Tyler Triple Threat


FRESH 15, Beauty and the Beast and Tri Tyler Half team up to announce the Tyler Triple Threat Challenge

Three Tyler, Texas, endurance racing events have partnered to present a new challenge for athletes. The Tyler Triple Threat Challenge, sponsored by Tyler Urology Associates, will cross promote the FRESH 15, Beauty & the Beast and Tri Tyler Half.

The first part in the challenge is the FRESH 15 – a 15k and 5k road race set for March 7, 2015, starting and ending at FRESH by Brookshire’s in Tyler. The Beauty and the Beast bicycle tour/race on March 21 is the second endurance event, and consists of 12.5, 24, 34, 46, 53 or 67 route through beautiful areas of Tyler, while also encompassing a “beast” hill near the finish line. The challenge finale is the Tri Tyler Half, Half/Olympic/ Sprint triathlon set for May 5 at Lake Tyler.

Here’s how it works:

Athletes that participate in each event will receive a commemorative Tyler Triple Threat Challenge medal and finisher’s certificate. Athletes may participate in any distance of each event, but must participate and finish all three.

This special event will showcase equally beautiful parts of Tyler and combine the efforts of three great races. Participants will receive their medals and finisher’s certificates at the finish line of the Tri Tyler Half on May 3, 2015.

Join us for what promises to be not just one but three great racing events for 2015.
