AUSTIN -- More than 600 athletes competed in the 2013 Couples Triathlon at Walter E. Long Park on Sunday.
They competed in an 800-meter swim, a 11.2-mile bike ride and a 3.1-mile run.
This particular triathlon is unique. Each athlete in the two-person "couples" team does the entire triathlon, and their times are combined for overall scores.
