Registration & Fees

The Annual TriWaco Events and Fees information is below, but did you know that Waco is the home of the first triathlon ever held in the state of Texas? The Waco Striders hosted the event in May 1980 with 24 men and one woman to compete in the Olympic distance at Lake Waco with the staging area at Speegleville Park. The event grew to 500 entries with a waiting list each year. The 12th Annual Waco Triathlon was in 1991. That was the last year for the triathlon until the new TriWaco in 2009. Many triathletes considered the Waco Triathlon the best in Texas, and we’re confident the Annual TriWaco event will continue to grow in popularity.
