Description

The TriMuskokan event itself is a destination, where the journey of becoming active through multi-sport is the real goal. The goal to leading an active and healthy lifestyle in a sport that supports cross training through strength, swim, bike, and run.

We call it an event, and not a race, because for many it is a celebration. A culmination of the exercise and training that will bring a personal challenge on the big day. Sure, you are on the course with a bunch of other people, but really the only person you are racing against is yourself. So, see the event as just that: a way to challenge yourself to do something new, something exciting, and something that is going to be a lot of fun!

The event has three main elements:
[1] TRY A TRI: this event distance is a perfect way to test the waters, literally, in the sport of triathlon. A 400m swim (16 lengths of the pool, do any stroke!), 10km bike (mountain or road bike), and a 2.5km run to top it off. This distance will leave you feeling on top of the world as you cross the finish line.

[2] SHORT COURSE TRIATHLON: This is a distance for those with a bit of experience in the sport or have a good baseline amount of fitness. The short course is a 750m swim, 30km bike, and 7km run. Mountain bikes are allowed, as participation is the main ingredient at the end of the day. There is a duathlon at this short course event as well which is a 2.5km run, 30km bike, and 7km run.

[3] FUN AND FABULOUS COMMUNITY CHALLENGES:
This year, we are trying to engage the local community by challenging themselves, their kids, their coworkers and their family members to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle with a attainable goal in sight. To help our community out, our triathlon club has created three new fun and exciting community based challenges:
1. A family relay challenge: family members put together a relay team, and hopefully challenge another family for bragging rights, and maybe who does the dishes at the celebratory post race dinner
2. A high school relay challenge: high school students aged 14-19 put together relay teams and compete with their school colours for academic supremacy
3. A corporate relay challenge: businesses can put relay teams together to create a healthy dose of friendly competition within a company, as well as to challenge their business rivals to see who comes out on top! This will provide a great opportunity for team building and collegiality outside of the business day.
