Festival Overview

Welcome to the Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival!

TriSports Racing is pleased to present the 15th Annual Deuces Wild Endurance Festival!  The Deuces Wild Endurance Festival is the premiere triathlon and run event in Arizona and consists of 10 races - four triathlons (an Olympic Distance triathlon, the DeuceMan Long Course Triathlon, the Youth Triathlon and an off-road XTERRA America Tour triathlon), an AquaBike (swim/bike) and four runs (Half Marathon, 10k and 5k, and 8k trail run).  Escape the heat and race with us!

100% of proceeds from the race will benefit various charities, especially the  Challenged Athletes Foundation and local White Mountain organizations.

The DeuceMan Long Course Triathlon will kick off the weekend on Saturday by taking athletes on a scenic tour of the White Mountains.  The Olympic Distance Triathlon will follow by taking athletes out of Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area, into the Ponderosa Pines and through the city of Show Low. This action-packed day will also have all three of our run events (Half Marathon, 10k and 5k). Finish off the race day by participating or volunteering in our Youth Triathlon, a triathlon for the budding athletes!

On Sunday, the XTERRA Deuces Wild Triathlon and our 8k trail run will continue the festivities. The race is a part of the XTERRA American Tour where athletes can earn points toward becoming Regional Champions and qualifying for the XTERRA USA Championships. With a reputation as one of the best races on the XTERRA Tour, the course provides a good mix of terrain and complexity. 

Parts of these races take place on National Forest System lands.

If you are racing on one day, please consider volunteering on the day you don’t race.  Or if you are tough enough, try the double and race on both days.

Please check back often for race information updates.

The Deuces Wild Endurance Festival includes 10 events: Long Course (DeuceMan) Triathlon, Olympic Triathlon, XTERRA Triathlon,Youth Triathlon, AquaBike (swim/bike), Half Marathon Run, 10k Run, 5k Run, 32k Trail Run and 8k Trail Run - 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.
