Pre Race Communication and Information

Race Weekend Guide has been sent and is posted here.

On the Monday prior to TRi KiDS Ottawa the “Race Weekend Guide” will be sent via email to all registered participants.  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.

Please do not contact us in advance for wave start times. 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 25m indoor pool at the Richcraft Recreation Complex.  Lifeguards will be on deck at all times.

There will be a maximum of 10 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.  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 water wings, puddle jumpers or a life jacket (if desired). Life jackets will be supplied.  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 1.5km loop on Innovation Dr. This traffic free course is flat and paved. All age groups will do multiple loops in order to achieve their respective distance.

Run

The run course takes athletes around the perimeter of the artificial turf field adjacent the Richcraft Recreation Complex. The run is a 500 meter ‘track’ entirely on the turf grass. Athletes will complete the required number of laps to achieve their respective distance. There will be one water station set up for all age groups.  The older age groups will pass the water station on each lap.
