The History of Leon's Triathlon

Leon's Triathlon was founded in 1983 by Leon Wolek. The first Leon's Triathlons were held in Leon's hometown of Hobart, IN. Over the years the triathlon outgrew it's original location and was invited to move to the Wolf Lake Park location in Hammond, IN, by Mayor McDermott. With the tremendous support of the cities, counties and state, Leon's Triathlon has set the standard in the sport. Leon's Triathlon pioneered the first National Amateur Championship, which to this day continues in the sport and is governed by the USA Triathlon Federation. Leon's also hosted one of the First Military Championships in the sport in 1996. Both were televised on ESPN worldwide.
