IRONMAN Americas Championship

APRIL 22, 2023

Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Texas draws athletes and spectators to The Woodlands from around the world each year. After successfully hosting IRONMAN North America Championship for many years, the 2023 event has been designated as the 2023 Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Americas Championship Texas triathlon! 

The triathlon leads athletes along a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, and 26.2-mile run throughout The Woodlands and its surrounding areas. The race starts with a swim that takes place in Lake Woodlands and ends with a run entirely within The Woodlands that concludes with a finish along the picturesque Woodlands Waterway across The Waterway Avenue Bridge.


The Children’s IRONKIDS Texas Fun Run offers young athletes the opportunity to feel the excitement of competition while enjoying the outdoors and promoting healthy living. The fun run is for infants (who can crawl) and kiddos up to age 17. Each athlete receives a race bib, finisher shirt, medal, goodie bag, and pride of calling themselves an IRONKID! This year, IRONKIDS will be held on Saturday, April 15, just one week before IRONMAN Americas.


New this year, dogs and their people are invited to participate in a fun run of their own! There are .5-mile and 1-mile options to choose from, and all participants will receive a t-shirt as part of their registration. The Doggie Dash will take place after IRONKIDS on April 15, 2023.
