The Issaquah sprint-distance triathlon is a fun race, perfect for experienced triathletes looking to kick off the season, and short enough for novices who are just starting to get their feet wet on the tri circuit. This sprint-distance event takes place along the pristine and scenic shores of Lake Sammamish. Swim in the clean water, bike along the edge, and enjoy the beautiful, flat terrain within the State Park for the cross-country style run.
Triathlon Course Information:
Swim: 14 mile, off Tibbetts Beach in Lake Sammamish (expected temp = 61)
Bike: 15 mile out-n-back course, mostly flat with one small hill at about the 4 and 9 mile marks.
Run: 3 mile, "cross-country" style on flat trails with various surfaces.
Lake Sammamish State Park is a beautiful location for all kinds of outdoor activities. If you're not already a regular visitor to the Park, we think your "tour" of the Park via the Traithlon and Run courses will have you coming back for more.
