Towne Lake recently partnered with Onurmark Productions to host its third annual Triathlon in Cypress, Texas. More than 1,400 athletes competed in the event, which drew approximately 1,200 spectators and raised more than $10,000 for SEARCH Homeless Services.
“We would like to thank the dedicated athletes and thoughtful volunteers who made this event possible,” says Laurie Stephens, marketing assistant of Caldwell Companies. “Their true commitment was on display at the event, which due to poor weather conditions, forced us to cancel the bike portion of the race. Despite the weather, we were very pleased with the turnout and had a great time raising awareness for SEARCH and celebrating these athletic achievements.”
SEARCH Homeless Services works to engage, stabilize, educate, employ and house individuals and families who are homeless through a variety of outreach programs in the Greater Houston area.
Again this year, local athletes chose to compete in either the sprint distance or Olympic distance courses, which were both located within Towne Lake. The courses utilized the community’s namesake lake, and extensive road and trail systems. The sprint distance event included a 500-meter swim followed by a three-mile run, while the Olympic distance race included 1,500-meter swim, and 6.2-mile run.
Top female and male finishers for the sprint distance course were Lindsey Bateman (31:19.8) and Andy Borremans (time 25:29.9). Top finishers for the Olympic distance were Sarah Gray (1:03:20.0) and Weslie Anderson (58:06.8).
