ABOUT THE WHIDBEY ISLAND TRIATHLON
This is a great first triathlon and a fun event for veteran triathletes. This very scenic course starts with a 0.5 mile swim in beautiful Goss Lake. Leaving the lake on your bike, you’ll begin the 19.5 mile ride through paved country roads. The bike course is hilly with views of Saratoga Passage and the North Cascades. Finish with a 3.8 mile run through forest trails at Community Park and on country roads. Chip timing is provided by BuDu Racing. Extensive support provided by friendly volunteers. Open to the first
300 swimmers, this event has limited space and fills to capacity, so register early!

Due to the nature of the multi sport business, many of our expenses need to be paid up front to reserve supplies and receive permits. It is therefore not possible for us to provide refunds on registrations (unless we have to cancel the event, in which case we will provide a full refund minus any registration service fees). To date we have never had to cancel an event, and we will do our best to continue that record. We will, however, provide rollover credits for next year’s race if for some unfortunate reason you are unable to join us for this year’s event and have already registered. If you need to discuss a credit with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registrants need to contact us prior to 30 days of the event in order to receive their credit for the following year’s event. Requests made 30 days or less to the day of the event will null and void their right for a rollover voucher, although we will try to be as flexible as possible. Please understand that it is not our intention to profit from this policy, rather to be able to continue to offer a consistent quality of event at a reasonable cost.
