About This Activity

The Portland Triathlon Club presents an awesome opportunity to practice your triathlon skills in a non-competitive environment: The Annual Mock Triathlon.

This is an excellent training event - allowing you to see where you are in your triathlon fitness, as well as offering first-timers the opportunity to try the sport in a supportive environment.

This is a “mock” triathlon, not a formal competition with finisher medals and official timing. It is a learning race where all participants see demonstrations, attend clinics, and go through a Sprint or Olympic distance triathlon. Everyone has a chance to “tri" in a safe healthy atmosphere.

After the event, stay and celebrate with the PTC at our BBQ.


There will be two distance options, which you will choose on event day. You can choose to try a sprint-like distance and an olympic-like distance.

The purpose of the day is for you to either try the sport, or to fine tune your skills before you summer races.

Approximate distances include:

Sprint - Swim 500 meters, Bike 10 miles, run 3 miles

Olympic - Swim 700 meters, Bike 20 miles, run 6 miles

Not comfortable with swimming? We will have swim support that includes kayaks, SUP's and swim angels (experienced swimmers that can swim beside you).

The course for bike and run are out and back, so you can choose the amount of laps you complete. The course is flat and fast.
