Thank you to everyone who participated!
This inaugural Triathlon Together event is a short distance triathlon race presented by 4 time Olympian Simon Whitfield and 3433 Sport Performance Centre. This is a partnership event with WTS Edmonton and Toronto Triathlon Festival who will be running TriathlonTogether events in 2019, in the lead up to the 2020 WTS Grand Final Triathlon Together is open to participants of all abilities to enjoy the moment with their friends and family. Moving away from the traditional approach of triathlon being a solo sport, this event brings people together, to share the experience, and to create opportunities to meet and forge new relationships, together.
This is an event for people to take part or race and/or, for those experienced triathletes, mentor newcomers to the sport. A perfect opportunity for you to invite a friend or to take part with your kids. There is no specialized equipment required, just a swim suit and goggles, a t-shirt and a pair of trainers! We are getting back to the roots of our sport.
This short race is perfect for anyone:
- swim 150 metres
- bike 3 kilometres
- run 1 kilometre
The swim is 6 laps of our 25m competition pool, the bike is on a stationary trainer or use one of our already set up Keiser bikes, and the run is just 5 laps of the 200-metre indoor track.
Singles - $25
Duo - $30 for the duo
Squad - $35 for the squad
