This come-back race is growing like crazy! A perfect race for first timers and seasoned triathletes. This sprint distance tri consists of a 350 meter straight-shot swim, followed by a 12.2 mile bike ride on paved roads, ending with a 2.92 mile run around the historic Medical Lake Trail. The race is a mass start with a single transition area, perfect for spectators. Water aid stations will be located at transition, every 1-1.5 miles on the run, and at the finish line. Participants are responsible to provide their own nutrition and are responsible for knowing the course. Plenty of food and fun family activities happening all day.

Just wanted to say thanks for a fun event. Despite the weather, two of my sons and I had a great time. Really impressed with how well organized the event was, even though it was small. Hoping it grows in the coming years, we plan to return next year, and we’ll spread the word in our area (we live up in Boundary County, ID). In particular, I hope you’ll send our thanks to all the folks in kayaks watching over those of us who haven’t nailed the swim thing yet 🙂 That really gave us a lot of comfort and confidence to just get in the water and go for it. And please thank the folks who stood out in that miserable rain on the bike course to make sure we didn’t go off track. Looking forward to next year. These events wouldn’t exist without the volunteers who make them happen. We’re SO appreciative. Thanks so much!
— Luke Merrill (and sons Austin & Josiah)
