All adult racers must read 2023 Race Guide
The Standard distance triathlon features a beautiful course in the Rocky Mountains and attracts some of the fastest triathletes in the West. Age groupers and elites compete together on a scenic and fast course.
The Triathlon and Aquabike swim is a 750 m triangular loop x 2 starting from the Horseshoe Bay beach (the swim will be held in the smaller North Bay of the lake). Wetsuits are allowed if temperatures meet ITU regulations. The cycling leg is mostly flat with some rolling hills. It starts with a clockwise loop going 3/4 of the way around Wasa Lake and then spins cyclists around to follow the Canadian Rockies and the Kootenay River heading south towards the Heritage Town of Fort Steele. The return portion takes cyclists directly back to the transition area via the south park entry/exit. The triathlon will wrap-up with 2 flat out-and-back run segments, with a cruise by the transition zone in between.
