The Super Man Triathlon is to celebrate the ordinary Heroes of every day life.

The Super Man Triathlon would like ALL athletes to dress as their Favorite Super Hero; whether that be Batman, Spiderman, or your local Fire department Captain or city Police Chief – please come dressed in a Super Hero costume that you feel best pays tribute the Super Men in your life. There will be Awards for the Best and Most Creative costumes. First prize in each category will win FIVE Free Triathlons of their choice with TBF Racing in 2014. Second and third prizes will also be awarded in each category: Best Costume and Most Creative Costume.
