TOUGHMAN Enterprises, one of the leading triathlon event brands in North and South America, has confirmed the return of TOUGHMAN Utah in Park City, Utah, on June 23rd, 2018. Positioned as a festival weekend, the event will have an Olympic triathlon as well as the featured half distance event.
TOUGHMAN Utah is the fourth of 10 qualifiers for the TOUGHMAN series for 2018 with qualifying slots to the TOUGHMAN Championship sponsored by Morgan Stanley that will take place on Sept 16th in NY. All qualifiers will be eligible for a cash prize purse, while age group qualifiers will compete for over US$30,000 worth of awards.
Kick-starting the TOUGHMAN series in North America this year, the Utah event is the first of five TOUGHMAN series races in the US. The Utah swim course is set in a freshwater lake, with ‘one of the flattest bike courses in the US’. The organising team add that ‘the run course has scenic views of the mountains in the distance with a magnificent finish.’
The TOUGHMAN organising team note that ‘2018 is a huge year for the TOUGHMAN brand’… ‘New sponsors to join the TOUGHMAN family are Triathlete Magazine, the number one publication and website in the sport; Premium Plus Sports, one of the most respected names in sports travel; Events.com, one of the fastest growing online registration companies; and Lifetime Fitness.’
These sponsors will join returning supporters of TOUGHMAN, such as POLAR Electronics, Clif Bar and Security Risk Associates in 2018.
