On Sunday, August 24, 2014, triathletes from around North America will find out what it takes to be a Superior Man! The third edition of the Superior Man Triathlon will challenge even the heartiest of endurance athletes as they “Escape from the Vista Fleet” into the Bay of Lake Superior.
A jump start off of a cruise ship and a transition area inside an arena are just a part of what makes this event unique. The Superior Man delivers a big-race feel with a signature small town Duluth flavor!
The 2014 Superior Man Triathlon is a long distance triathlon featuring a 1.2 mile rectangular swim from the Vista Fleet to Bayfront Festival Park, and fast bike and run courses along the scenic North Shore of Lake Superior of 56 and 13.1 miles. The transition area inside the DECC Arena and finish line under the arches of Bayfront Park are just feet apart, set against the beautiful backdrop of Lake Superior and Duluth’s Aerial Lift Bridge. New this year is the “41.5” race with the same features as the long course. The 41.5 Tri is .5 mile swim, 35.4 mile ride, and 5.4 mile run.
The Superior Man weekend kicks off with packet pickup at Pallucci Hall in the DECC on Saturday. Pick up your race packet, drop off your bike, and check out the course before the big race day. Also, stay tuned for important athlete meetings at packet pickup. Race day is an all-day spectacle, beginning in the wee hours of the morning as athletes will make their way into transition. When the first athlete crosses the finish line in Bayfront Festival Park, the party begins! Join us in Bayfront Festival Park as athletes, fans, sponsors, and spectators alike gather for a post-race party! Overall and age group winners receive a custom award.
