Dear Copperman Participants and Supporters:

After 26 Years, the Copperman Triathlon is being retired.

Copperman has always been fortunate to have a core group of athletes and supporters. However, over the past 5 years, overall participation has been inconsistent and the race has experienced a decline from its peak in 2011.
We have seen a surge of popularity in many other outdoor activities and events – from mountain biking to kayaking to obstacle courses, mud runs and more. We respect and applaud the many choices that our Copperman Triathletes now have to grow their passions for healthy activities and events.

Some of our dedicated triathletes may be interested in other triathlons to continue their passion for the sport. Here are a few options to consider:

UP Northwoods Triathlon
June 30 2018
Iron Mountain, MI

Run, Paddle, Row
June 15-16 2018
Munising, MI

Aurora BayCare Triathlon
June 3 2018
Green Bay, WI

Door County Triathlon
July 14-15 2018
Door County, WI

We encourage you to continue your active passions outdoors and support a healthy community. If you have any questions or comments, please send your email to I am glad to exchange information about other events and activities that you might be interested in.

Thank you for your support of Copperman. We will always be proud of our excellent experience together and of the 26 great years of the Copperman Triathlon.

Best wishes for your healthy lifestyle.
