Worried about the impact triathlon events may have on the forests where we have them? XTERRA sponsor Paul MItchell has stepped up and will plant a tree for free, just click the image below and use code XTERRAME to help in the efforts towards reforestation!
Due to some road restrictions in Show Low on Saturday, we have had to swap race days. The XTERRA will now be taking place on Saturday with the youth triathlon, and the Olympic and DeuceMan will be on Sunday. Hope to see you there!
We realized that we had so much awesome representation from clubs at the 2016 event that we want to come up with a way to further engage and bring out that team spirit! Starting in 2017, we will be adding the Deuces Wild Tri Club Challenge! Teams will vie for the coveted Tri Club Challenge traveling award, and bragging rights, of course! Bonus points awarded for volunteers! Don't see your club name listed in registration? Just let us know and we'll get it added. See you at the races!
2016 results for DeuceMan, Olympic and Youth are now available here. Thanks so much for coming out to race...we couldn't have done it without you! We even had some course records fall:
- Shawna Glazier set a new record of 2:36:07 for the women's DeuceMan bike split, breaking Catherine Dickson's 2009 time of 2:37:04!
- Monica Folts set a new record of 1:36:38 for the women's DeuceMan run split, breaking Hayley Benson's 2010 time of 1:39:14!
- Ryan Hardy set a new OVERALL course record of 1:58:50 for the men's Olympic Distance, breaking Lewis Elliot's 2013 time of 2:01:59!
- Leo Carrillo set a new record of 56:38 for the men's Olympic bike split, breaking Seth Wilkie's 2008 time of 58:37 (Michael Whitesides also broke the old record with a time of 57:44)!
The Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival includes Long Course, Olympic, and XTERRA triathlon events, as well as a Youth triathlon, so it truly is a family event! The White Mountains offer a cool reprieve from the hotter temperatures experienced in other parts of Arizona, and showcase some breathtaking scenery throughout the courses. Need more reasons to come race with us? 100% of proceeds from the events go to charity, and we are also a green event! All races will be sanctioned by USAT and are made possible with the cooperation of Arizona State Parks, AZ Game & Fish, the City of Show Low, the US Forest Service and ADOT. The event is conducted on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests.
