The Corvallis Tri-umph relay came about from an idea to make it possible for single-sport athletes such as swimmers, cyclists and runners to experience the fun and challenge of a triathlon. In addition, Corvallis Triathlon Club members were looking to put on an event that brought friends and families together. Several of the club members have participated in other relay events, like “Pole, Pedal, Paddle”, “Hood to Coast” and “Barrel to Keg”. We wanted to put on something similar for the sport of triathlon. A team relay seemed like the ideal type of event to accomplish these goals. This allows people who may not be comfortable in all three sports or just want to try out the sport to get an understanding of it before attempting to do an individual triathlon.
We also thought it should be a full “Iron-distance” event to give people an opportunity to brag that they have “done” an Iron triathlon!!
2016 - the inaugural year
2017 - the second annual event!
2018 - 3rd year already?!
Who is supporting the race?

What's the atmosphere like?
This is a very welcoming social event. While there is some competition among teams, you can expect a weekend full of socializing with fellow athletes, making new friends, and a with bit of endurance sport sport mixed in. The team atmosphere is a fun way to get all of your friends and family involved. The last few years, everyone was supportive of everyone. We all cheered for one another. It is such a welcoming group, you'll have a great time whether you fly solo or create a team. We love endurance sport and the people who attempt it, regardless of speed or experience. We are all here to have a great time and support each other. Leave the usual race stress behind and come have a good time with us!
