OKLAHOMA is a word that was coined by the native American missionary Allen Wright. He combined two Choctaw words, "ukla" meaning man and "humá" meaning red to form the word that first appears in an 1866 Choctaw treaty.

Oklahoma means REDMAN and REDMAN means a challenging swim, a "rolling hills" yet fast bike course, and a closed, flat run course, combined with service and support that will exceed the expectations of the seasoned Full distance or the newbie Half distance triathlete alike.

Join us for the 13th Annual REDMAN Triathlon in Oklahoma City as we host the USAT Ultra Distance Triathlon National Championships on SEPTEMBER 16th, 2017.


The 2015 event has been designated as the USAT Long Course National Championships and is the only event acting as the qualifier for the 2016 ITU Long Distance (O3 Distance) World Championships!!!
