Registration Open: Mid-Summer Tri/Du 8/3/2014 (Portland, Oregon)

MidSummer-AASlide-01 Yep, that is correct - you read it right! Registration is now open for the 30th annual Mid-Summer Triathlon and Duathlon, by AA Sports. This incredible combination of events, which is also the Tri Northwest Sprint Distance Championship event for 2014, will be held near Portland, Oregon (at Blue Lake Park) on Sunday, August 3, 2014.

Why is this event something you want to make sure to get registered for? Well, it is a Hawaiian themed triathlon and duathlon taking place at the wonderful Blue Lake Park near Portland (close to the airport). The water for the swim is traditionally so warm most participants don’t wear a wetsuit. The bike course is flat, as is the run. And, the finish line Hawaiian themed party is sweet. There is an awesome video highlighting the course and event that you should definitely check out.

Participants can choose from the Sprint triathlon (.5 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 5k run), Olympic triathlon (1.5k swim, 40k bike, 10k run), a Sprint duathlon (5k run, 12 mile bike, 5k run) or the Tri-It-Tri (.25 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 5k run).

I am so excited to be participating in the Tri-It-Tri for 2014. I am super-duper excited because this will be my very first triathlon! And, I’m even more super-dupity excited because it will occur over the weekend of my birthday!

Get registered for this awesome race and party, and I’ll see you there!
