Since 2014, Raise the Bar has produced a June Lake Meridian Triathlon in addition to our August race. In 2017 we're going back to only one - this year on August 12. The development of RTB's Eastside Triathlon prompted the change in our calendar. Producing the new race at Lake Sammamish is a big undertaking, and not one that we're choosing to do without easing up the throttle elsewhere.
Competitors enjoy professional event production with outstanding athlete service thanks to the athlete/volunteer ratio of 5:1 - among the lowest in multisport.
The Lake Meridian Tri has a cap of 600 combined individual and relay entrants - the cap put in place to keep the congestion at a safe level on the swim and bike courses. The race has sold out in 3 of the last 4 years and we anticipate with the closure of the June race that it will sell out again. Athletes who are certain they are coming are encouraged to register early.
