The 2012 Rocketchix II triathlon took place Saturday, July 28th, on LSU’s campus in and around the Natatorium area of the university. This all-female race is a great race for new triathletes looking to give racing a “tri”, but also a great sprint for veterans as well.
The course consisted of a 250 meter swim in LSU’s pool, a 11.3 mile out and back bike ride along River Rd. and a 2 mile run through part of LSU’s campus.
As volunteers and even racers are shouting out encouragement through out the whole course; the race announcer even calls out your name as you cross the finish line.
Julie Martin won the road bike divison with a time of 54:10. The overall winner of the fat tire division was incorrect. We’ll update with official results soon.
