Join us for our 7th Annual Oktoberfest Triathlon and Duathlon at Cross Creek Ranch; a premier master planned community located in Fulshear, Texas. This property is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for this great event. Enjoy a great lake swim followed by a scenic flat ride and a beautiful run through the green belts. This event will start at approximately 7:20am with the Olympic swim first followed by the Sprint swim. The Olympic and sprint duathlon run will start at 7:30am.  The Olympic and sprint duathlon will run 1 mile before the bike and run.

Afterwards enjoy our Oktoberfest with beer from No Label Brewing Co., Saint Arnold’s, Karbach, and Buffalo Bayou Brewing; don’t miss it.
