Course Info:

Swim- The R.A.T. Race will begin at the Cascade Swim Center. The swim requires completion of 20 lengths of the 25 meter lap pool. Your estimated 500 meter swim time is needed to determine your race heat and assign your start time.

Bike - The 12 mile bike course begins and ends at the Cascade Swim Center parking lot. The course will have a nice variation in scenery and elevation changes. The circuit leads bikers along the outskirts of our city on newly paved county roads and back through the residential areas of Redmond to the pool. Ride on the right side of the road and pass to the left. Drafting, defined as being within 3 bike lengths of the rider in front of you, is not allowed. Flaggers and volunteers will be at intersections along the race course, but ALL RACERS must obey traffic laws. This course is not closed!

Run 5k / 3.1 miles—The run course will begin at the Cascade Swim Center parking lot. Participants will head east out of the Cascade Swim Center parking lot, through Sam Johnson park and along paved pathways in Redmond’s Dry Canyon. Participants will head north in the canyon to the turn around point near the Maple Street bridge. They will return to Sam Johnson Park where the finish line will be and the celebration of completion begins! The run course will be marked with directional signs and each mile will be marked. The run course will be monitored by volunteers.

Cancer Sucks! 5k Walk/Run - The 5k race will follow the same course as the triathlon/duathlon.
