Saturday Events:
Girlfriends Tri Sprint 1/2 Mile Swim: A fast, down current swim in the Columbia River! Novice swimmers can feel comfortable knowing the edge is just a few feet away if they get tired. The only rule is you can't advance forward if you're touching the sand. So if you must take a break, you must stay where you are until you are ready to resume swimming. Any swim stroke is acceptable including front crawl, back crawl, side-stroke, back float and doggie paddle. :) Athletes will walk from the swim exit to the swim start 1/2 mile upstream. Consider it a great warm-up! Wetsuits are allowed but not required. You can even use arm floaties or swim vests if that would make you feel more safe. :) www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=554358
Girlfriends Sprint Tri Bike: The cycle is a 12 mile (11.77 miles) flat ride along country roads. Road or mountain bikes are allowed. Helmets are required. http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1194970360

Girlfriends Sprint AquaBike: You will start in the AquaBike wave, then complete the bike route. Rack your bike and then make your way through the finish line so we can reward you with your finisher's medal.

Wetsuits are allowed but not required. www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=554355
Olympic Bike: The cycle is a 22.8 mile flat double loop course along quiet, country roads. Road or mountain bikes are allowed. Helmets are required. *Note the course is shorter than the traditional 24.8 mile Olympic Bike course to maximize safety for athletes and due to road closures at the northern end of Lower River Road. http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1195079011
Olympic Run/Walk: The course is a scenic 6.2 mile flat, out and back run or walk on paved trails out to Vancouver Lake and back.

(22.8 mile Bike & 10km Run2)
Sprint & Olympic AquaBike: You will start in the AquaBike wave and complete the 1/2 mile or 1500m swim, then complete the specific bike route (12 miles (11.77 miles or 22.8 miles). Then rack your bike and make your way through the finish line so we can reward you with your finisher's medal. This is a perfect event for those who are not runners (and don't want to walk the Tri) and/or those who are recovering from a running injury.

REFUNDS/TRANSFERS/DEFERS: There are no refunds issued for your registration, however, we do offer the opportunity to transfer your registration to next year's event or to transfer your registration to another participant. This transfer must happen at least 1 month before the event. After that it gets too crazy and we will be unable to process any transfers. Sorry, you'll be out of luck at that point! Most events don't allow transfers or refunds at all so this is a courtesy we offer to our participants. But please don't ask us to extend it within that one month before the event. If you knew how crazy it gets that final month, you would understand the need for us to stay firm to the one month time-line.
