Triathlon: HITS Triathlon Series Welcomes Athletes Back to the Hills of Texas

MARBLE FALLS, TX ( June 14, 2013) Registration opens today, June 14, for the 2014 HITS Triathlon Series event in Marble Falls, Texas April 26-27 of next year. To register for HITS Marble Falls 2014, please visit HitsTriathlonSeries.com.

In 2013, there were hills and there was heat, but the athletes ate up every mile of it on the courses at HITS Marble Falls. HITS will return to Lakeside Park for the third time next year after they debuted at the location in 2012. Enjoying a 30% growth rate in 2013, race officials are excited at the prospect of Marble Falls, Texas becoming one of the more popular events on the HITS Triathlon Series schedule.

"These athletes get to experience what true Texas racing is all about," said HITS Race Director Mark H. Wilson. "The support from the local triathlete community for this race has been overwhelming the last two years and we always want to return to those kinds of venues."

Boasting the "a distance for everyone!"(TM) mantra, HITS Triathlon Series will offer five distances in Marble Falls, including the Sprint, Olympic, Half, and Full, as well as the popular HITS Open, and will cap each at 500 athletes. Athletes will again enjoy a calm-water swim with perfect temperatures at Lakeside Park, and challenging bike and run courses in the hills of Texas for the Sprint, Olympic, Half and Full distance events.

Finalized course maps will be posted in the coming weeks. Lodging, a race day schedule and other important information is available at HitsTriathlonSeries.com.

All 2014 events will offer qualifying opportunities for HITS Athlete of the Year Awards, which will be presented at the HITS Championship in Palm Springs, California December 7-8, 2014.
