Best in the West Events and the Corvallis Triathlon Club bring you a one of a kind triathlon event that is a fun way to for families, groups of friends, age-groupers, and die-hard athletes alike to enjoy a weekend-long multi-sport relay event. The Triumph Iron Relay covers the distance of a full or half Iron-distance triathlon, however it is broken up over a weekend into a relay. Each leg concludes with a social event at a different venue each day. The swim is at Osborn Aquatic Center in Corvallis, the bike is at Emerson Vineyards in Monmouth, and the run is in Corvallis at Brandis Farms. Free camping is available for racers and their families at Brandis Farms Friday-Monday.
