This is the 9th year that the 3 Little Pigs Triathlon has been held. The swim is in the beautiful Smithfield Recreation and Aquatics Center in Smithfield, and is a 250 yards pool swim. The 14 mile bike course takes you from the SRAC into rural Johnston County on a scenic, but flat course. The 5k run course is an out-and-back course that will take you through Smithfield’s community park and onto the Buffalo Creek Greenway and back to SRAC.
Swim Times: All participants must submit a 250 yard swim time for seeding purposes. Being a pool swim with a staggered start, participants are seeded from fastest to slowest. If you know any previous swim time from a practice, race, etc., we have supplied a distance calculator next to your estimated swim time. By seeding yourself properly, you'll end up swimming near people who swim the same pace as you. This will reduce the number of people who you will need to pass or the number of people who will be passing you.
Parking will be available at both the Smithfield Community Park and Smithfield-Selma Senior High School, both of which are located adjacent to SRAC. However, those wishing to park in the Community Park (which is closer) will need to be parked by 7:15 a.m. and will not be allowed to leave until approximately 10:30 a.m. when the race finishes.
We will not be providing race maps or info sheets at packet pickup. Please print this info out if you need detailed race info!
