SCHEDULE:

Co-ed Sprint & Olympic Triathlon, Duathlon & AquaBike

  • CO-ED SPRINT TRIATHLON:  The Sprint Swim/Bike/Run course is the same as Saturday's events.
  • CO-ED OLYMPIC TRIATHLON:
    • Swim: We will start the 1500m course swimming upstream close to shore against a slow current. At the turnaround, you will be swimming strong and fast with the current back to the finish. Always keep the buoys to your right. Wetsuits are allowed but not required. 
    • 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. 
    • 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.
  • CO-ED SPRINT & OLYMPIC DUATHLON:  1st Run/Walk: Both distances will begin with a 5km flat, out and back run or walk. Same as Sprint Tri Run and Run2. The Sprint Duathlon Bike and Run2 are the exact same as the Sprint Tri (12 mile (11.77 mile) Bike & 5km Run2) The Olympic Duathlon Bike and Run2 are the exact same as the Olympic Tri. (22.8 mile Bike & 10km Run2)
  • CO-ED 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.


Post-Race Celebration:

Enjoy the after-race party with music, food and beverages, awards and prizes, and lots of fun! The energy and fun keeps flowing after the races, making this a party not to miss! Post-race food and beverages will help athletes refuel and Deschutes Brewery Beer will be onsite to help you celebrate your accomplishment! Vendors in the Sports & Fitness Expo will have samples for tasting throughout the events.
