Pre Race Communication and Information

The Race Weekend Guide will be sent to all registered participants the afternoon of Monday, August 28th.  The Guide covers final details for race weekend and includes parking suggestions, set-up times, course information, race kit pickup instructions….and much more.  The Guide is sent to the email address provided at registration and it will also be posted on our home page under the News section.  Please review the Guide carefully and thoroughly as it contains very important information.

There are NO REFUNDS for withdrawals under any circumstance as stated on the Registration page.

We receive many emails and phone calls each day during the busy TRi KiDS race season. We do our very best to respond as quickly as possible, however we are often out of the office and away from our computers, particularly during race week. We do not answer calls or pick up voice mail starting on Friday of race weekend.  We prioritize emails and respond to the questions pertaining to the race that coming weekend. We post all information related to the events on the website and keep it up to date. We highly recommend checking our FAQ page, the Rules for Safety page and the Race Checklist.  We are confident your questions will be answered with these resources.

Swim

The swim takes place in the indoor pool at the Milton Sports Centre.  Lifeguards will be on deck at all times.

There will be a maximum of 12 athletes per wave.  Athletes will swim two per lane.  The swim will start in the water (no diving or jumping) and will end in the shallow end for all athletes 6 years and older.  Some age groups start their swim in the deep end (too deep to touch bottom). One parent or guardian must accompany participants of the 3-5 age group in the water (swim takes place in shallow end only) and on foot for the bike and run. All athletes may use puddle jumpers or a life jacket (if desired). Life jackets will be supplied.  Water wings, flutter boards or flippers are not permitted. It is expected that athletes 6 years of age and older will not require assistance in the pool however special arrangements can be made.  Contact us with special requests or for specific details on the swim.

Bike

The bike course is a traffic free 1.5 km loop on Santa Maria Blvd. The road is paved and flat. The older age groups will do multiple loops in order to complete their respective distance.

Run

The run course will take place on the sidewalk parallel to the bike course. Each athlete will run on the sidewalk for a distance equaling half of their total distance for their respective age group. The remaining half distance will be covered on the return run to the finish – to the cheers of family and friends!  There will be one water station on the run course for all age groups. Older age groups will pass the water station twice.
