Plutonium Man Triathlon - Individual



RACE  FORMAT 1.3 km swim; 40 km bike; 10 km run

Course Description: Swimmers enter the Columbia River at a beach about 400 yards upstream of the North Richland starch plant (note that the start on the map is not accurate...we will not start at the POB low dock barge slip) and swim downstream with the current (fast times, baby) 1.3 km to the exit just upstream of Sprout Road.  The single transition area will be at the SE corner of the WSU Tri-Cities campus grounds.  Cyclists will head west on Sprout Road, turn right on George Washington Way, staying on this road until it merges with Stevens Drive.  Staying on this road until just past the main Energy Northwest entrance, the cyclists make a U-turn and head back the same way.  An out-and-back on the FFTF hill will give a quick elevation change, and then back to the transition area the same way as the ride out.  The run will consist of two loops that take runners upstream (north) along the foot path, with a hard left turn by the Triton Submarine monument, back along Richardson Road, taking a left on Crimson Way, and back through the WSU campus.  Note to locals: PLEASE  don't ride the bike course during rush hour commuter traffic!

Mini-Tutorial on Registration: To help you through the process, here is a quick tutorial:

  • Start at the top of Event Registration with the orange-highlighted box entitled “Choose an Option.”  Go to the drop-down list and choose which option (race only, clothing option, one-day license) you want.  The specific cost that will be charged to your credit card is also listed.
  • The next box down is the clothing option box.  If you chose the race clothing in the “Choose an Option” box, indicate your size in this box.  If you did not order the optional clothing, then select “none” in this box.
  • Fill out all required fields as usual and remember to include your USAT number when prompted if you did not choose to purchase a USAT one-day license.  If you are not a USAT member, you will need to purchase the one-day license for multi-sport events.
  • Continue with your registration until credit card payment is complete.

If you have any questions on this, feel free to contact any of the Website administrators listed on the Info – Officers page on our website.

Volunteers: We need lots of volunteers for all our multi-sport events. If you can help at this event, please contact Eric Greager at .
