THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodforest Bank TRI–The Woodlands is set for this Saturday, May 6, 2023, beginning at 7 a.m. The Woodforest Bank TRI is a USA Triathlon (USAT) sanctioned event, featuring a field of 800 participants.

To ensure runner and spectator safety for the event, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will be responsible for closing and re-opening lanes on streets along the race route. Residents are advised to plan accordingly during the morning hours of the event.

The race will start and finish at Northshore Park, and portions of Lake Woodlands, Gosling, Research Forest, Woodlands Parkway, Cochran’s Crossing Drive and Grogan’s Mill Road will be used for the race. It is expected that some traffic delays will be experienced during the morning, in and around the race route. Residents are encouraged to avoid delays and use alternate routes around the race, as areas along the race course will be closed to automobile traffic from 6 to 10:30 a.m.

After the race starts, roads will reopen on a rolling basis as soon as the last participant has passed, and all course support materials have been removed. These particular areas will be congested throughout the event, and residents are encouraged to use extreme caution while traveling throughout the course.

There will be a police officer at every intersection along the race route, and deputies will attempt to allow cars through, if and only when there is a safe opportunity. View estimated road opening times here. Course maps can be accessed online at the following link:
