In 2011, LeadmanTri was launched as the Evolution of Triathlon. The event challenged athletes with a course and conditions so extreme, finishing became more about mental toughness than sheer talent.
The 2012 LeadmanTri Bend will take place on Saturday, September 22. This epic triathlon will feature a swim in Cultus Lake, a bike trek around Mount Bachelor and a run down the Deschutes River Trail. Athletes have a choice between the full 250K distance, a half (125K) or a relay. All proceeds from the relay entries support the local Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Oregon. Teams will even have a chance to win their entire relay’s weight in beer, courtesy of Visit Bend and Deschutes Brewery.
You’ll be giving it your all on race day. We intend to do the same by making LeadmanTri a better triathlon experience. From our course to amenities to our volunteers and giveaways, we want to make sure you leave with the intent to return. Participants, please be sure to read the 2012 athlete guide, available here, so you know what to expect.
Our staff hopes that you not only enjoy the challenge LeadmanTri presents, but also the amazing scenery of the beautiful terrain in and around Bend, Oregon. Good luck, and have a great race!
