Portland to host amateur triathlon’s premier event

    For three days in June, Portland will serve as home to more than 1,300 athletes taking part in one of the premier events for USA Triathlon: the 2007 Age Group Triathlon National Championship.

    The Intermediate distance triathlon – 1.5k swim, 40k bike, 10k run – is scheduled for Saturday, June 30 at 8 a.m. amid rolling hills around Henry Hagg Lake near Forest Grove, just 30 miles from downtown Portland.

    The days leading up to the race will include a number of other activities, including the Aquathlon National Championship at Hagg Lake on Thursday, June 28 at 3 p.m. Aquathlon features a 750m swim followed by a 2.5k run. (Note: The typical aquathlon format is run- swim-run, but the race has been modified to swim-run to allow for the use of wetsuits.)
