Mighty Mujer Triathlon is an all-female race featuring two distances: Super Sprint and Sprint. Both distances start with a 300-yard swim in an indoor pool. The course then takes athletes on a challenging and rewarding bike route (1 loop for Super Sprint, 2 loops for Sprint). The race finishes off with a run through the beautiful Memorial Park area of Central El Paso (2 loops for Super Sprint, 3 loops for Sprint).

Mighty Mujer Triathlon empowers and supports new and experienced triathletes with fun and informative lead-up events and fantastic support on race day!
