Description

River Roux Olympic Triathlon 2024

108 East Main Street
New Roads, LA US 70860

 

The 2024 River Roux Olympic Triathlon will be held on October 5th!  

River Roux features a 1.5K swim, 40K bike ride, and a 10K run in historic New Roads. The race has aquabike, duathlon, and relay divisions.  It wraps up with awards and a finish fest in the greenspace across from transition. ​

RKF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create and sustain active, fit and healthy children, families and communities through programming, advocacy and education, as an effort to fight childhood obesity through multisport events and camp scholarship and grant programs.  RKF also gives back to local schools/clubs in the cities that welcome us there, such as Boy Scouts, parish and city programs, 4-H, local schools, and more.  

Entries are limited to 300 competitors for 2024. 

SWIM
The swim course will be a double loop clockwise swim that begins and ends at the floating dock. Starting at 6:45 a.m. we will have a designated swim warm up area for your use with safety personnel managing the area. The entire course is not open for warm up.  Athletes will enter and exit False River at the floating dock. Athletes will be staged along the grass area behind the ramp.

We will have safety personnel on the course. You may hang on to kayaks and paddle boards to catch your breath but cannot use them to make any forward progress. Your safety is our primary concern, and we urge you to raise your hand to alert safety personnel if you are in distress.  Similarly, if you observe another athlete in clear distress, please stop and alert safety personnel.  Upon exiting the swim course, you will run straight up the gangway of the floating dock and along the carpeted area leading to the stairs to access the transition area.   

Self-Seeded Start

Athletes will seed themselves according to swim pace.  Swimmers will enter the water 1 at a time, every 3 seconds. 

Waves

The swim is a time trial start.  

BIKE

The bike course is an out-and-back around False River.  The road is currently under construction at approximately mile 11.  According to DOTD, the project is expected to be complete by August of 2024.

Remember that all the roads on the bike course will remain open to traffic throughout the race. We will have police and volunteers at major intersections, but you are still to ride with safety as your primary priority. Every turn on the course will be marked with signs to the right side of the road, as well as orange marks in the road. ​

There will be SAG support vehicles on the bike course providing assistance with minor mechanical issues throughout the day.

RUN
River Roux run course (coming soon!).  There will be 4-5 aid stations on the course. We will be serving water, Powerade, and gels (variety of flavors) at all aid stations.
