Triathlon Canada Rules apply, including no drafting on the bicycle course.
We are very fortunate to have 30+ volunteers -- many with race experience -- on the course at all the major intersections for the run and bike. The RCMP also provide support.
The Classic bike route is a 28k loop and there are sections where you will be between checkpoints. Triathlon Canada rules say you must be self supporting ... ie: if you have a flat, you should be able to repair it. We do have a sweeper vehicle that follows the last rider and can pick up riders that are unable to continue.
T-shirts for all participants. Registrants can select their size.
Classic - Medal to the 1st place Male and Female for 18 - 29, 30 - 39, 40 - 49, 50-59, 60+
There will be a hot meal served at the Riverport Community Centre starting at approximately 12 noon.
