OKLAHOMA is a word that was coined by the native American missionary Allen Wright. He combined two Choctaw words, "ukla" meaning man and "humá" meaning red to form the word that first appears in an 1866 Choctaw treaty.
Oklahoma means REDMAN and REDMAN means a flat, very fast course and ease of access, all combined with service and support that will exceed the expectations of the iron distance triathlete.
TRIATHLON is the fastest growing sport in the United States today, and the FULL DISTANCE race is the pinnacle of achievement for a triathlete. REDMAN will enhance your potential for a personal best.
Join us for the 5th Annual REDMAN Triathlon in Oklahoma City on SEPTEMBER 19 & 20, 2009 as we celebrate the spectacular accomplishments of the athletes participating in the 2009 USAT/Halfmax Long Course National Championships on Saturday and the USAT Club National Championships on Sunday.
