Welcome to Peasantman™ Steel Distance Triathlons
Year 3 of the annual Peasantman™ Steel Distance Triathlon will be held on August 16, 2015 at Indian Pines Park in Penn Yan, New York. This medieval-themed triathlon is centrally located between Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Binghamton, providing beautiful scenery to enhance the racing experience ~ right in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. Choose from the Full (144.6 miles), the Half (72.3), the Half Relay, the Half or Full Aqua Bike, or the Intermediate (Steel Olympic - 36.6).
What is a 'Steel Distance' Triathlon?
Our own 'Steel Distance' is an officially sanctioned USA Triathlon event. And because steel is stronger than... ummm... other metals, our distance is just slightly longer than a traditional ultra-distance triathlon. But that's okay, because Peasants are stronger, and Peasants are out to prove their superiority. As illustrated to the right, you'll see that the extra distance is on the bike course, but the swim and run haven't changed. Oh yeah... Peasants have an extra half hour to finish. No longer will you be closed out at the stroke of midnight. Peasants have until 12:30am! Spectators are encouraged to dress as medieval Peasants.  
Charity Included!
As a racer, your online registration will ask you to choose from a list of charities toward which to donate a portion of your race fee. It's not an added cost... it is simply a part of the race fee that will be redirected. The charities include the Humane Society of Yates County, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Camp Good Days, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, American Heart Association, and the American Cancer Society. Feel free to raise money during the race for other charities that you may be affiliated with!
Additional Beneficiaries:
We believe in giving back to the communities that support us. Here are two that benefit immediately from your support on race weekend.
  Milly's Pantry is a Penn Yan-based organization run entirely by volunteers distributing food locally to those in need. So bring at least one non-perishable food item for donation on race weekend. You can drop it off with the volunteers at the race packet pickup area.
  R Community Bikes is a grassroots 501(c)3 organization that collects and repairs used bicycles for distribution, free of charge, to Rochester, NY's most needy children and adults. If you have an old bike no longer in use (in any condition), please bring it on race weekend for donation. Just leave it with volunteers at the race packet pickup area or at the R Community Bikes booth at the expo.
