Why $20 off?  So you'll sign up!

The Lake Meridian Tri presented by Outpatient PT is rumored to be the best triathlon in the Pacific Northwest.  Heck, it was voted one of the Top 5 Small Races in the Nation by Tri-America last year.  

Why the discount? We want to fill it...plain and simple.  Sign up tomorrow with the code FILLITFRIDAY and let's see if we can fill up this race.  A full race means happy, generous sponsors that give great prizes and giveaways. It also means ENERGY...great rabid gobs of energy.  Can't beat racing in those conditions.

Why is there a limit on registration?   We don't want to bust the seams of the park, or the bike course (which is open to traffic).  Too many bikes on the road means it's harder for the cyclists and the vehicles to safely get past each other - so we'll keep our race entries to a safe level.

See you on Active tomorrow!    Use the code   FILLITFRIDAY


The 5 Top Age Group finishers at each of the Lake Meridian distances will stand on the podium and receive a pint glass at this year's race.  Typically, awards are given to the top 3 in each age group, but the folks at Raise the Bar figured why not celebrate and award 5 deep.

Tell your family & friends to hand around the finish line on race day - they'll be able to score some fun prizes too - noisemakers, beer cozies, t-shirts...etc. 
The typical array of prizes will be given away at the race again this year during the awards celebration and pancake breakfast.  All athletes  present will have a chance to win:
  • Cannondale Road Bike valued at $1500 from Northwest Tri & Bike
  • Profile Design Armada 30 wheelset valued at $500
  • Profile Design Aerobars - 3 sets valued at $139 each
  • Massage Certificates from Outpatient Physical Therapy
  • Zoot Transition Bags, Hats, and Visors
  • Garmim Duffel Bags & T-shirts
  • Golden Steer Restaurant Gift Certificate
  • Boxes of Powerbar Products
  • And More..
The  generous staff at Cycle Science Training in Tukwila will be providing prizes to the overall winners of the men's and women's Sprint & Olympic race this year.  

In the Sprint & Olympic races, each winner will receive a testing package that includes the following:
 V02 Max, Gas analysis, Onset of Blood Lactate, Maximum Cadence Test, Bifurcated Body Composition Assessment, Critical Power Testing, Personal one-on-one interview with the athlete (and their coach if applicable) to discuss the test results and suggested training.

If you're getting ready for, or considering registering for the Lake Meridian Triathlon presented by Outpatient PT, join the NWTB crew at 8AM for a ride of the Super Sprint/Sprint or Olympic bike courses.

You can find information about the courses HERE

The Saturday morning ride from NWTB is attended by friendly, bike enthusiasts like yourself who are looking for folks to ride with at their own pace.  That being said - everyone seems to have a different pace!! The group starts together and sorts out into smaller groups of similar speeds.  Please be prepared to make some new friends and know your way back to the shop if your riding group turns out to be small!
