American Triple-T and TOUGHMAN Ohio on-site lodging GOING FAST!

The response to the new venue and lodging for the 2019 American Triple-T and TOUGHMAN Ohio has been very strong with the on-site cabins and lodge rooms are going very fast.


This massive pine beam and stone lodge captures the atmosphere and flavor of the grand park lodges built at the turn of the century.

Salt Fork Lodge is perfect for bringing the family or the spouse along to the race. Let them sleep in and then it’s just a quick walk to the main staging area to catch you crossing the finish line.

Salt Fork Lodge features 53 two-bedroom cabins conveniently located next to all the action. These cabins sleep up to 6, have two bedrooms, bathroom, full kitchen with dining area, living room and screened in porch for all your bikes and gear which makes a cabin perfect for teams traveling together.

Whether you’re doing your pre-race routine or recovering from a hard effort, these stress-free environments are peaceful, private, and close to everything.

For the GUARANTEED LOWEST RATES please call 740-435-9000 and mention the “HFP Racing” block.



What IS the American Triple-T? Well, it’s everything you’ve heard it to be, and more. The event is so much more than your typical “triathlon weekend” — it’s a triathlon achievement of epic proportions for all who partake. It is 3 consecutive days of racing, gelling together 4 races covering a total of more than 70 or 140 miles for the weekend. You will find yourself swimming in chilly Salt Fork Lake, riding the challenging hills of Guerney County, and finishing with a demanding run on the trail systems climbing and descending those same hillsides.

The American Triple-T is not for the weak or faint of spirit. It has humbled many triathletes who didn’t take it seriously, and it validates a host of others who test their “tri-mettle” at the “T” every year. Athletes from all 50 states, and 4 continents have all sought the privilege of earning their American Triple-T finisher T-shirt. Competitors, volunteers and spectators all come away with a new appreciation of the sport and of the athletes who train and tame mind and body to complete this legendary event.

You’ll also come away with newfound friendships, and you’ll solidify those bonds every year you come together to face this demon. There are even a special few who turned their initial shared experiences at the American Triple-T into a union of souls, and they came back the next year to compete as husband and wife! While we cannot guarantee that you’ll find your soul mate at the “T”, we will guarantee an incredible, unforgettable experience unique in the triathlon world.

So please, take your time, peruse the website, and check out all the unique aspects of this amazing weekend event, then reach deep down and find the courage to sign up and join us at the 2019 American Triple-T on May 31-June 2.
