Weather forecasters are calling for rain today and tomorrow, but so far it’s all systems go for Monday’s big downtown triathlon.

Stay tuned, though. That could change Sunday, depending on how much runoff goes into Lady Bird Lake, where the swim portion of the race is scheduled to take place.

Organizers of the Life Time Tri CapTex said this today:

“In coordination with the City of Austin and the Lower Colorado River Authority, we are continuing to monitor both water quality and water levels of Lady Bird Lake leading up to the Life Time Tri CapTex event on Monday, May 30. A final decision will be made on Sunday as to whether the swim portion of the race should continue or be cancelled and the race continue as a bike/run.”

Registration is still open for the event, which includes international, sprint and super sprint distance triathlons, plus relays, an aquabike division and a duathlon.

Registration fees range from $99 for the super sprint to $189 for the international distance relay through Saturday. On-site registration ranges from $119 for the super sprint to $209 for the international distance relay.
