OVERVIEW

River Roux was founded in 2012 and is owned by Rocketkidz Foundation.  The race takes place on False River, in New Roads, Louisiana and attracts athletes across the country.  

River Roux features a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride over the Audubon Bridge into St. Francisville, and a 13.1-mile run in historic New Roads. The race has aquabike, duathlon, and relay divisions.  It wraps up with awards and a finish festival at The Landing Bar, on the banks of False River. 

Rajun' Roux is a shorter distance version of River Roux that includes a 1200-meter swim, 30-mile bike, and 8.6-mile run.  All courses take place on the River Roux course.  

 

RKF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to create and sustain active, fit and healthy children, families and communities through programming, advocacy and education, as an effort to fight childhood obesity through multisport events and camp scholarship and grant programs.  RKF also gives back to local schools/clubs in the cities that welcome us there, such as Boy Scouts, parish and city programs, 4-H, local schools, and more.
