PDX Triathlon Festival
Sat June 4 - Sun June 5
Join us for the PDX Triathlon Festival at Blue Lake Regional Park and kick off the summer racing season. The fun begins on Saturday with our FREE KIDS TRI followed by our Sunset 5k. On Sunday athletes compete on our scenic, flat and fast course in either the Super Sprint/My 1st Tri, Sprint or Olympic Distances. NEW: Paddle Triathlon for those of you who would rather kayak or paddle-board! Relay options are great for friends, family & co-workers!
The Annual PDX/Blue Lake Triathlon was started by the Portland Triathlon Association and Frank Goulard, who is still an active, local Masters Triathlete. He participates in many of our events so come on out and meet the legend, the man who started it all for us here locally!
This weekend festival offers an Olympic and Sprint Distance Triathlon, Duathlon & AquaBike, and a Super Sprint / My 1st Tri course that offers shorter distances for those new to the sport or just going for pure, raw speed. The Super Sprint is also a great event for our Junior Triathletes!
Recognized by NW triathletes as the “must do” event to open the triathlon season, the PDX Triathlon encompasses two full days of racing (Kids races & Sunset 5k on Saturday & Super Sprint, Sprint & Olympic races on Sunday) including a Sports & Fitness Expo. Triathlon Clubs from across the NW gather to launch the MultiSport season.
The bike courses are flat and fast, with the majority occurring on a section of Marine Dr that is closed to all but local traffic. This makes the course one of the safest and fastest in the region.
