XTERRA Vashon Island puts you back on the mountain bike. Before you get to the start, enjoy the ferry on to Vashon and see the beauty of the Sound. Start with an 800M swim in Quartermaster Harbor, which is routinely 65 degrees in open salt water. Transfer to your bike, starting heading into the trails with great singletrack trails and awesome views of the Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier, and Tacoma. You will complete three loops, for a total of 14 miles. The trail run heads up a long, ascent into the trails for singletrack running, making two loops on the top of the course and back down to the finish line. Keep an eye for an eagle or two. You need to be able to be finished within 3 hours.

BuDu Racing, LLC Charity of Choice: JDRF!

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.
