The Federal Escape Triathlon Has Been Cancelled for this year and the foreseeable future! For more information please visit our blog post on the cancellation at: Federal Escape Triathlon Cancellation Notice.
This year the Federal Escape Triathlon features a sprint and Olympic distance triathlon and Aquabike’s, as well as a Tri for Kids at beautiful Five Mile Park in Federal Way Washington. This will be our 8th year putting this event on, and like last year we are looking forward to making sure you all have a great time. The course is the same as the last two years, so if you are looking to see how you measure up to your prior results, this is a great way to do so. In an effort to provide all of you a better and safer experience we will be starting the event one hour earlier this year. Now I know 6:30 am seems awfully early, and I can’t agree more with you because I’m not an early bird myself, however starting this early means we have less traffic on the roads and therefore a better race for you! The Federal Escape Triathlon will feature a race expo, DJ & Live announcer, post race food, and more, and will be certain to be a memorable event. This is both a family friendly and also competition friendly event. And if you have children, make sure to bring them so they can have fun as well.
As last year, we are pleased to continue our relationship with the Supply Kids Foundation to help raise school supplies for elementary aged children in economic hardship regions and regions affected by natural disasters. More info on them a bit further down the page.
We are extremely pleased to announce that the Federal Escape Triathlon has again been selected to be the Washington State Best Of The US Qualifier for 2013. For more information on the Best Of The US Qualifier, please visit Best Of The US Qualifier Home Page.
