Valley of the Sun Triathlon at Lake Aspen


Location: Yakima
North 16th Ave & SR 12

7:30am for Olympic competitors &  8:10am for Sprint competitors - Lake Aspen is once again headquarters for the 2018 Valley of the Sun triathlon. The swim and transition areas occur within the shaded business park. A fast, mostly flat bike course with a few rollers winds between orchards, while the Naches and Yakima Rivers add to the countryside beauty.  Runners will treasure the paved path of Yakima Greenway allowing a quick, fast out and back course. The Valley of the Sun again offers two distances, sprint and Olympic in 2018. The Olympic course is an extension of the current popular sprint race. Choose either the Sprint (750m swim, 12 mile bike and 5k run} or Olympic (1.5k swim, 41k bike and 10k run) distance as an individual or create a team. Price ranges from $35-95 depending on the registration time and course type. For more information, visit
