TOUGHMMAN Enterprises has bolstered its race series with a new event, TOUGHMAN Ohio, which will take place in Salt Fork Park, Cambridge, Ohio, in June 2019. The event is produced by local event organizer HFP Racing with Salt Fork Lodge & Conference Center.
Salt Fork State Park is nestled in the Appalachian Hills of southeastern Ohio; and TOUGHMAN Ohio 2019 will serve as the final event of the American Triple-T Ohio event weekend, giving athletes an opportunity to compete alongside Triple-T participants as they battle to the finish. The organisers add that TOUGHMAN Ohio will challenge all ability levels as athletes take on a challenging bike and run course.
According to race director Shannon Kurek, “The Salt Fork region is dubbed the ‘Crossroads of America’. The region is found nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains along I-70 and I-77. Salt Fork Lodge & Conference Center is tucked away in the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio just a short drive from Cambridge, in Ohio’s largest state park. The lush wooded surroundings boast miles of recreational trails, wildlife, and impressive views of the sparkling lake.”
100 qualifiers from TOUGHMAN Ohio will compete at the TOUGHMAN NY Championships on September 15th 2019.
The TOUGHMAN Series currently consists of 15 races in the US and South America, with current events including: Cambridge, Ohio; Iquique, Chile; Futrono, Chile; Paulinia, Brazil; San Pedro, Argentina; Arica, Chile; Quillon, Chile; Mayaguez, Puerto Rico; and further stateside events in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Park City, Utah, Columbia, South Carolina and Lenoir City, Tennessee.
