Mayor Betsy Price will welcome athletes from around the world to the inaugural Tri Fort Worth this month.

The inaugural Tri Fort Worth on May 21 will include full-distance and half-distance races in the heart of Cowtown.

The race, a joint venture of the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau and Trident Sports, will consist of 140.6- and 70-3-mile routes. The event is one of the few independent long-course triathlons not associated with the Ironman organization.

“You’re going to get to see our beautiful city, our trails, our downtown, the river,” Mayor Betsy Price said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun and the race experience of a lifetime.”

In addition to a 2.4-mile swim at Marine Creek Lake, competitors will have a 112-mile bike ride north to Krum, northwest of Denton, and back to downtown. The 26.2-mile run will begin and end in downtown.
