Elton Home Team: East Side Tri
Lake Sammamish State Park, a popular venue for triathlon for many years, is the home of Raise the Bar's next race - the Elton Home Team Eastside Triathlon. With many recent, beautiful renovations to the park grounds, facilities, beaches, and family areas, athletes will find a great new venue waiting for them in July 2017.
The Swim begins at Sunset Beach - a favorite recreation area that is undergoing a major remodel scheduled for completion prior to race day. Participants will swim a single-loop clockwise course of .75 miles, exit the water, and run past the bathhouse to sprawling transition area to mount their bikes. The 22.8 mile Bike course travels clockwise around Lake Sammamish. Cyclists will enjoy a mostly-flat course with only a few gentle climbs and descents that travels close to the lake, through the beautiful Marymoor Park, and back on East Lake Sammamish Parkway. The race concludes with a flat 4-mile run on the park trails, boardwalk, and groomed paths inside the Park. Athletes can expect the familiar, energy-filled finish line experience, complete with a full breakfast, awards celebration, and prize giveaways.
