34th Annual Hagg Lake Triathlon and Duathlon to Be Held July 9th, 2016 at Henry Hagg Lake State Park In Gaston, OR

Portland, OR – Hagg Lake is one of the nation’s oldest and longest running triathlon events, It enters its 34th year and continues to draw upwards of 600+ athletes. Its popularity is rooted in rich tradition and the exceptional venue, which is one of the most scenic in the country. The Hagg Lake course offers a true test of this terrific sport with its rolling hills on both the bike and run leg portions of the event. Make the Hagg Lake Triathlon one of your summer stops and compete on the course that has seen many of the greats in the sport of triathlon.


NEW THIS YEAR– Hagg Lake is offering us the opportunity to camp at the park this year. Our mission is to replicate the super fun atmosphere at WildFlower Triathlon in California where athletes camp, hang out, and share race stories by the camp fire at night.

Why Racing Events is proud to support High School sports programs and other non-profit organizations through this event and all the races and fundraisers on the Why Racing Events calendar each year. Some of the High School sports programs rely solely on the donations made via these events. Contributions over the years from these NW races and fundraisers have exceeded $2 million dollars. We are very thankful to the athletes, sponsors, vendors, partners and volunteers who contribute to the success of our events, allowing us to offer this support!
