Shrineman, the first (in 2015) and only half distance triathlon in Shreveport, offers a challenging course nestled between the scenic shores of Cross Lake and Caddo Lake. Athletes begin their day with a 1.2-mile, one-loop swim in Cross Lake, staged at the El Karubah Shrine. The 56-mile bike course takes cyclists on a one-loop ride through the quaint towns of Blanchard and Mooringsport and offers stunning views of Cross Lake and Caddo Lake. The 13.1-mile, three-loop run is hilly and spectator-friendly, taking athletes through Ford Park and along Cross Lake.
Shrineman-Olympic challenges triathletes with a mighty course and the only international distance triathlon in Shreveport-Bossier. Athletes begin their day with a 0.93-mile swim in Cross Lake, staged at the El Karubah Shrine. Next, racers cycle 24.8 miles on an out-and-back course with some rolling hills and beautiful Cross Lake as a backdrop.  Finally, athletes take on on a hilly and demanding 6.2 mile run course through Western Hills and Ford Park to the finish.
Shrineman also offers a long course individual aquabike comprised of the same swim and bike courses as the half distance triathlon.
For team-spirited athletes, Shrineman offers 2-person and 3-person relays for the half distance triathlon.
