Ten Triathlons Worth Training For

Here are 10 of the coolest, most challenging triathlons in the United States. Trust us: They’re fully worth the blood, sweat, and tears.

Louisville, KY – August

A rolling swim in the Ohio River marks the start of this Ironman race, which ventures out into the undulating hills and pastures of the Bluegrass State’s lush countryside. The 26.2-mile run covers flat terrain—another prime PR course—that passes Churchill Downs and ends at Louisville’s iconic 4th Street Live. And if the nearby Bourbon Trail isn’t an incentive to cross the finish line, nothing is.
