Hi,
We are considering a move from the Philadelphia area to Abilene, TX. My teenage children and I are very involved with a number of sprint triathlons/duathlons in this area, and before we make a decision, we would like to know a little more about the triathlons in this area. Does anyone participate in any, or know of any? SheRox is a big annual one around here.
Thanks.

I know nothing about running and what's available in Abilene. But, there is a website: www.abilenerunners.com

I'm sure it will help. There might be some contacts on it for additional information. I will tell you that Abilene Christian University is well known for having one of the best track and field programs in the US. BTW, we moved here a year ago from out of state and love it!

Looks like no one has any information about sprint triatholons so I guess there are none. Better just stay where you are.

Here's a site that lists a bunch of events. It's the West Texas Running Club.

I'm in college in Abilene and participate in triathlon. There really isn't much that happens in Abilene. There is an annual canoe, mtn bike, trail run that Abilene Christian University puts on but it isn't sanctioned by USAT. Fort Worth and Dallas (where I am from) has a lot more to offer and is only 2.5 - 3 hours away. Same with Austin. Good luck!
