Course Description

Swim The water temperature is almost always in the low 70s. The water can range from flat to very choppy, depending on the wind. Be prepared for rough water, and be pleasantly surprised if it is calm ! For this reason, wetsuits are always recommended. The short course is a deep water start off the pier beside transition, and follows a triangular course. The long course is an in-water start, out and back course.
Bike The bike course is along highway #2. The road is shared with motorized traffic. There is a 3 foot paved shoulder most of the course. The course is rolling hills with one or two good climbs. We sweep the course prior to race day.
Run The run has flat sections with a few medium sized hills. There is not much shade, but every kilometer has a water station with water, ELoad and sponges.
We are sanctioned by the Ontario Association of Triathletes.

Directions to Event

Transition is located on Ontario St right in front of City Hall.
From the 401 take Division St exit south to Princess St, left on Princess St to bottom, right on Ontario St.
