Back for a second year, Best in the West Events brings you a 3-day Iron distance triathlon relay. The Iron Relay is a fun way to for families, groups of friends, age-groupers, and die-hard athletes alike to enjoy a weekend-long multi-sport relay event. The Iron Relay will cover the distance of a full Iron-distance triathlon event. However, it is broken up over a 3-day weekend on August 11-13, 2017. Participants can have fun with their friends who may be trying one, or all of the disciplines of triathlon for the first time! Each leg will also conclude with a social event at a different venue each day with free camping all weekend in Corvallis near the fair grounds.
Participants can complete any portion of the event distance they choose, from a single individual doing the whole thing up to a team with a maximum number of 10 individuals and a maximum of 5 on any given leg of the event.
By the conclusion of the weekend, each team will have completed the equivalent of an Iron-distance triathlon.
