Burien Police Officer Jason Houck is also an ‘Ironman’
Jason’s impressive finish qualified him for the ‘Kona Ironman Triathlon’!
The Ironman is a very lengthy event, and includes a 2.4-mile swim (his time was just over an hour), a 112-mile bike ride (5:05) and ends with a full marathon (26.2 miles- 3:20).
Jason competed against 10 professional athletes in the event.
“Jason has been with the King County Sheriff’s Office for 13 years and has been a Burien Officer for over a year,” said Sgt. Cindi West of the King County Sheriff’s Office. “Join me in congratulating Jason on a great job!”
Jason competed in the triathlon in memory of fallen King County Sheriff’s deputies (see the photo of his tri-suit with the names of the fallen officers on the back).
