The KTown reserves the right to limit registrations in any of the courses.
In the last several years we reached capacity and
had to turn people away. To avoid this happening to you, register early.

morning, from 6:00 to 7:00 am.
There will be no waiting list.
We are sanctioned by the Ontario Association of Triathletes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
