Peninsula Poverty Response hosting Cape D Sprint Triathlon

Nearly two dozen people competed last year in the third annual Cape D Sprint Triathlon in Ilwaco. The race started with a 500 meter swim on Black Lake.

ILWACO — For its third consecutive year, Peninsula Poverty Response is hosting the Cape Disappointment Sprint Triathlon. Ocean Beach Hospital (OBH), SALT Hotel and Pub, WellSpring Community Network are among those joining together with local volunteers to raise awareness and resources for those affected by poverty in South Pacific County. Experienced and novice triathletes are welcome.

“This is a great way for athletes to level up and try a triathlon or for serious competitors to use as a warm-up for even larger summer events,” organizer Brandon Scheer said. “All while enjoying some of the most beautiful views on the Washington Coast!”

OBH Chief Executive Officer Larry Cohen said “Ocean Beach Hospital & Medical Clinics are pleased to sponsor the Cape D Triathlon. We are honored for the opportunity to support an occasion that directly encourages health and wellness in the community we serve.”

With a 500-meter swim across black lake, a 12-mile bike ride around Cape D and a sprint around our Ilwaco Port and beautiful black lake trails, athletes are encouraged to compete and enjoy themselves.

Registration includes team and individual categories and awards will be divided between top men and women in each of those categories. Athletes as young as 16 are welcome.

Salt Hotel and Pub will welcome triathletes to their sunny outdoor patio for libations and food directly after the event where event organizers will present the awards.
