ABOUT THE EVENT:

This weekend festival offers an Olympic and Sprint Distance Triathlon, Duathlon & AquaBike, and a Super Sprint course that offers shorter distances for those new to the sport or just going for pure, raw speed. The Super Sprint is also a great event for our Junior Triathletes! All Events include individual and Relay/Team Competition (with the exception of Kid's Tri)

Recognized by NW triathletes as the “must do” event to open the triathlon season, the Blue Lake Triathlon encompasses two full days of racing (Super Sprint & Kids races on Saturday & Sprint & Olympic races on Sunday). This two-day, fun-filled weekend also includes the Sports & Fitness Expo and the Olympic distance event includes the NW Club/Team Challenge. Triathlon Clubs from across the NW gather at Blue Lake Park to compete for boasting rights as the top club of multisport athletes in the region.

The bike courses of these races are flat and fast, with the majority occurring on a section of Marine Dr that is closed to all but local traffic. This makes the course one of the safest and fastest in the region.

New & Junior Triathletes

The Super Sprint novice race is designed for the first time triathlete, those new to the sport, our Junior Triathletes or those who can't race on Sunday and/or are looking for raw speed! The swim is a shorter, more manageable 1/4 mile distance, (instead of the standard 1/2-mile Sprint distance swim), 10 mile bike ride (vs 12 miles and it's a 2 loop course making it very spectator friendly!) and a flat 2 mile run (vs 3 mile sprint course).
