Lincoln Parish Park along with Piney Hills Tri Club will host Ruston's 3rd Annual Piney Hills Kids Triathlon.
Pine Cones - Ages 7-8 & 9-10 100 Yd. Swim, 3.1 Mile Bike, 3/4 Mile Run
Pine Trees - Ages 11-12, 13-14 & 15-16 200 Yd. Swim, 6.2 Mile Bike, 1.2 Mile Run
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!
