"Men's Health" Magazine, an internationally renown publication named Bend's Leadman Triathlon one of the top 20 triathlons in America.

 

Visit Bend's Doug La Placa says it came as a surprise when they were notified.  "Yeah, we were surprised. We didn't expect a first year event to gain that kind of recognition so quickly. We think it's a great sign and we have some things that we're looking forward to; improving for year 2 and beyond with the Leadman Triathlon. So yeah, this is a nice feather in the cap for the event, that's for sure."

La Placa says the notoriety will surely help boost tourism to the area.
