About the Race
Bringing the DECA to the US has been a personal passion for the last 5 years of Wayne Kurtz and Steve Kirby. Through all the hurdles and challenges, we are excited to host all of our ultra triathlete global family to New Orleans for the races. Our goal is to make this a safe and thoroughly enjoyable experience for the athlete, crews and spectators. Well maybe it won’t be all enjoyable for the athletes as they grind through day after day during the run!
