Race Event Details

From the creators of The ALAMO 13.1 HALF, Manly Man Tri, TriPearl & Spa Girl Tri comes a TRI for just the fellas, the DUDE TRI.

At PURPOSE RACING we passionately believe in offering festive, dynamic & empowering races. Having been in triathlons since 1980 & unaware of any triathlons out there for just the guys, we’ve put our own little spin on all things triathlon.  Whether it’s the caramel-bacon brownies, a challenging bike & run course hill or a very scenic swim portion in a crystal clear resort lazy river, you’ll be treated to a one of kind triathlon. Perfect for first timers (newbies), TRI vets wanting to go fast on a closed course or to just give back by introducing another dude to the fine sport of triathlon or just friends/family looking for a cool, relaxing race-cation destination. The DUDE TRI is surely it.

Enjoy a safe, CLOSED course with NO vehicular traffic, awesome race swag including THE best race shirt you’ll ever get (IT’S an AMAZING pricey Adidas tech shirt), fun race experience, award winning Finisher Medals, FREE race pix, super discounted race-cation JW resort rooms for ONLY $179 HERE, and delicious post race culinary treats.
