THE SOUTHERN HILLS TRIATHLON

Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022
Hot Springs, South Dakota

This year marks the 25th Annual Southern Hills Triathlon! We are very excited to be considered one of the premier triathlon venues in South Dakota . The race event takes place at Angostura Recreation Area in the Black Hills, south of Hot Springs. The park is a wonderful natural area with a pristine sand beach (no rocks, no weeds); a rolling bike course through neighboring ranch land; and a wonderfully scenic run path along the lake shore. The event includes a pre-race pasta dinner Friday night at the Masonic Lodge in Hot Springs.  Snacks and goodies are provided on the day of the race, and be sure to sign up early enough to guarantee a race t-shirt. Medals are given to all youth and adult finishers. First, Second and Third Place Awards are given for adult age groups and First Place Overall awards are given for the Olympic and Sprint distances. We hope you enjoy yourself and return for future races. While you race, remember that the funds raised are helping the community library grow stronger and more active. This race is in cooperation with the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks and Friends of the Library in Hot Springs, SD.
