The Oregon Dunes Triathlon and Duathlon
The Oregon Dunes Triathlon is the first open water triathlon of the season in Oregon. The clean, clear, shallow waters of Wohink Lake warm up quickly and make for a great early season open water swim. Wohink Lake is one of the cleanest lakes around, and is the main drinking water supply for Dunes City.
In addition to being the first open water triathlon, it is also the first USAT sanctioned event of the season and the only Olympic distance triathlon on the Oregon Coast.
The bike course features a challenging bike with rolling hills and a few climbs depending on the race. While some may call this bike “tough,” they readily admit that it is one of their favorites. The scenic ride travels along quiet, low traffic roads surrounding the lake and outskirts of Dunes City.
The run is one of the more exciting courses around the area. With trails, road and even some sand, you won’t get bored on this course! You will enjoy the views as you twist and turn through the beautiful Honeyman State Park. This memorable race concludes with a finish line dash up the dunes overlooking Cleawox lake. Talk about an epic finisher photo!
