Beast of the Brazos

The Beast of the Brazos is an open-water swim in between the banks of the Brazos in Waco, TX. This swim will feature a similar route as for a full IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 Waco with 1.2 and 2.4 mile route options. All registered swimmers will receive a swim cap and t-shirt, as well as a finisher’s medal for those who make it past…The Beast!

Wetsuit classification is only relevant for determining the top 3 age group for male and female awards.  If you register for wetsuit, but decide to change into non wetsuit the morning of, there’s no consequences, but please let us know!  You just won’t be able to qualify for a top 3 age group awards. 

All proceeds from this race will benefit the non-profit and 501(c)(3), The Greater Waco Sports Commission, which is devoted to providing opportunities to enhance the lives of those living in Waco and McLennan County through sport and exercise.
