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.
