The 39th Annual PDX Triathlon Festival takes place May 30-31, 2020 at Blue Lake park.
The Annual PDX/Blue Lake Triathlon was started by the Portland Triathlon Association and Frank Goulard, who is still an active, local Masters Triathlete. The 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.
Recognized by NW triathletes as the “must do” event to open the triathlon season, the Blue Lake Triathlon encompasses two full days of racing (Super Sprint & Kids races on Saturday & 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 Drive that is closed to all but local traffic.
