Before Twitter-CAVEMAN! Before “The Bachelor”-CAVEMAN! Before Lindsay Lohan’s Arrest-CAVEMAN!
Rated the #1 sprint triathlon (275-Swim, 10.9 Bike, 3.1 Run) for beginner’s by “Missing Link Magazine,” The Caveman Sprint Triathlon, Year Seven!
Perks … You get to wake up before the sun … You finally get to use your “Fred and Wilma” costumes … Best “Spectator Friendly” course EVER!
Join us Sunday, April 9, 2017 A.D., Flower Mound, TX.
You can cheer on your athlete during the 275-yard indoor pool swim. The 10.8-mile bike ride is an easy walk to see your rider knock out a rolling cycling adventure. And for the run, your athlete will tackle a one-loop 3.1 mile run with “a ton” of viewing opportunities.
Parking is simple.
Our venue in Flower Mound provides loads of close distance parking for all athletes and spectators.
The experience is inspiring.
You’ll see some well-trained triathletes working on their speed as well as a bunch of beginners crossing the finish line for the first time.
All participants will receive a tech garment and all finishers will receive a medal.
