Root River Triathlon

This “doable”, non-swimming triathlon is set in the Root River valley in scenic Bluff Country.  

The first triathlon was held 1998 by the City of Houston. Participation is open to men and women of every age (young people of 17 years and younger with the consent of their guardian).

Participants begin by canoeing or kayaking 6.8 miles down river from Houston to Mound Prairie. Then they hop on their bikes for an 7.9 mile road-ride back to Houston. Some hills  “en-route” are challenging and demand an extra effort.  The race wraps up with a 3 mile, fairly level run, starting on the Root River trail and then through the streets of Houston. 

We have several ways for you to join in on the FUN!  You may register as:

  • an Individual Canoe,
  • Individual Kayak,
  • 2-person Canoe (canoe together then complete your ride & run separately),
  • 2-person kayak (kayak together then complete your ride & run separately),
  • or as a Relay Team (each person doing a leg).

Registrations after 5/8/23 are not guaranteed a shirt so sign up early!
