The Islander Aquathon will be hosting the 2012 USAT Aquathon National Championship!  Come and claim your title as the best aquathlete in the country.  There are two distances available: the National Championship distance: 1.5k swim/10k run, as well as a 0.5k swim/5k run, OR go for the run-only option, 5k or 10k distance.  Lots of choices for everyone. 

Course Information:

Swim is one loop in Lake Washington and run is a two or four loop (depending upon distance selected) run entirely inside Luther Burbank Park.  Run course has plenty of short hills and fun turns on a variety of surfaces with beautiful views of the park and Lake Washington. 

Other Info:

The Islander Aquathlon has been selected to be the USA Triathlon Aquathlon National Championships for 2012!  We're very excited to be hosting the championships and giving athletes the opportunity to qualify for the Aquathlon World Championships.  

The National Championship race is the long course event (1500m swim, 10k run).  The swim/run format was adopted this year in favor of the run/swim/run format as water temperatures in Seattle typically do not meet the criteria for a non-wetsuit swim.  The distance of a 1500m swim and 10k run, while different from the World Championship distance of 1000m swim and 10k run, was selected to follow precedent for the Aquathlon National Championship distance.
