It’s All About Fun at the Deuces Wild Endurance Festival

Held yearly in the cool White Mountains of northeastern Arizona over two days in June—June 8 and 9 this year—the Deuces Wild Endurance Festival features 15 separate races to choose from, including triathlons, aquabikes, runs and relays. Deuces Wild is also home to the Triathlon Club and Team World Championships, with people from around the world coming to compete for the coveted titles.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran or doing your very first triathlon, Deuces Wild has a race and distance for you. Five different triathlons are offered for the entire family: DeuceMan Long Course, Olympic, Sprint, XTERRA and Youth. Starting at 5 years old, kids can race in the youth triathlon.

Deuces Wild also offers a half marathon, 10K and 5K, as well as an 8K trail run. In addition to the triathlons, aquabikes and runs, there are also relays in many of the triathlons, and during and after events, there is incredible food and activities to keep attendees entertained.
