Event Races

Adult Races

Standard + Standard Relay

Sunday, July 5, 2020 – Swim 1.5k, Bike 37.2km, Run 10km

The 2020 course will be very similar to the 2019 Triathlon Canada National Standard Championships race course. This course will both challenge and inspire athletes to be their best as they swim, bike and run through beautiful Kelowna, BC. The run follows the shoreline of Lake Okanagan and is flat and spectator friendly. The 2020 course maps will be available soon. 

There will be one qualifying spot per age category for the 2021 ITU Grand Final World Championships in Bermuda.

RELAY: The Standard distance race can be done in a relay with a total of 3 people racing (one swimmer, one cyclist, one runner) or 2 people racing (one person completing two disciplines). The distances remain the same. There are different categories to compete in (Open Male, Open Female, Open Mixed and Family).

Try-a-Tri

Saturday, July 4, 2020 – Swim 300m, Bike 8.5km, Run 1.7km

Many people have commented that they would like to try a triathlon but were nervous about the swim. We have a solution! It’s called our Super Sprint Try-a-Tri. A great way to Try-a-Tri for those who are after a short distance to test the waters with a short 300m swim (12 lengths of a 25m. pool) in warm and calm Lake Okanagan.

Sprint

Sunday, July 5, 2020 – Swim 750m, Bike 18.6km, Run 5km 

A shorter version of the Standard race with half the distance in each discipline. This non-drafting race is a great start for new triathletes or a hard and fast effort for seasoned short-distance athletes.

The 2020 course maps will be available soon. 

There will be one qualifying spot per age category for the 2021 ITU Grand Final World Championships in Bermuda.

Kids triathlons are meant to offer kids and young adults the opportunity to experience the sport of triathlon in a positive environment. The distances are much shorter than those in adult triathlons, and change as participants mature. Most kids are fit enough to finish a Kids Triathlon successfully and have fun at the same time.
