Piney Hills Kids Triathlon


June 24, 2023 @ 7:30 am
211 Parish Park Rd. 
Ruston, LA 71270


Lincoln Parish Park along with Piney Hills Tri Club will host Ruston's 7th Annual Piney Hills Kids Triathlon.


Race Distances: 


Pine Cones - Ages 7-8 & 9-10         100 yd swim, 2.5 Mile Bike, .75 Mile Run  *(Course Distance Subject to Change)

Pine Trees - Ages 11-12, 13-14 & 15-17      200 yd swim, 5 Mile Bike, 1.2 Mile Run  *(Course Distance Subject to Change)

The child's age is calculated by USAT rule as to how old they will be on 12/31/23. This will determine which age group they will participate in.


The swim will take place in the open water lake in the designated swim areas.  Most athletes will be able to touch bottom but we discourage using it to advance the swimmer. It will be a timed trial entry into the water which means that each swimmer will enter the water every 10 seconds by bib number order.

The bike will be hilly, so plan on that.

The beautiful run will be flat and fast around the lake.

Come test your fitness and enjoy a kids only race!
