Texas Winter 100K
25 January 2020
The Texas Winter 100k (TWO) launches it's 10th anniversary race from the banks of Lady Bird Lake (aka Town Lake) this coming January. The race will give paddlers a reason to get in shape and stay in shape throughout the winter.
New this year, we're going to experiment with allowing SUP's to compete in the full 62 mile length of the course. To do so with the least amount of disruption, SUP's can enter in a special Adventure Class. We've added a SUP category at the registration, for solo and tandem SUP's. SUPs who enter in the full course must adhere to Adventure Class race regulations. Race management will evaluate the outcome of the full course SUP race to determine whether this will be continued, deleted or altered for coming years.
Compared to most of the weather in the canoe racing world of North America, Texas is quite pleasant, with average highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's for January. That said, the temps have been known to get down to 38 °F and up to 85 °F, so anything can happen. Rainfall tends to be fairly moderate, but this is Texas, so it's anybody's guess. The 2011 race was a bit cold and drizzly, the 2012-2019 races were warmer and sunny, so definitely plan on any conditions.
