Texas 70.3 Cancelled

Recommended Posts

They had a crazy storm which meant they had to stop the race. Athletes on course had to get themselves to a safe spot, some had finished already though.

My buddy raced it & said it was a bad storm & they made the right decision to stop the race. It rolled in about 5min after he finished.

not sure if they restarted the race but plenty of folk got sick of waiting around & went home. 

The storms roll in quickly over there & can be nasty so tipping the race directors made the right call.

Didn't that happen a few years ago too?

The full got put on hold as the storm rolled past. The full is held in the Woodlands & the Half is held in Galveston down on the coast.

Saw a video on insta today of the finish arch - the wind was blowing so hard the timing screen fell out of the scaffolding - just after an athlete had run undeneath😳
