This athletic competition is planned for April 25, 2020 and takes place in The Woodlands area. Contestants will compete in three physical events: swimming, biking and running. The rolling start, point to point swim begins at North Shore Park and ends in the canal at Town Green Park. Athletes will start their 112 mile journey by navigating part of The Woodlands, then enter into Northern Harris County. Once in Harris County, athletes will navigate two loops on the Hardy Toll Road. Do not worry about the tolls; we have you covered! The majority of the course is closed to traffic and should make for a fast, flat course due to the minimal elevation. The run course takes place entirely within The Woodlands and concludes with a spectacular finish on Waterway Ave.
A local Thanksgiving morning tradition, YMCA Run Thru the Woods, presented by Huntsman, has supported local non-profits with the goal of strengthening The Woodlands, Spring and Oak Ridge communities for 28 years. The event brings thousands of community members together for entertainment and runs/walks designed for all ages.
