Big Tortuga 2015 Willis TX?

Does anyone have any knowledge about whether the 10K swim race Big Tortuga in Willis, TX will happen this year? And if so, what dates?? Their website has no dates, and it seems from their Facebook page that a May event(shorter distance swims) was cancelled. Makes me wonder, and I need to plan ahead.

    I would guess that it will, but I haven't seen a date or an email about it yet. The RD had to cancel his spring 5k this year due to lack of police support, but the 5k is not an escorted swim, and the 10k is, so I'm not sure how much police support he would need for the 10k. If you PM me, I can give you my email and forward you the informational email when/if I get it.

    I live about a 45 minute drive from there now, so unless I end up with something out of town that conflicts with it, I'm certainly planning on being there.

  • Thanks! I have another question but will PM you.

    Emailed with the race director this morning about the 5k he had to cancel for tomorrow, and he told me he isn't going to be staging his 10k this fall, unfortunately

  • Yes, I also gathered fom my emai with him that it may be put in in April or May 2016. hope so!
