Historical Note

The first Muncie Endurathon was held at the Prairie Creek Reservoir in 1980. Fifty triathletes participated in the first race, and the average number of participants has grown to 600-700, peaking in 2001 with 1200 registered participants. By 2009, the Endurathon was listed as the second oldest traithlon--just behind the Hawaii Ironman. In 2011, the Muncie Endurathon became the Ironman Muncie 70.3, and continues to hold the event at the Prairie Creek Reservoir.

The race includes swimming for 1.2 miles, biking for 46 miles, and finishing with a 13 mile run.
