Due to the safety of the participants and road opening times, course time limits will be set for the 2014 triathlon.
CB&I TRI – The Woodlands race staff reserves the right to remove an athlete from the course and DNF the athlete if our course staff determines there is no possibility of an athlete finishing the given discipline (swim, bike, run) before the posted cut-off times based on an athlete’s location, time and average speed up to that point.
