications since 2011 as the finish line has been relocated from Market Street's Central park to Waterway Square Park on The Waterway. Additional course details are available on the Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas Web site.
