Course Description:

Current situation at Vantage boat launch due to the Wanapum Dam:

It is with sadness that BuDu Racing, LLC must cancel the 2014 Whisky Dick DAM Du. As you may know, the problems with Wanapum Dam near Vantage resulted in a cancelation of the Whisky Dick triathlon swim and, while there was some interest is doing a duathlon, there is just not enough. We are hopeful that by 2015 the Dam is repaired and the water levels are restored to normal. Please consider competing in the Ellensburg Sprint Triathlon on Saturday, July 26, as this is a great event as well...OK no great hill to climb to Whisky Dick, and the winds may not be as strong, but it is a fun course! For more information, please go to Ellensburg Sprint Tri. We hope to see you out there!!

JDRF BuDu Racing, LLC is proud to pledge a portion of the registration fees to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes have to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin, every day of their lives. And even with that intensive care, insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.

The Whisky Dick Triathlon has been going on for than 30 years. It’s tough, but not impossible! Even still, for those who just want to run you can use the same course and head out onto the John Wayne Trail, then going through some of the town and finish the run at the Fairgrounds. Great for spectators of the triathlon, who want something to do.
