One of more than 40 events in the global Ironman Series, the Memorial Hermann Ironman North American Championship Texas triathlon led athletes along a 2.4-mile swim, 94-mile bike and 26.2-mile run throughout The Woodlands and its surrounding areas on Saturday, May 13. The swim took place in Lake Woodlands, while the one-loop bike course took participants through Montgomery and Harris Counties. Athletes then took on a triple-loop run entirely within The Woodlands that concluded with a finish on Waterway Ave. The event offered 75 coveted age-group qualifying slots to the 2016 Ironman World Championship, taking place on Oct. 8 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
