Description: Yes, you CAN cross the finish line! 

 This Triathlon is a perfect distance for the novice or veteran triathlete. It's short enough that anyone can finish it. And for those who are more experienced, you can push the pace and work on your speed.

The Girlfriends & Dudes Triathlon, Duathlon and Kids Tri is a great course for spectators to watch the swim, transition, run and the finish from the park. There's a playground and beach for the kids, and volleyball nets for fun after-event activities so bring the whole family.
Course Info:
Swim 1/2 Mile: A fast, down current swim in the Columbia River! Novice swimmers can feel comfortable knowing the edge is just a few feet away in the event they get tired. The only rule is you can't advance forward if you're touching the sand. So if you must take a break, you must stay where you are until you are ready to resume swimming. Any swim stroke is acceptable including front crawl, back crawl, side-stroke, back float and doggie paddle.  Athletes will walk from the swim exit to the swim start 1/2 mile upstream. Consider it a great warm-up! Wetsuits are allowed but not required. Sorry, arm floaties or inner tubes are not acceptable for the adults. 

Bike: The cycle is a 12.5 mile flat ride along country roads. Road or mountain bikes are allowed. Helmets are required.

Run/Walk: The run is a 3 mile flat, out and back run or walk on paved trails.
