2017 Havasu Triathlon and Toughman Half Arizona
Maybe you aren’t ready to participate in the 2017 Havasu Triathlon and Toughman Half Arizona yourself. That’s OK. You can still cheer these athletes on. This marks the earliest triathlon for the season. That means that triathletes from around the country descend upon our fair city to compete. First, these amazing athletes begin with a 1.2 mile swim in the lake. Then, they hop on their bikes for a 56 mile ride. Finally, they finish off with a 13.1 mile run. But that’s just one part of the day.
The 2017 Havasu Triathlon includes an Olympic Triathlon and a Sprint Triathlon in addition to the Toughman Half Arizona.
