4 May 2020: Due to ongoing health concerns and extended shelter-in-place orders, we are heartbroken to announce the in-person race scheduled for Sunday, June 7, 2020 is cancelled. While we hoped for a miracle, we recognize the need for continued safety measures and can’t possibly divert resources from the City of Hammond and our incredible partner agencies. Unfortunately, we are unable to reschedule the event to a later summer or fall date. We’ll let you know if conditions change or the possibility of a future event becomes a reality. All individuals currently registered for the 2020 event will be automatically deferred to the 2021 event, scheduled for Sunday, June 6, 2021. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us as leonstriathlon@aol.com.  ***

We may be bummed about canceling the race, but we’re not giving up. Please join us for a unique Virtual Duathlon & Fun Run – seriously inspired by Leon’s Mom and supporting our Dare2tri colleagues!

Leon’s Triathlon 2020 Military Reunion Race

In 1995, Leon’s Triathlon served as the qualifier for the first ever Military World Games in Rome, Italy, which were held to commemorate the end of WWII and the birth of The United Nations. Over 7,000 athletes from 100 countries competed in 17 different events that were second in status only to the Olympic Games.

On June 7th, 2020, Leon’s will host a reunion race to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of this historic event.

Active duty, retired, and veterans should follow the Leon’s Triathlon Military Reunion group page and be on the lookout for special discounts on race registration, hotel accommodations, and racing kits and/or gear. The group page will be used as a way to provide information on the event, photos of previous years races and an easy way for participants to collaborate with others, meet or reacquaint with former athletes as well as comment on training leading up to race day.
