The Annual Cultus Lake Triathlon is held each year at Cultus Lake Park just outside Chilliwack, BC. Located a 90 minute drive from Vancouver it is a great end of season race for both the seasoned and first time triathlete hosting Sprint, Standard, Aquabike & Half Iron races.
The swim is in Cultus Lake with a waist deep water start and is divided into separate swim waves. The transition is located on the grass area between the lake and the Main Beach parking Lot on grass.
The bike course for the Sprint is out and back to Yarrow and a one loop course through Yarrow and out into farm country and back for the Standard distance event. The course is mostly flat with a short climb out of the Park to start the bike and a short climb as you turn right on to Columbia Valley Rd just before you get back to transition at the end of the bike.
You will finish the final leg of the race on the KITS run course alongside the lake and past summer cottages, while local residents cheer you on to the finish line!
The race starts and finishes beside the lake at Main Beach and the post-race awards and lunch is held on site, weather permitting.
This event has sold out the last three years, selling out two months before the event in 2018, please register early to avoid disappointment.

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:
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.
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
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.
