Long course (international) or Short course (sprint) are available in this event.
Take your choice of the Sprint (short) or Olympic (long) distance in Satsop.
The Sprint takes you out on a 500M out and back swim in a man made lake that often holds temperatures in the high 60s, then onto a loop along the Satsop River, turning up to the defunct Satsop Nuclear Towers followed by a 3.1 mile run along the Satsop River once again.
With the Olympic distance, finish three loops of the swim, then transition to your bike for a 25 mile loop beyond the Towers. The ride has one hill about ¾ mile long and about 5% grade, the rest of the ride is flat and fast, on good roads. Youll finish with a 6.2 mile run along the river.
