Inaugural Race brings Triathlon back to Lake Sammamish

Raise the Bar Events brings triathlon back to Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah, WA, on July 9 with the Elton Home Team Eastside Tri.

Athletes will swim a single-loop clockwise course of .75 miles from Sunset Beach, exit the water on a railed ramp, through outdoor showers, and into transition. The 22.8 mile near-flat bike course travels clockwise around Lake Sammamish and includes a ride through popular Marymoor Park. The race concludes with a flat 4-mile run on the park trails, boardwalk, and groomed paths inside the Park.

Patty Swedberg, owner of RTB Events, is looking forward to the new race, “Our team and event staff are super excited to take RTB Events outside our normal stomping ground and bring triathlon back to Lake Sammamish. The park has had some incredible renovations and athletes and families are in for a great venue”. They’ll also be in for RTB’s excellence in course production, finish line fun, and prize giveaways. This race recommended for both the novice and seasoned athlete.
