Northwest Natural

The Washington Ironman is now the NPC Northwest Natural!

While the show has a new name, it’s the same Drug-Tested National Qualifier that athletes have enjoyed for decades. The NPC Northwest Natural incorporates random polygraph testing covering a two year testing period from the date of the show. Please visit the Competitor Info page for a complete list of banned substances.

This show takes place in conjunction with the NPC Northwest Championships as part of a two day event in Auburn, WA. The Northwest Natural is held on Saturday, November 4th and the Northwest Open Championships will be held on Sunday, November 5th. Natural athletes may enter both competitions if they choose or may join us as attendees on Sunday to enjoy the show and celebrate our Triple Crown Award winners!
