DeuceMan Long Course Triathlon – Saturday

Swim 1.2 miles | Bike 57 miles | Run 13.1 miles

Individual Age Group, Individual AquaBike, Relay & Clydesdale/ Athena

The DeuceMan is the most challenging race at the Deuces Wild Endurance Festival and is a long-distance race covering over 70 miles. You will swim, bike, and run through some of the most beautiful scenery in Arizona and be on a course that will challenge you both physically and mentally.

DeuceMan Long Course AquaBike

The Deuces Wild DeuceMan AquaBike follows the exact same swim course and bike course as the DeuceMan Triathlon. Once you cross the timing station at the dismount line heading into T2 you are all done – no run for you! AquaBike finishers will not cross the actual finish line on their bike; however, we encourage you to make your way to the finish line to collect your medal and partake in the post-race activities!


SWIM COURSE – 1.2 MILES (CUT OFF TIME 1 hour 10 min after last start)

Expected water temperature for the race is between 58 & 65 degrees. Wetsuits are highly encouraged. We do abide by the USAT rules for wetsuit usage, which allows wetsuits to be used in water temperatures up to and including 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Between 78 and 84 degrees, wetsuits may be used, but participants will not be eligible for age group awards.

The swim will be a one-lap triangular course. Athletes will begin the race in the water or on the shore depending on the water level on race day. Wave information including swim start times can be found on our schedule. Once the swim begins, swimmers will proceed from the channel, veering right to the first large buoy. The course will be run in a counter-clockwise direction. Once you hit the first large buoy, turn left and swim to the second large buoy. Remember to keep all buoys on your left. At the second large buoy, turn left again and head for the finish. You do not need to round any buoys as you come back into the channel – just make the turn and head to the boat ramp and swim finish.

DEUCEMAN BIKE COURSE – 57 MILES (CUT-OFF TIME 5 h 30 min after last start)

This 57-mile ride will take you through Ponderosa pines, the high desert, and many small towns and communities. This course is hilly, but fast, with a few larger rollers at about the 40-mile mark. Aquabike folks get to call it a day after this!

DEUCEMAN RUN COURSE – 13.1 miles (Cutoff Time 3:00PM)

The DeuceMan run course takes athletes along a nicely groomed, scenic trail around Fool Hollow Lake and then into the campgrounds for a tour and lots of encouragement from the campers. A rolling out and back along 16th Ave lets you know where you stand in comparison to your competition, just know that it feels a lot longer than it really is! From there you’ll follow the roads back to the start/finish area, but if you are on lap 1, you’ll have to pass right by and do another short out and back before starting all over again. Next time you come around, though, you’ll take that right turn to the finish line!

Super Sprint Off-Road Triathlon – Sunday

Swim 300 meters | Bike ~8 kilometers | Run 3 kilometers

Individual Age Group

The Deuces Wild Super Sprint Off-Road Triathlon is a NEW EVENT in 2022. Why did we go to a Super Sprint? There were a few reasons:

1) Being a good neighbor and steward of the park. There were several conflicts for permitting agencies and individuals on the long trail course of past years. There is now an eagle protection area, private property fences, and fire season closures in the National Forest that prevent access to the old course.

2) This new course is accessible to range of age groups and ability levels. This course is fast and fun, and a true test of your speed. It has some steep climbs and fast descents to be fun for advanced riders, but is short enough for youth and beginners to give it a try.

3) If you did a triathlon on Saturday, then this short course gives you the chance to have fun on a shorter course on Sunday.

Explore the trails above and around Fool Hollow Lake on this beautiful and fun off-road course.

SWIM COURSE – 300 meters (CUT OFF TIME 30 minutes after start)

The Super Sprint triathlon swim course is a 1-loop course. Expected water temperature for the race is between 58 & 65 degrees. Wetsuits are highly encouraged.

Between 78 and 84 degrees, wetsuits may be used, but participants will not be eligible for age group awards. Elites and Pros may only wear wetsuits in water temperatures up to and including 68 degrees.

The swim will be an out and back course (see map below). Athletes will begin the race in the water or on the boat ramp depending on the water level on race day.
