The Southern Hills Triathlon is sponsored by The Friends of the Hot Springs Library and takes place at Angostura Recreation Area in the Black Hills south of Hot Springs, SD. The park is a wonderful natural area and one of the best race venues in the state with a pristine sand beach (no rocks, no weeds); a rolling bike course through neighboring ranchland; 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, SD, snacks and goodies the day of the race, and a race t-shirt. We hope you enjoy yourself and return for future races. While you race, remember that the funds associated with this activity are helping the local library grow stronger and more active.
