THE RACE: The Triathlon is a 500 yard swim Friday night with a 12-mile bike and 2-mile run on Saturday. The swim will be at the Asotin County Family Aquatic Center from 3:30-8:30pm on Friday. The bike (both mountain and road bikes are welcome) will start at 10:00am + your swim time (IE - if you swim time was 7:47 then you will start at 10:07:47am). The bike portion leaves the parking lot area, heads out the main park entrance road and takes a RIGHT onto Tammany Creek Road. Then proceed out Tammany (South and East) to the 6-mile turn around (just past Lucky Acres Arena) then returns to Hells Gate. The run starts at the far North parking lot at Hell's Gate State Park and heads North on the levee path 1 mile then returns to the transition area in the parking lot. The finish will come into the parallel parking lot as the transition area.
Course Descriptions: HERE
SPECIAL NOTE ON THE SWIM - the swim is a first come first serve for swimming. We will do our best to keep it one person to a lane. Do to potential time constraints and number of entrants you may be asked to circle swim, but this will be avoided if at all possible. We will have all lanes at our disposal. Come early and/or please be patient in this process. ALL SWIMS MUST TAKE PLACE AT THE AQUATIC CENTER (see exception below). ALL SWIMS MUST BE COMPLETED BY 9PM, any swimmer still in the water at 9:00pm will automatically be placed into the "non-swimmer" category with the subsequent 60 second time penalty (seen special note below).
ALSO - WETSUITS and other FLOATATION DEVICES are NOT ALLOWED in the swim. Swim Skins will be acceptable.
***We are offering a special "convenience" swim to our participants from the Spokane/Coeur D'Alene area. From 6-9pm, you can do your swim at the Northside YMCA pool. Same time constraints apply (must finish swim by 9pm). It will cost you $5 to do your swim there. This fee must be paid in advance or at the door if you register on race day. Active.com will have an option for you to choose that will allow this, otherwise you will need to indicate that on your entry form and pay the fee. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE ALLOWED. These are the only two options for doing the swim, otherwise you will be placed in the non-swimmer category with applied penalty (see below). We hope that by adding this option it will be more convenient for some of our participants from this area and save them some money as compared to staying overnight in Lewiston.
ADDRESS FOR NORTHSIDE YMCA - 10727 N. Newport Hwy. Spokane, WA 99218
