Murrell Park, Flower Mound, Texas
Race Start: 8:00 a.m.
This is an off-road triathlon and includes a 1600-meter swim, a 13.1 mile mountain bike and a 5.6 mile run. The race will take place on the most popular trail in the DFW Metroplex, Northshore trail on Lake Grapevine. The start will take place at Murrell Park (about midway on the one-way looped course). The swim will be in a cove near an out of service boat ramp, depending on water levels in May. The mountain bikers will enter the course and travel in a counter clockwise direction, heading west to the far end of the loop and back on a sometimes fast, sometimes technical (including “rock gardens”), challenging single track loop. The runners will head east on a counter clockwise loop of flowy single track.Registration for the XTERRA Rock Dallas Triathlon opens March 1, 2018
