Leon’s Triathlon 2021 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 6, 2021, Leon’s will host a reunion race to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of this historic event (making-up for the cancelled 2020 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.

Leon’s Mom says “Thank You!”
