Our duathlon has been named provincial championships for 2023. We will have championship medals for each 5 year age group!


This is the perfect warm up race for a seasoned triathlete or the perfect race for newbies. Our venue is small and space is limited. Register early so you don’t miss out. 

What’s included:

  • A safe and professionally managed race 
  • t-shirts for all participants (one each for teams)
  • finishers swag (one each for teams)
  • post race meal 
  • post race beer garden 

The triathlon consists of a 650m swim, 22km cycle and 5km run. The duathlon consists of a 2.5km run, 22km cycle and 5km run. Either can be done as an individual or in teams of two or three. Once everybody has completed the triathlon/duathlon, we’ll have a fun, non-competitive race for the kids.  The kids race is meant to be fun and we’re keeping the distances short so they’re appropriate for the under 7 crowd (but all ages are welcome). The swim will be approximately 50m and will be close to the shore line. Kids are more than welcome to wear life jackets. The cycle will be an out and back on the pathway only and will be about 1.5 km and the run will be from transition to the finish line for about 350m.

Entry fees include a t-shirt, finishers medal, post race BBQ and beer!

Why we Tri for Evan

Evan Penny is the inspiration for our family-oriented event that brings healthy, active people together. Now 18 years old, Evan experienced a traumatic brain injury and developed mitochondrial disease at the age of 4. As a result, he is now a non-verbal spastic quadriplegic. Evan requires constant care and copes with chronic pain, low energy levels, digestive issues, and frequent hospital stays.
Evan’s father, Blaine is the co-founder of MitoCanada, a national charity dedicated to ensuring all lives are powered by healthy mitochondria. These microscopic structures that are present in almost every cell in the body, create the energy we need our hearts to beat, lungs to breathe, brains to think and bodies to move. Mitochondrial disease is associated with dementia, cancers, Parkinson’s disease and more than 300 other devastating illnesses.
Thank you for sharing your collective energy to help MitoCanada reduce the devastating impact of mitochondrial disease by participating in Tri for Evan and donating to MitoCanada.

Please note: race registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable. You will be given the option to purchase cancellation insurance when you register online. You can transfer your own registration between triathlon and duathlon.
