TULSA, Okla. — Calling all athletes! The 2021 Certified Piedmontese IRONMAN North American Championship Tulsa triathlon is being held on Sunday, May 23, 2021.
This year's triathlon is moving forward after the 2020 Certified Piedmontese IRONMAN Tulsa had to be canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
