Shake out the Pre-Season Jitters with a Test Run Triathlon! Our biggest event of the year and perfect for everyone from First-Timers to Seasoned Veterans. The Portland Triathlon Club presents an awesome opportunity to practice your triathlon skills in a non-competitive environment: The 14th Annual Mock Tri. 

This is an excellent training event - allowing you to see where you are in your triathlon fitness, as well as offering first-timers the opportunity to try the sport in a supportive environment.

This is “mock” triathlon is not a formal competition with finisher medals and official timing. It is a learning race where all participants see demonstrations, attend clinics, and go through a Sprint or Olympic distance triathlon. Everyone has a chance to “TRI” in a safe healthy atmosphere.

One price for any distance.

Your registration will get you:

- An event shirt and goodie bag. *** If you did not sign up before April 19th you will not receive a shirt! *** 

- Access to pre-event clinics that will teach you key things all triathletes should know.

- A safe, fully supported, swim course in Vancouver Lake.

- A well marked, easy to navigate, bike and run course.

- Aid stations (2) on the run course.

- A secure transition area to give you the full race day experience.

- LUNCH at the BBQ celebration after the event.
