Pro Field List below.

Now entering its 27th year as one of the largest and most competitive Olympic-distance triathlons in the United States, St. Anthony’s Triathlon is once again preparing to host some of the world’s strongest and most elite professional athletes. More than 4,000 individuals and 150 relay teams from 46 states, 18 countries, and six U.S. territories are expected to compete. The race, sponsored and produced by St. Anthony’s Hospital, takes place Sunday, April 25.

“In the last 27 years, St. Anthony’s Triathlon has seen tremendous growth,” said St. Anthony’s Hospital President, William G. Ulbricht. “From its humble beginnings in 1984 with only 600 athletes, St. Anthony’s Triathlon now has a reputation as one of the premier multisport events in the world. The race has become an integral part of our community, bringing in thousands of spectators, participants and volunteers for a weekend focused on fitness and fun. And like the Triathlon, St. Anthony’s Hospital also has a reputation in the community for what we do best – providing quality, compassionate care for more than 79 years.”

Some of the athletes who will headline the 2010 St. Anthony’s Triathlon in the men’s and women’s professional fields are reigning Ironman World Champion, Craig Alexander; 2009 Ford Ironman World Championship runner-up, Mirinda Carfrae; and former St. Anthony’s Triathlon Champions, Greg Bennett, Matt Reed, Laura Bennett, Sarah Haskins, and returning 2009 champion, Rebeccah Wassner.
