In this odd and unprecedented year of 2020 in which all events have been canceled, the Rogue River Triathlon has been granted the green-light! We are going to run the event! We will be following Oregon state guidelines regarding COVID-19.
The Rogue River Triathlon is a special little event held in Agness beginning at 9 a.m. on Aug. 8. There are many reasons why this event is special, but let’s point out a few.
The run and bike sections of the event boast beautiful views of the river. The swim portion actually takes place in the river!
The event is a fundraiser for the Agness Library and the Agness Fire Dept. The entry fee is a donation and all proceeds go to the library and the fire department. The people of Agness also host a bake sale and we have a fundraiser drawing for donated prizes that add to the proceeds.
This event is a great starter Triathlon for anyone who has ever thought about doing a Triathlon. The swim is a half-mile distance down river, the bike ride is 12 miles and the run is 3 miles. Athletes can participate in an individual category or as a team. The run and bike portions of the event are on an out-and-back course so there is lots of support and encouragement from other athletes.
