COURSE AND EVENT DETAILS

THE SWIM

Olympic = 1500m (60 lengths)      |      Sprint  = 750m (30 lengths)     |      Tri It = 300m (12 lengths)

The swim course will take place at the Manluk Centre Aquatic facility (25m length, 6 lane). We will start 4 athletes per lane and you will complete your # of lengths of the pool. Volunteers will be on hand to count your laps and will put a flutterboard in the water when you have 2 lengths remaining. You will be assigned a wave # and start time which will be posted on the website & package pick-up locations, as well as posted at the race start. Athletes are asked that if they are feeling any trouble or difficulty during the swim portion to either raise their hand and a lifeguard will be there to assist you within seconds. We would like to thank the staff for their support of this event.
** note the swim is 'continuous feed'  - after the first start, when one athlete exits their lane, we send another to fill their spot.  Be on deck well in advance of your estimated start time.

THE BIKE   Map

Olympic & Duathlon = 40Km (4 laps)       |       Sprint = 20Km (2 laps)       |       Tri It = 10Km (1 lap)

Athlete exit transition and head North along 47th Street.  Athletes make a right turn onto Hwy 13, and then another right turn onto 73rd Streeth heading south. Athletes continue south to Hwy 613 and make a right turn heading west.  Turn right on 45th Street and continue north to 48th ave where you take a left turn.  Continue west along 48th Ave back to 47th street where you will turn right and get to the lap/finish point.  

Please keep in mind that the course will be open to vehicle traffic, and you are to treat this event as any other training ride and be very road wise while on the course. Vehicles will always have the right of way at intersections, and we will have volunteers to stop traffic when athletes are approaching, but remember you are responsible for your own safety while out on the course, and accidents can happen.

Please remember to look around you while on the course to foresee any unfortunate incidents that can occur. Remember to have fun on the course, and keep safety at the utmost priority.

THE RUN  Map

Olympic = 10Km (4 laps)          |          Sprint Triathlon = 5Km (2 laps)          |          Tri It = 2.5Km (1  lap)
Duathlon = 4 laps (first run), 2 laps (2nd run)

The run will travel west out of transition and then north along the sidewalk adjacent to 47th street.  Athletes will turn right onto 52nd Ave and follow that to a left turn at 45th Street.  Following 45th north, athletes will take a right turn on 56 ave followed by another right turn onto 44th Street.  Athletes follow this south past Sacred Heart School, to make another right turn back towards the starting area.  Tri it distance athletes go to the finish on the track.  Sprint athletes complete 2 laps of the route followed by 1 complete lap of the track!  Olympic distance athletes do 4 laps of the route and finish with 2 laps of the track!

Please be sure you drink lots of fluids on the bike course, as well as take advantage of the two aid stations on the run course for each lap. The weather can be unpredictable so please dress appropriately.

Volunteers will be on hand to marshal the course and signage will indicate turns etc

Please wear your race number on the front of your jersey/t-shirt (no bare chests allowed).
