Robious Landing Triathlon

The Robious Landing Triathlon is a multisport tradition in Richmond which is being brought back for 2023 after a 3-year hiatus.  Staged at the beautiful Robious Landing Park in Chesterfield, VA, this course treats participants to a fast downriver swim, flat out-and-back bike, and exciting run on trails and neighborhood roads.  The 2023 event will feature both youth and adult events.  For the adult race, we have shortened the bike slightly from previous versions to make it a true sprint triathlon with all 3 disciplines balanced.  Perfect for all experience levels!

Why We Race

All Live Red Foundation events provide the funding for Live Red Foundation’s free fitness programs which teach life skills to children in low-opportunity communities.  Learn more >>
