27th Annual Katy Triathlon Returns to Cane Island

October 30, 2019

The Katy Triathlon, now in its 27th year, will return to the Katy community of Cane Island on Sunday, November 3 when participants once again can compete in a traditional triathlon, a three-stage duathlon or a two-stage aquabike with proceeds benefiting scholarships for deserving Katy ISD seniors.

The Katy Triathlon is the oldest triathlon in the greater Katy/Houston area, as well as the only triathlon that is a non-profit event.

Last year marked the introduction of the duathlon (one-mile run followed by a 15-mile bike ride and three-mile run) and the aquabike (500-meter swim followed by a 15-mile bike ride) and by all accounts, the new events were very well received.

“Our race participants jumped by more than 50 percent,” says race chair Paul Kurt, noting an increase from 360 participants in 2017 to 555 in 2018.  “The new events provide an opportunity for those who may not be ready for a triathlon to compete in shorter and different two-sport races.”

The triathlon covers a 500-meter open water swim, 15-mile bike ride and three-mile run.

In anticipation of even larger crowds, Kurt says convenient offsite parking will be available at the southwest corner of Highway 90 and Cane Island Parkway.  Complimentary shuttle service will be provided from the parking area to the event site.

A pre-race party and pasta dinner will be held on Saturday, November 2 from 4-7 p.m. in Cane Island’s Cane Quarter, 2100 Cane Island Parkway.  Admission is free for race participants.  Guests are $10 per person.   Race packets also can be picked up that same day from noon – 7 p.m. in the Cane Quarter fireplace loft. 

Also new this year is a kid’s triathlon on Sunday, October 20 at the Mark A. Chapman YMCA, 1350 Main Street.  Children ages 5 – 11 can participate in a swim, bike and run according to age category.

For information and to register for this year’s Katy Triathlon/Duathlon/Aquabike events and the new kid’s triathlon, go to www.katytriathlon.com.  

Proceeds from registration fees for the 2019 Katy Triathlon/Duathlon/Aquabike will benefit need-based and character scholarships for graduating Katy ISD seniors.  Since its inception, the event has funded more than one half million dollars for scholarships. The event is committed to “Changing a Life for our next Generation.”
