The 38th Annual PDX Triathlon Festival held June 1 and 2 at Blue Lake park kicks off the summer racing season for Why Racing Events. The weekend festival offers an Olympic and sprint distance triathlon, duathlon and aquabike. WHY Racing also hosts its Super Sprint / My 1st Tri course featuring shorter distances. This shorter distance is designed for the first time triathlete, youth triathletes, or those looking to race fast. The course offers a more manageable .25-mile swim, 10-mile bike ride on a two loop course making it spectator friendly, and a flat 2-mile run. All courses promise to be scenic, flat and fast. The event encompasses two full days of racing with the Super Sprint and kids races on Saturday and the sprint and Olympic races on Sunday.

A maximum of 1,000 athletes per day can race so be sure to register early as this event fills fast. Enjoy the after-race party with music, food, awards, beverages and brews supplied by Deschutes Brewery.
