The last weekend in July in the Northwest means great weather, warm water temperatures and great mid-summer racing action. This year’s Wahine All Women’s Triathlon & Duathlon will be held on Saturday, July 28 at Blue Lake Park in Fairview, OR. The following day, the venue will host the (coed) Amica Mid-Summer Triathlon & Duathlon.
Both days will offer a sports and fitness expo, live music, brunch, prizes, and a Kid’s Splash, Pedal-n-Dash on Saturday with the All Women’s event – one of Portland’s only youth triathlons.
The Wahine All Women’s Triathlon & Duathlon is Hawaiian themed this year. The event features Reggae music, live drummers & Polynesian show, and Hawaiian food and drinks!
If you want the real Hawaiian experience, you are in luck. Both events this weekend are eligible for the Muscle Milk® Race to Kona! Win a trip for two to Kona, Hawaii to watch the Ironman® World Championship. Entry into the Muscle Milk Race to Kona contest is based solely on a participant’s entry into any AA Sports Multi-Sport race. Each entry gives the athlete one chance to win.
