Deuces Wild Crew making it happen!

Our Approach

Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival was started in 2004 by Debbie and Seton Claggett as a way to give back to triathletes around the world. The race has grown to encompass an entire endurance weekend that has something for the entire family. Come see why Outside Magazine and Triathlete Magazine both selected the Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival as one of the best triathlon festivals in the entire United States!

Mountain Man Events is excited to work with Debbie and Seton to transition and continue the legacy of Deuces Wild. We are a small family triathlon company, consisting of two couples: Brian and Rachel Buzzard and Sean and Rebekah Ryan. We are all from Flagstaff, AZ and we share a passion of providing great triathlon experiences for triathletes in Northern Arizona. We are all triathletes, and are USAT sanctioned and trained race directors and coaches who love to get out there on race courses with our families as well.

Our Crew

We have a dedicated crew of people who are just like you - teachers, doctors, nurses, students and business professionals - who donate a substantial amount of time to make this race happen.  Our crew is motivated every year to make your race experience exciting and memorable.
