The 15th annual Enviro-Sports Escape from the Rock triathlon will take place on Sept. 11 on Mercer Island.
The event starts at 8 a.m. with a half-mile swim in Lake Washington, and an 8.5-mile bike ride out and back on the closed I-90 express lanes. Racers will finish up with a 2.5-mile run around the streets on Mercer Island.
“The name Enviro-Sports means that we’re all about putting on events in the most beautiful locations imaginable,” said David Horning, the race producer. “The draw of Mercer Island, the I-90 floating bridge and the beauty of the surrounding area are just too great for us to ignore.”
The registration fee is $80 per person and there is a mandatory check-in on Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Members of Mercer Island High School sports teams are volunteering at the event, helping with athlete check-in on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Mercer Island Community and Events Center.
