“I love the Tri at the Grove because it brings me back to the essence of triathlon and the beauty of Oregon. It’s a small, but well run event with great people having an awesome time on a Saturday morning in a beautiful spot in the Oregon wilderness. It doesn’t get any better than that!”
–Jesse Thomas – 4x Wildflower Champion
Something that always sticks in my mind is the image of first arriving in the morning, race day and looking over the Lake! Every year I have done, the lake has been calm, maybe with a little mist or low cloud hanging over it. But it is one of those views that taking a picture would not do it justice. It makes me smile and think “Wow, I get to race here!”
It is a race I keep coming back to because I love not only the location and course, but the fun, social atmosphere. From first timers to the competitive triathlete, be prepared to feel pretty special when you cross that finish line!”
–Kate Bevilaqua – 3x Ironman Champion
