Sprint Tri & Du

Sprint Triathlon

The Issaquah sprint-distance triathlon is a fun race.  It’s perfect for experienced triathletes looking to kick off the tri season yet short enough for novices who are just starting to get their feet wet in the tri circuit. This sprint-distance event takes place along the pristine and scenic shores of Lake Sammamish. Swim in the clean water, bike along the edge, and enjoy the beautiful, flat terrain within the State Park for the cross-country style run.

The Course:

  • Swim: 1/4 mile, off Sunset Beach in Lake Sammamish (expected temp = 61*)
  • Bike: 14 mile out and back course, mostly flat with one small hill at about the 4 and 9 mile marks
  • Run: 3.1 mile, “cross-country” style on flat trails with various surfaces

 Sprint Duathlon

This was a new event in 2009 and it was a huge success. We decided to do a du event because everyone likes to ride and run but some folks just don’t care to swim, especially in “cooler” water. If that describes you, please consider signing up for the duathlon and you can experience the thrill and enjoyment of our main event without being cold and wet.

The Course:

  • Bike: 14 mile out and back course, mostly flat with one small hill at about the 4 and 9 mile marks
  • Run: 3.1 mile, “cross-country” style on flat trails with various surfaces
Adult sprint Tri & Du scheduled to begin at 7:00am and 7:15am, respectively.
