Welcome to the 18th annual EnduraFit Ironman 70.3 EagleMan Triathlon, one of the most popular Ironman 70.3 triathlons in the country, showcasing superb logistics and the best volunteers around. Once again, this “staple” race is a qualifier for both the 2014 Ironman World Championship in Kona on October 11, 2104 (30 slots), and the 2014 Ironman Championship 70.3 in Mont-Tremblant, Québec, Canada on September 7, 2014 (40 slots).
This year’s race promises to be another great, world-class event, packed full of a stellar field of Pros from around the world and loads of excitement.
Each year, the Ironman 70.3 draws the top pros in the world. In 2013 Andy Potts of Colorado Springs, CO, won the men’s division with a time of 3:47:36. Potts was first out of the water in 23:43, and remained among the top three competitors throughout the bike and run, finishing overall 1:15 ahead of second place finisher James Cunnama of South Africa. 31-year-old Angela Naeth of Canada won the women’s division with a time of 4:14:06, more than three minutes before second place finisher Laura Bennett of Boulder, CO, who led the pack coming out of the swim.
In 2012, and three-time Ironman World Champion, Craig “Crowie” Alexander won the men’s division with a time of 3:44:57, overtaking the 2011 Ironman 70.3 EagleMan Champion T.J. Tollakson, who finished in 3rd place behind Greg Bennett. 34-year-old Meredith Kessler of San Francisco competed at EagleMan for the first time, and finished the Womens Champion with a time of 4:12:40, defeating the 2011 defending Champion, Mirinda Carfrae, who dropped out of the race during the bike due to an illness.
After clinching the 2013 title, Andy Potts commented, "What makes EagleMan unique is the city of Cambridge. The race has a great history, and true champions in the sport of triathlon have raced here and raced well here. If you are looking for a triathlon, come to EagleMan for its first-class race experience.”
“This was my first visit to the City of Cambridge for EagleMan and I definitely plan to be back next year to defend my 2012 title,” said Kessler. “The course was challenging, but the volunteers and this city are first class.”
“The EagleMan course was everything I heard it would be…tough,” said Crowie. “The challenging part of a flat course is having to pedal and run at full strength the entire time without being able to coast. Overall, I had a good performance and am glad that I could be part of such a classy race this year.”
This is a true test of both your physical and mental toughness. Please do not consider entry unless you have properly prepared and trained for this challenging event. The conditions are both demanding and challenging; heat, winds, choppy river, and no shade… strikingly similar to the Ford Ironman Championship in Kona, so please train accordingly.

I did my first triathlon in 1982, and I’ve done maybe over 100 races since then including Hawaii in 95, but I will remember this year’s EagleMan as the most special of all because of what you and your team did for me.
