Thousands of athletes are putting on their running shoes and swimming caps to compete in Austin for the Life Time Tri CapTex. This of course also means there are a lot of road closures and detours in place as they make their way through downtown.
A full map and list of closures and alternative routes can be found here.
The CapTex is a Memorial Day tradition and has been going on for 28 years. It's one of eight events around the country that is a part of the Life Time Tri series.
Athletes kicked off the triathlon swimming in Lady Bird Lake which is followed by a bike ride up Congress Avenue to the Capitol and back South Loop along Cesar Chavez.
The competition ends with a run looping through West Riverside, Butler Park, Barton Springs Pool and finishing at Auditorium Shores.
There are three types of courses and all have varying degrees of difficulty.
