2019 Wine Capital of Canada Triathlon
Sprint/Standard/Standard Relay

Join us on Saturday June 1st, 2019 for the 16th Annual Wine Capital of Canada Triathlon!

The WCOC triathlon race kicks off a weekend of triathlon racing in Oliver, B.C. Featuring both sprint and standard distance races, as well as a relay division for standard distance.

Swim start and race finish take place at Rotary Beach on Lakeside Dr. in Oliver. The swim takes place in the clean, protected waters of Tucelnuit Lake.

The scenic bike course through wine country will consist of an out-and-back Sprint course and a single loop Standard course.

Athletes will finish with a fairly flat, out & back run that takes you through the idyllic, quiet residential streets of Oliver.

Refund, Transfer And Rollover Policy

New for 2019! We have partnered with TicketGuardian to offer athletes the option to add insurance to their race entry...this will allow you to register with confidence knowing that in the event of the following circumstances you will be able to recover your entry fees:

  • Last minute work conflicts
  • Injuries
  • Family emergencies
  • Unexpected illness
  • Car accidents
  • And several more common issues that can sneak up

The cost of insurance is 6.5% of your total entry and you will be eligible for a 100% refund including taxes and processing fees if you need to cancel. For full coverage details click HERE

With the addition of TicketGuardian as an option, effective for all 2019 events, Dynamic Race Events will no longer offer rollovers to the following year. All race entries are NON-REFUNDABLE. If you choose to not opt in for TicketGuardian coverage you will forfeit your option to recoup any costs associated with your registration.

Race Transfers

In the event that you are unable to race in an event that you are currently registered, race transfers to another one of our Series events in the SAME calendar year are possible up until 2 weeks from the event race day that you are currently registered

  • A transfer fee of $50 + Race Roster processing fees will be applied to ALL transfers, regardless of distance of the original registration
  • Registration pricing differences will be applied if the transfer is to an event with a higher entry fee
  • If you have opted in to race insurance through TicketGuardian for your original race entry and choose to transfer to another event, this will nullify your TicketGuardian policy and your new event entry will NOT be covered under your original policy

Cancellation due to weather or unsafe conditions: we have been fortunate that in 15 years we have not had to cancel an event due to bad weather conditions.  An event may be delayed or cancelled due to adverse, inclement, or unsafe weather.  Should the event be delayed, the starting time of the event will be moved back accordingly. The delay will be communicated to all participants. Event management team and local law enforcement have the authority to cancel an event if deemed unsafe to continue.  If cancellation of an event takes place, please follow instructions of the event officials and local law enforcement personnel. Your entry fee is non-refundable in the event the race is cancelled due to adverse, inclement, or unsafe weather. TicketGuardian does NOT cover cancellation due to weather. The only exception is if the event takes place and you are unable to get to it because of weather, i.e. a cancelled flight.

Advertised Courses: All of our events and courses are planned well in advance and advertised in good faith as such. As with all events, permitting does not occur until closer to the event date by those agencies which we are required to submit our applications. As such, all courses are considered pending approval of final permit and may, due to unforeseen circumstances, such as construction, flooding or other uncontrollable acts be changed to ensure distance, permit approval and athlete safety. Course changes will be shared with registered athletes as soon as they have been confirmed with all stakeholders. Entry fees are non-refundable in the event of a course change. TicketGuardian does NOT cover change in desire to participate in the event of a course change.

All claims MUST be made within 30 days of the incident or by no later than 72 hours post event.
