Our Green Efforts

Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival Goes Green!

Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival has always been dedicated to reducing the impact our events have on the environment. Beginning in 2009, we made a pledge to increase our efforts so that we have as little unusable waste as possible. Our landfill waste has dropped by over 200% since we instituted these efforts!


We are partnering with the Pinetop-Lakeside Sanitary District to compost everything we possibly can.  They will accept all of our food waste, plates, napkins, utensils and cups, plus paper and cardboard.  This waste will go through their treatment and become a soil additive.

No Print Registration

Mailing in a registration form wastes paper and resources, so we have done away with it! Go green with us and register online now!

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Offset your carbon footprint by using Carbonfund’s calculator to figure out how much carbon you used to get to the race, then make a donation to offset your impact on the environment. Visit their website to learn more, or start calculating now!

Recycling & Composting Stations

We will have recycling and composting stations all around our venue that will direct you where to put what kind of waste.

Digital Goodie Bags and Race Packets

We will be sending all of our race information digitally to those athletes signed up in advance, and it will be available on our website for those who sign up on-site.


You have the option to decline a race shirt, saving resources instead of wasting them on something you won't wear!

Our Green Efforts

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.
