We are back again for 2013, still looking to improve on last year. Please bring your family with you to the race this year. Well have the splash pool open for the kids after the last athlete finishes the swim. And of course the playground next to the finish area is a great place for the kids to play. The jumpoline and the misting tent will be back again. We also plan on having face painting for the kids.
This is the third year that the 3 Little Pigs Triathlon has been held. The swim is in the new Smithfield Recreation and Aquatics Center in Smithfield, and is a 250 yards pool swim. The bike course takes you from the SRAC into rural Johnston County on a scenic, but flat course. The run course is an out-and-back course that will take you through Smithfields community park and onto its new Buffalo Creek Greenway and back to SRAC.
Swim Times: All participants must submit a 100 meter swim time for seeding purposes. Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest. If you know any previous swim time from a practice, race, etc., we have supplied a distance calculator next to your estimated swim time. By seeding yourself properly, you'll end up swimming near people who swim the same pace as you. This will reduce the number of people who you will need to pass or the number of people who will be passing you.
