The Vashon Island Clean-and-Dirty Multi-Sport Festival Weekend is on Saturday and Sunday, July 5th and 6th, 2014. The weekend will have something for everyone!
Saturday 7/5: Heart of the Sound Triathlon - sprint road triathlon and Open Water Swim
Sunday 7/6: XTERRA Vashon Off-Road Triathlon, Trail Run
The events will be held at King County's Dockton Park on Maury Island, which is located at: 25998 Dockton Rd. SW, Vashon, WA 98070. The triathlons are sanctioned by USA Triathlon, the governing body for triathlons in the United States. All racers must be members or purchase a one-day license.
The swims for both triathlons will take place on a route in protected Quartermaster Harbor, a half mile salt-water swim where most (but not all) wear wetsuits. The length is accurately measured. The course will be triangular, and be clockwise or counter-clockwise in order to deal with the tide.
The mountain bike leg will be three loops on the dirt trails of Dockton Park; the road tri leg on Sunday is a lollipop tour of Maury Island and Vashon Island, 12.5 miles of rolling country roads.
