What is the American Triple-T? Well, it's everything you've heard it to be, and more. The event is so much more than your typical "triathlon weekend" it's a triathlon achievement of epic proportions for all who partake. It is 3 consecutive days of racing, gelling together 4 races covering a total of more than 140 miles for the weekend. You will find yourself swimming in the chilly spring-fed Turkey Creek Lake, riding the most technically challenging hills in the Shawnee State Forest region, and finishing with out-and-back runs along the fire roads climbing and descending those same hillsides.
The American Triple-T is not for the weak or faint of spirit. It has humbled many triathletes who didn't take it seriously, and it validates a host of others who test their "tri-mettle" at the "T" every year. Athletes from all 50 states, and 4 continents have all sought the privilege of earning their American Triple-T finisher T-shirt. Competitors, volunteers and spectators all come away with a new appreciation of the sport and of the athletes who train and tame mind and body to complete this legendary event.
You'll also come away with newfound friendships, and you'll solidify those bonds every year you come together to face this demon. There are even a special few who turned their initial shared experiences at the American Triple-T into a union of souls, and they came back the next year to compete as husband and wife! While we cannot guarantee that you'll find your soul mate at the "T", we will guarantee an incredible, unforgettable experience unique in the triathlon world.
