This year’s Blue Lake Triathlon & Duathlon is in the books and the 2012 Northwest triathlon season is officially under way. Seven different events were held over the weekend with Saturday, June 9 playing host to the sprint distance events and Sunday attracting athletes competing in the Olympic distances races.
In addition to individual competition, the Blue Lake Olympic Triathlon doubled as the 2012 TRI NorthWest Club/Team Championship. Coming out on top was the Willamette Valley Tri Club. The Portland Triathlon Club placed second with VO2 Multisport in third position. Points are awarded for both participation and also for age group placing. Although the WVTC fielded less participants than their Portland rivals, their age group performances gave them the advantage to take this year’s title.
