overview

 

Louisiana Tri was founded in 1989 and the tradition of a well-organized sprint triathlon remains strong.  It became a member of the Rocketkidz Foundation (RKF) family in 2012 with 100% of the proceeds from the race benefiting RKF.  The race takes place on False River, in New Roads, Louisiana and attracts athletes throughout the south.  

 

The 2018 Louisiana Triathlon features an 800m swim, a flat 18-mile bike ride around False River, and a flat and fast 5K in historic New Roads. The race wraps up with awards and a finish festival at The Landing Bar, on the banks of False River. 

 

Over the last 5 years, the race has grown from 70 participants to selling out at 375 last year.  This means that more kids and communities that support RKF’s mission will benefit from the proceeds!  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.
