Mission Statement

“We are committed to support and grow the sport of triathlon in the state of Mississippi and beyond. We will continue to emphasize the importance of an active, healthy lifestyle while giving back to children and their families in our local community.” The Deep South Triathlon Team

About DST:

Deep South Triathlon is Mississippi’s only half distance triathlon.  Our race starts with a 1.2 mile Beach entry open water swim in the Ross Barnett Reservoir, transitions to a 56 mile bike through the rolling hills of Rankin and Scott counties, and finishes with a 13.1 mile run on the paved multipurpose trail that brings you home for a spectacular Finish Line experience. You can find more information about Deep South Triathlon at deepsouthtriathlon.com

Who’s Behind DST:

Deep South Triathlon is a production of Mississippi Race Management.  MRM is a Madison County Mississippi based full service turn-key race Management Company that focuses on producing first class events including triathlon and running races of all different distances in the great state we call home.  You can find out more information about us at msracemanagement.com

The DST Difference:

We are an independent race that puts the athlete first in every decision that is made.  A race truly designed by triathletes and made with the wants and needs of triathletes in mind. 

We are so excited about our partnership for 2021!  Part of a triathlon is the courage to take the first step, the motivation to continue even when it gets hard, and the joy of celebrating your victory of success.  Likewise, what makes camp so special are the brave campers who are running a hard race of doctor’s visits, chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and other aspects of their diagnosis.  However, at camp, we rejoice in celebrating the victories!  We don’t run alone but together as a community of individuals who don’t just understand but belong.

Camp Rainbow is a pediatric cancer camp in Mississippi for children ages 6 – 17.   Camp Rainbow has traditional camp activities but is tailored for children who currently have or have had a cancer diagnosis.  Volunteers from across the State come together for four days to create an environment of belonging and fun, a community of people who truly understand, and a place where every child belongs.  

Camp Rainbow is a camp dedicated to Mississippi’s pediatric cancer patients and survivors.  Camp Rainbow helps shape the lives of our campers and helps them grow and develop as individuals.  For more information about Camp Rainbow, visit their website at camprainbowms.com
