Off-road triathlons are returning to the Portland area in 2017. Thanks to PRS Fit, XTERRA PDX is making a comeback on August 12th. One month earlier on July 9th, the Hagg Lake Multi-sport Festival, produced by Why Events, will feature three new off-road races – a sprint triathlon, sprint duathlon, and sprint aquabike.
Not only will XTERRA PDX return to Hagg Lake, but the 2017 course is new and improved. A nearby private property owner graciously give permission to use the trails on his land. That means more than 95% of the bike and run are now off-road. Multiple off-road multi-sport events and trail running events offer something for everyone.
