smt-logoOn Sunday, August 30th, 2015, triathletes from around North America will find out what it takes to be a Superior Man! The fourth 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 Duluth flavor!

The 2015 Superior Man Triathlon features two distances to choose from: long course triathlon (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run) and 41.5 triathlon (.5 mile swim, 35.4 mile bike, 5.6 mile run). The swim starts with boat jump from the Vista Fleet into the Bay of Lake Superior and goes in a rectangular direction. After transitioning inside the DECC Arena, athletes will enjoy fast bike and run courses along the scenic North Shore of Lake Superior. The finish area under the arches of Bayfront Park is set against the beautiful backdrop of Lake Superior and Duluth’s Aerial Lift Bridge, an ideal setting for our finisher’s celebration.

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. Be sure to attend our important athlete meeting at packet pickup.

Race day is an all-day spectacle, beginning in the wee hours of the morning when athletes 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 Epicurean cutting board.
