Creating Lists - 5 Races I Want to Do

Having a couple days down following getting some teeth yanked. Using today to create some list's, starting with 5 races I want to try ans do before 2020.
  • Challenge Roth
  • Norseman
  • Wildflower
  • St Croix 70.3
  • Escape from Alcatraz

List is in no particular order and had a few other options that were on the list but thought I would wittle it down to a core 5. The other's I considered were;

Embrunman, Coast to Coast Adventue Race, Noosa Triahtlon,  Laguna Phuket Triahtlon,  Alpe D Huez Triathlon

Note have already had the privilege of racing at Kona and hope to go back as well, so this list was races specifically that I have not done (Otherwise Ironman Canada would be on the list as well)

Any ideas on races that I have missed from my top 5?


  1. Great Post! Here's my list (in no particular order):
    1. Ironman Hawaii (obviously...)
    2.Ironman Lake Placid
    3. Reykjavík Marathon
    4. Yukon Marathon (ie "The Sun never Sets!"
    5. Fat Dog 100 Ultra (someday...)

  2. Escape from alcatraz is definitely on my list. Way before I even considered doing a tri I used to watch the special they aired on nbc after the race and was fascinated by it. Little did know..
