Entertainment & Post Race Activities


For all the athletes who came out for the Hagg Lake Tri/Du event, here’s a little swim-bike-run down memory lane – Hagg Lake Video. And for everyone else – maybe we’ll see you next year?!

Important Update: We were informed earlier this week that the Park Usage Fee is structured differently now and going forward for any large events at Henry Hagg Lake Park. A Park Usage Fee will be assessed for every participant at this event. We apologize for this very late notice. AA Sports will need to collect a $6 portion of this Park Usage fee at Packet Pickup/Registration and the athlete will be given a Park Usage Pass to be left on their vehicle dashboard during the event. AA Sports will pay the collected fees along with the remaining 60% of the assessed fee to Henry Hagg Lake Park. Because of this Park Usage Fee, Hagg Lake Tri/Du participants should NOT purchase a parking pass when arriving at Henry Hagg Lake Park. Athletes should drive straight to Boat Ramp C.



Live Entertainment by Shwing Daddies, Awards Ceremony, Deschutes Brewery Beer, and tasty food from Franz Bakery, KIND Snacks and more!

Shwing Daddies will keep the energy flowing for the after-race party. They are as exciting to watch, as they are to hear. The group’s members trade the role of lead vocalist seamlessly and achieve exceptional three-part harmonies as they roll out song after song of favorites from the ’60s to present! 

About the Event


Open to all levels of ability, the Hagg Lake Triathon – is Rich in Beauty and Rich in Tradition!
The modern sport of triathlon had its modest beginnings with an event held in Mission Bay in San Diego, CA on September 25, 1974. There were 46 athletes that day. Seven years later Hagg Lake Triathlon became one of six stops on the Bud Light Triathlon Series Tour drawing about 500 athletes with Dave Scott coming out on top. Today, as one of the nation’s oldest and longest running triathlon events, Hagg Lake enters its 33rd running and continues to draw upwards of 600+ athletes. Its popularity is rooted in this rich tradition and the exceptional venue, which is one of the most scenic in the country, also offers a true test of this terrific sport with its rolling hills on both the bike and run leg portions of the event. Make the Hagg Lake Triathlon one of your summer stops and compete on the course that has seen many of the greats in the sport of triathlon.

Olympic Distance Triathlon:
The Hagg Lake course is famous for its race history, scenic beauty, and challenge. The swim is a two counter clockwise laps, 1500 meter triangular with water temperatures in the mid 70’s. The bike course is challenging with rolling hills. Cyclists will complete two counter-clockwise loops around the lake. Both loops will include a two mile out and back section on Scoggins Valley Road. The 10K mile run is also scenic and challenging, with an out and back course clockwise along the lake side road.

Sprint Distance Triathlon:
The Sprint course is basically a shortened version of the Olympic distance, which will include a 1/2-mile swim, one complete loop (including one out-and-back on Scoggins Valley Road) on the bike, and a 5k run.

Olympic Distance Duathlon:
Duathlon participants will begin with a 5k run. The 40K bike portion consists of two counter-clockwise loops around the lake. Each loop will include the two mile out and back section that the triathletes will also cover. The final 5K run will take place on the same course as the first leg of the duathlon. (This event is a TRI NorthWest ranked Olympic Distance Duathlon)

Aid Stations:

Archived Results


Will be presented to the Overall Male & Female champions and Overall Masters Male & Female champions (Overall Male & Female, and Masters Male & Female will be removed from the individual age division awards). Awards will also be presented to the 1st thru 3rd place finishers in each individual age division, as well as the Open & Masters Clydesdale and Athena divisions. The 1st and 2nd place teams in each relay division will also receive awards.

Individuals: 12 years & under, 13-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 & over. Clydesdale’s (men 198 lbs & over) and Athena’s (women 150 lbs & over) in Open (39 & under) and Masters (40 & over) divisions.

Triathlon Relay Teams: (combined 3 ages) 105 & under and 106 & over in Men’s, Women’s and Mixed divisions. No mountain bike divisions in Triathlon.

Friends and Family Division: A non-competitive division created for the sole purpose of allowing participants of different ages and genders to swim in the same wave. For example, this allows fathers/daughters, mothers/sons, husband /wives, boyfriends/girlfriends, siblings, etc. to enjoy the triathlon together and to help one another through the swim leg of the event. When participants fail to swim in their correct wave, as determined by age & gender in most all triathlons, their split times and finish time are compromised. So, if you choose to participate out of your wave choose this division to uphold the integrity of your results and the overall results of the event.

Duathlon Relay Teams (combined 2 ages): 0-70, 71-90 & 91+ in men’s, women’s, and mixed divisions (no mountain bike divisions for teams).

NOTE: Awards Ceremony will commence at the conclusion of the event and winners must pick up their awards. Awards will not be mailed.
