Run by Triathletes for Triathletes


Swim - 700m  .  Bike - 21K  .  Run - 5K


The Fresh Air Kelowna Cherry Blossom Triathlon was conceived in 2013 and has grown to be an immensely popular event, selling out well in advance of race day.  

Kelowna boasts one of the country's premier swim facilities – the H2O Aquatic Centre. This first class venue has a 50m pool, perfect for creating a great pool swim for the event. The H2O is surrounded by an ideal, spectator friendly bike loop circuit, fairly flat and fast with the 'Cherry Hill Coffee Hill Climb' a nice added feature. A mix of road and trails to make the 5km run fun, interesting and scenic.

Your race fee includes re-entry to the H2O Aquatic Centre to enjoy post race swim cool down, hot tub, steam room and showers.

*** Please note ***

Entries are capped and we will declare "sold out" once our event hits capacity. For the past few years, it has been sold out by February.  We provide updates on Facebook, Instagram and our newsletter as we approach capacity.  Newsletters are emailed to all participants leading up to the race - if you do not get information emailed to you, it is likely going to your spam folder.  

Transfers and re-funds are NOT guaranteed and are granted on a case-by-case basis once the event is sold out.  An administrative fee ($30) will be applied to transfers / re-funds.

No transfers or re-funds will be processed after April 20th, 2019. New this year: Please update your swim seed time by logging into your registration dashboard on Race Roster account (ie. how you registered for the race) by April 20th.   

Thank you very much for registering, we know you'll have a great race - we enjoy seeing all the hard work and smiling faces out on course.
