Registration open for SheROX Federal Way Triathlon

Women interested in participating in the SheROX Federal Way Triathlon have until April 30 to get a $10 discount on the registration fees.

Registration is open at www.sheroxtri.com.

The July 10 triathlon will unfold at 7 a.m. at Steel Lake Park, 2410 S. 312th St., Federal Way. The sprint distances cover a half-mile swim, 20K (12.4 mile) bike ride and 6.6K (4.1 mile) run. Race distances, along with the popular SheROX Mentor Program, encourage first-timers as well as women of all ages and fitness levels to sign up.

Individual fees are $75 until April 30, $85 from May 1 until registration closes. For relay teams, the fee is $120 until April 30, $140 from May 1 until registration closes.

The SheROX Federal Way Triathlon is sanctioned by USA Triathlon. All participants, including relay team members, must be a USAT member or purchase a single event permit for $10.

Competing solo or on a team

Women can compete individually or as part of a relay team with friends. The race has a Survivor Wave open to women in all stages of cancer recovery and treatment, and a Buddy Wave for friends and relatives who want to race in support of, or in memory of, friends or family members. Space is limited in these two special divisions.

Again this year, the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund will serve as the official charitable partner. Athletes will have the opportunity to join “Team Hope,” pledging to raise funds for OCRF as they race. To date, the series has raised more than $1 million for this cause.

Race weekend begins Saturday, July 9, with the MultiSport Experience, a free expo held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Steel Lake Park. Open to the public and mandatory for race participants, the Expo has clinics on training and nutrition, demonstrations, and bargains on gear and apparel. Participants get briefed on the race and can pick up race packets, T-shirts and bags.
