Description:
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 in the event 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 or pull buoys are allowed but not required. You can even use arm floaties or swim vests if that would make you feel more safe. :)

Bike: The cycle is a 12.5 mile flat ride along country roads. Road or mountain bikes are allowed. Helmets are required.

Run/Walk: The course is a 3 mile flat, out and back run or walk on paved trails.
Duathlon:
1st Run/Walk: You will start with a 2 mile flat, out and back run or walk.

Bike: The cycle is a 12.5 mile flat ride along country roads. Road or mountain bikes are allowed. Helmets are required.

Run/Walk: You will finish with a 3 mile flat, out and back run or walk on paved trails.
Course Information:
This Triathlon is a perfect distance for the novice or veteran triathlete. It's short enough that anyone can finish it. And for those who are more experienced, you can push the pace and work on your speed.
