Welcome to the 39th Anniversary of the Buster Britton Memorial Triathlon


As one of the longest-running triathlons in the country, set in beautiful Oak Mountain State Park, the race honors the life of Buster Britton - one of the Birmingham area's original triathletes that lost his life in a fun run after completing the Hawaii Ironman only a short time earlier. Buster was a true inspiration for triathletes as the sport began to take shape in Alabama.
