Ottawa Early Bird Triathlon & Duathlon
Somersault Events


 The Ottawa Early Bird Triathlon & Duathlon is the first event of the Somersault Event Series - a great early season warm up for the avid participant, and an inviting event for the first-timer.

Want to “Try a Tri”, “Do a Du”, just get out there and join others who want to swim, bike, or run?  You can get a group together for a relay – just get out there – sign up and do it!

For those looking at the triathlon, the pool swim is safe, warm, and features a time trial start to help ensure you are not lapped or crowded out. The cycle course is scenic and traffic-free along Colonel By Drive, while the run courses are traffic-free on grass and recreational pathways.

Make it your mission in 2016 to cross that finish line!   Join us and celebrate your start to the triathlon/duathlon season!
