For more than 12 years, the Lake Whatcom Triathlon has brought together athletes from all over Whatcom County for a fun and safe competition. The triathlon consists of multiple distances, the two most popular being the Olympic and sprint distances. Each distance consists of three sections: swimming, biking and running. The other races include two relays where each of the three sections is divided between different athletes, and the aquabike, where athletes only complete the swimming and biking portion of the race. This triathlon brings together people of different ages, genders and athletic abilities. Bloedel Donovan Park, the west side of Lake Whatcom, is filled with music, food and people celebrating this event together.
