Race Overview

Punishment Scale: 2 stars out of 4

The Shawnee area is dubbed Ohio's Little Smokies. Looking toward the Ohio River, one can certainly see how the region acquired such a nickname. From the highest points in the forest, ridge after ridge appears to roll away toward the horizon in a gentle blue haze.

HFP Racing and Shawnee State Park and Forest invite you to Ohio's season opening long course triathlon — The Little Smokies Triathlon. This exciting course serves as the final event of the American Triple-T Ohio event, giving you an opportunity to compete alongside Triple-T participants as they battle for top honors. Shawnee State Park is nestled in the Appalachian Hills of southern Ohio. The Little Smokies Triathlon will challenge all ability levels as you take on this challenging bike and run course.
