The Team Challenge is a complimentary, opt-in competition for all registered Sprint and International distance participants. Individual participants form teams, who compete using cross-country style scoring.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]

How It Works

Groups of 5-10 individuals form a team to compete for local bragging rights and prizes.  Finish times from each team’s fastest five finishers are combined (cross-country style) into a final score.

The Team Challenge is open to individuals and triathlon teams/clubs alike. The competition is available within both Sprint and International races, offering female, male and co-ed divisions. Details below.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]


  • Teams must consist of 5-10 amateur athletes; male, female or co-ed.
  • Co-ed Teams must consist of at least two males and two females.
  • Finish times from each team’s fastest five finishers will be combined to create a team’s final score (cross-country style).
  • Co-ed team scores will consist of the two fastest males, the two fastest females and the next fastest participant.
  • Teams with fewer than five people will not be eligible for competition.
  • Large groups/teams/clubs with more than 10 members must create multiple teams. Example: If a club brings 100 athletes, they could create a maximum of 10 teams, each with unique names (ie. “Fast Team, Beer Team, etc.”).
  • Top three performing teams in each division (male, female, co-ed) with the fastest combined scores will receive awards – cash and prizes!
  • Participating team members will remain eligible for individual age group awards.

To Enroll

Enrolling in the Team Challenge is easy:

  • First, Team Captains should consider how they prefer to build their team(s). Those with large groups should consider how to break down the group into several smaller teams (i.e. create an internal competition by equally balancing teams, or stack the deck and try to win the competition outright).
  • Once they have a general idea, they can download and fill-out one of these enrollment forms:

Enrollment Form (select one)
Editable Excel File
Blank PDF File (.pdf)

  • Once complete, simply hand-deliver to the Solutions Desk at the CapTex Tri Packet Pick-Up. Race staff will quickly review, then load the teams into the timing systems.
  • Please guarantee team accuracy. Due to limited timelines, rosters are not able to be adjusted/changed once submitted.
