COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — More than 3,000 registrants will compete in swim-bike-run, run-bike-run, run-swim-run and swim-bike multisport races this Wednesday through Sunday in Irving, Texas, at the 2023 USA Triathlon Multisport National Championships Festival.
The Multisport National Championships Festival returns for the second consecutive year to Irving, Texas, bringing to Irving the nation’s best multisport athletes who will compete for age group national titles in the following National Championships:
• Draft-legal Triathlon National Championships

Athletes will compete in Irving at Levy Event Plaza, which opened in 2020 along Lake Carolyn as a dedicated outdoor hub for Irving community events. Athletes will swim in Lake Carolyn and the bike and run courses will take athletes on rolling hills through the main thoroughfares of Irving, including Las Colinas Boulevard, Lake Carolyn Parkway and Royal Lane.
In addition to racing for age group national championships, athletes will also have the opportunity to qualify to represent age group Team USA at 2024 World Triathlon Age Group World Championships.
