Event Purpose:
The Rotary Club of Greater San Marcos is hosting a park sprint triathlon which sponsors many of our existing programs locally. Namely supports an Early Act Program at Travis Elementary, as well as provides Scholarships for local high school students.
All proceeds will benefit the Greater San Marcos Rotary Foundation 501(c)(3).
About The Event:
This is a SWIM, RUN, BIKE Sprint Triathlon. This will be our 2rd year to run the Triathlon in this order & our 8th overall year to host the Triathlon. The Rotary Club of Greater San Marcos is proud to offer a sprint triathlon at the renowned Spring Lake (Meadows Center in San Marcos). "The prestigious Spring Lake is located in a 250-acre preserve. About half of the property is in the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone, and all of the property is part of the Sink Creek Watershed." (
With it being such a precious protected lake, the lake is closed to public swim 363 days out of the year. Only two times during the course of a year is the crystal clear lake opened for public swim. The Rotary Club of Greater San Marcos Spring Lake Triathlon is on of those. It is indeed a privilege to swim in the lake!
The Spring Lake Triathlon has limited slots available. It's important to open ASAP when registration opens. As a participant, you will receive a registration packet that includes, a t-shirt, custom swim cap and promotional materials from sponsors. Participants are invited to take part in the post-even food and entertainment. This would be a GREAT time for you mingle with fellow participants. Awards will be given to each division during this time.
