​Welcome to the Tarpon Triathlon.  ​We are an annual triathlon held in the bayou region of South Louisiana.  Our race began in 2010 & has been going strong ever since!  In 2011, we were recognized in Competitor Magazine as one of three "Great Southern Races".  This is a sprint distance race with a pool swim.  The bike & run portions are along Southdown Mandalay Road which parallels the gentle curves of Bayou Black.   The road has several oak trees along the sides, which makes for a scenic race.  This is a USAT sanctioned race.
