Tridents Triathlon and Duathlon
Thirteenth Edition

The 2015 running of the Navy Tridents Triathlon and Duathlon will be taking place on June 7, 2014 at the Shearwater Gym and Fitness Centre. We will be hosting three races which will be a Sprint Triathlon, Try-a-Tri Triathlon, and a Duathlon.

The Navy Triathlon and Duathlon is the 13th running of this race. It is a great way to get started in the sport of Triathlon for first timers, and an excellent way to see how you stack up against the competition after a long winter for more seasoned racers. We re looking forward to seeing you all here for an excellent day of racing!

Keep an eye on Facebook ( and your email for important race updates.

See you race day!

Prizes and SWAG

Anyone who finished just off the podium last year received a boost, a Sufferfest Cycle Training Videos.  Now they're ready to turn their forth place into crushing the competition.  Don't be sad that they're going to beat you...  Know that finishing forth will get you your very own Sufferfest Cycle Training video!  We're excited to welcome them back as a supporter of our race.  These videos will help you find what you need to crush the competition.


So close, yet so far. 4th place is the worst place of all. We want to help race participants because if they want to make the podium, then they need The Sufferfest and a bit more IWBMATTKYT. 

Race Belts

Still reading this page and not moving ahead with registration?  Need another reason to register?  Tired of messing with safety pins in your nice race gear?  The Tridents Triathlon and Duathlon has you covered!  In addition to a race T-Shirt, we're adding a stylish race belt to your kit that you can use all season.  It'll help with making a fast transition and not having to put holes through everything.



Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I be able to try out the course in advance?
    • Not in it's entirety.  The Pool portion is an active pool with it's own swim schedule.  The Runway is completely unaccessabile due to being partially a live runway.  The Run portion can be accessed any time as it is the Shearwater Flyer trail. 


  • What time do I need to arrive for registration? 
    • You should arrive approximately an hour and a half before your heat to give you time to register and get setup.  Please do not arrive at the registration desk more than two hours before your heat as it can cause a bottleneck at registration.  There is also a limited amount of space in the Transition area so please do not rack your bike too early before your heat and remove it promptly once you have finished racing.


  • The run is on a trail, do I need trail shoes? 
    • No, the trail is crusher dust and quite smooth. 


  • What time is my heat?
    • Heat times will be emailed to your registration email a day or so after registration closes. 


  • What time is race kit pickup?
    • Race kit pickup is part of registration the day of the race.   Please do not arrive at the registration desk more than two hours before your heat as it can cause a bottleneck at registration.


  • I would like to sign up for the race on race day. 
    • No. In order to setup the heats to run as quickly as possible we can not include race day registration.


  • Registration is closed and it is still before the deadline for registration, why can't I still register? 
    • Registration may be closed early due to the race selling out prior to the deadline.


  • There are no more Sprint Triathlon spots, but there are still Try-A-Tri spots.  Can I still do the sprint? 
    • The maximum registrants for those two events will be shuffled as needed up to a maximum between the two.  That number represents the maximum number of people we can run thorugh twelve person heats in the allocated amount of time for the day.


  • I'm traveling to the race with someone, can we be in the same heat? 
    • Maybe.  We group racers based on swim times.  Sometimes we can move people into slower heats to keep people grouped together.  Usually we can get people in almost the same heat so they race in the morning or afternoon together.  While we can try to accomidate, we cannot promise that it will be possible.  Please enter a note in the special requirements with this request


  • Is there a Team Event?
    • Unfortunately there is not a team event offered at this year's race.  There has been some interest in team events, with enough demand we would consider adding it as an option to future events.


  •  Is there a Junior Event?
    • There is not a specific event being held for Juniors.  Due to the current race heat format the additional requirements to keep the draft legal portion of the race separate for Juniors increases the gap between those heats significantly and a less racers per hour are able to get through the event.  If there are enough Junior racers we will be attempting to group them together in early race heats of the main event.


  • I can't make it to the race, do you need volunteers?
    • Yes, please contact us via email and we'll get you on the volunteer list.  We're looking for lots of volunteers, we would need a commit for the whole morning or whole afternoon.  Both is ok too, but it is a long day.


  • Is there an awards ceremony? 
    • Awards for the top finishers in each gender for each race will be given out.  Times are posted in the event details.  Even if you haven't finished on the podium come by.  Forth in class and draw prizes may be available too!


  • Are there showers available?
    • There are!  Showers, lockers, and washrooms are available in the Shearwater gym facility
