Posted: April 2, 2013

Swim. Bike. Run. Celebrate! Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) will be the site for a triathlon that is expected to bring more than 400 athletes to the area, May 27 of Memorial Day weekend.

The Mt. Hood Sprint Triathlon is a partnership among Series 33 Triathlon and the MHCC Aquatic Center, MHCC Associated Student Government (ASG) and several student clubs.

Beginning at 7:30 a.m., competitors will swim one-half mile in the college’s outdoor pool, then tackle a 13.3-mile bike course featuring a couple of challenging climbs and a two-mile section that is expected to quickly zap cyclists’ legs. Next,competitors will run 3.1 miles (5 kilometers) on campus and local streets, ending near the Aquatic Center.

The event is open to athletes 15 years and older. Registration is available at http://series33triathlon.com/home/
