Buffalo Springs Tri

The Buffalo Springs Tri in Lubbock is a well-known triathlon classic which recently became a member event of Ironman. This year they'll be celebrating 20 years - will you be there? Let us know! & if you've been in the past, forward some pictures because we'd love to see them. (newsletter

For 2009, twenty-eight slots will be awarded at Buffalo Springs for the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona, HI on October 10, 2009. Many Austinites will be making the journey out to Lubbock and perhaps some will come back with a coveted Kona slot!

Here's some info on the event:
  • WHERE:
  • Buffalo Springs Lake, 5 miles southeast of Lubbock, Texas, East 50th St. (FM RD. 835)

  • WHEN:
  • June 28, 2009
  • TIME:
  • 6:30 AM (please note that some of the particular details may change)

  • Semi-Arid (You don't sweat in the shade!) Average High 90.8 degrees; Average Low 64.3 degrees; Average Humidity 20-35%; Average Wind South 10-13 m.p.h. Note: Due to the extreme temperatures experienced in the 1994 race, (a history making 113 degrees F.), Buffalo Springs Lake Triathlon race management has established a policy that we may alter the race based on extreme weather conditions. You will be advised the day before if changes are required.
If you're participating, we hope you have a great race!
