38th Annual PDX Triathlon Festival Attracts Over 1100 Athletes

 

Portland, OR – 1133 athletes competed at the 38th Annual PDX Triathlon Festival at Blue Lake Park. The competition was fierce, the weather was perfect, and the scenery was stunning as athletes competed for the Oregon State Championship and USAT National rankings. Although many competitive athletes were in attendance, the majority of the athletes were those just trying to get to the finish line.

 

PDX Triathlon Festival also raised over $4000 for local schools, clubs and teams who volunteered at water stations and the finish line to raise funds. Sherri McMillan, race director for PDX Triathlon Festival states “It’s amazing what a weekend of fun and racing can do to support others and our community. In addition, we had over 100 kids participate in our FREE Kids Triathlon teaching them to learn to love a healthy lifestyle!”
