Venue and Transition Area

Like the past two years, the venue will be at the Beltway Baptist parking lot on FM 707 in Abilene, TX. Enter the parking lot off of FM 707 and head towards the back of the lot south of the church building. The start, finish, and transition area will be back there. You will need to pick up your number and timing chip between 7 and 7:30 am. The race will start promptly at 8.

There will be bike racks provided in the transition area. If you would like a towel or stool, please bring one with you. Please remember that no one is allowed on their bikes in the transition area. Also, a helmet must be worn for the bicycle portion of this event.

Come on out and support Habitat for Humanity while challenging yourself in the event. We hope to see you there!
