The race is held at Lake Tawakoni State Park located just 50 MILES EAST OF DALLAS, The Spring Fall Classic Triathlon has a challenging and fun race course. The open water swim courses (no loops) have a beach entrance and take place in beautiful Lake Tawakoni. The scenic 24.8 mile bike for both distances is an out and back course that is fast and flat with only two turns. The Sprint run course is also an out and back with a couple of rolling hills, and a fun 1/4 mile trail run to kick it off. The Olympic run course uses the same route and includes a partial loop.
