Join us for the 21st annual Whidbey Island Triathlon! Beloved by locals and visitors alike for its scenic course and friendly volunteers, the Whidbey Island Triathlon is a great first triathlon for beginners, and still a fun and challenging event for experienced triathletes. The scenic course starts with a 0.5 mile swim in beautiful Goss Lake on Whidbey Island. Leaving the lake on your bike, you’ll begin the 19.5 mile ride on tree-lined 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. Open to the first 300 bikers, this event has limited space and often fills to capacity, so register early! Beginners are embraced at this welcoming race. Photo by Justin Burnett, South Whidbey Record.
