XTERRA Deuces Wild One of Best Triathlons on Earth

May. 25, 2017

XTERRA Deuces Wild will take place on June 3rd on a very special course designed in 2004 with the help of the first-ever XTERRA World Champ, Jimmy Riccitello.

“Over the years we have seen thousands of racers compete on this iconic course,” said race director Seton Claggett. “At 6,300-feet and nestled in the pinion and juniper pine trees in the White Mountains of Arizona, this course has fantastic views and great weather.”

XTERRA Deuces Wild features an 800-meter swim, a 24K mountain bike, and an 8K run.

“The race is held at Fool Hollow Lake in the city of Show Low, Arizona,” said Claggett.  “The bike course has a varying mix of single track, jeep trail, and fire road with hard pack, patches of sand, and rocks.  The bike ride is moderately challenging and offers terrain for every rider level.

“The run is an out-back that features a monstrous climb called The Eliminator and has a few surprises toward the end that we throw in every year that the racers love.”

XTERRA Deuces Wild is part of the Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival, which also includes the Deuceman Long Course Triathlon, an Olympic Distance Triathlon, and a Youth Triathlon. The festival was included as one of the top-five triathlon festivals by Triathlete Magazine as part of their “100 Best Races” feature in 2010. It was also included in the top six “Outside-Endorsed Races” by Outside Magazine in 2014.
