Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics has partnered with East Texas Triathletes to present the Trinity Mother Frances Rose City Triathlon. The annual sprint triathlon (650 meter open water swim, 12 mile bike, 3.1 mile run) will take place at a specially designed Lake Tyler course on September 5.

In its eighth year, the event is known for a beautiful course around Lake Tyler and its trend of attracting new participants from across East Texas and beyond each year. In fact, each year members of USA Triathlon Association vote on their favorite small, medium, and large triathlon. Over the past few years our – South Midwest – region (4 states) has voted the Rose City Triathlon favorite small (2008) and medium (2009 & 2012) triathlon, as well as champ venue for 2011 and 2013.

From now until race day, East Texas Triathletes will be hosting several clinics focused on the components necessary to successfully complete a triathlon – swimming, biking and running.

The 2015 triathlon will also feature a kids’ triathlon!
