About Us

Mission Statement

To create inspiring events for all goals.

Our Values

Safety - Above all, safety is our utmost priority. We are committed to ensuring that you are safe and supported in all of the phases of race day. Whether it is in water or on land, you will be supported by skilled safety teams.

Community - Our events serve as a gathering place for the running & multisport community. It is a community that lifts each other up and lends a hand when it is needed. We engage with our community continuously through seeking and responding to participant feedback and suggestions.

Fun - Why race days are so special - the buzzing energy at the start line and the pride and smiles at the finish. Fun is the reason why and at the end of each race, you cannot wait for the next one!

Inclusion - No matter if it is your first race or fiftieth, there is a place for you at Somersault events. We believe that triathlon, duathlon, and running are sports where everyone belongs. When you race with us, you are treated equitably, and always with respect.

About Us

Somersault is a race series, based in Ontario, Canada, that specializes in multisport and running events. Somersault has been producing events for over 35 years and has grown to now host thousands of athletes each year.

Now under new ownership, co-owners and husband and wife, Adam Kourakis and Elizabeth Krause are committed to continuing the Somersault legacy of putting on incredible events in the National Capital Region.

A message from Adam and Elizabeth

We both grew up in Ottawa, and are so grateful to be able to provide the region with a local race series. We want you to know how important Somersault is to us. We’ve been participants, volunteers, sponsors, race directors, and now, owners. With that scope and insight, we hope that Somersault continues to evolve and grow, to meet the ever-changing needs of our community.

If you ever want to discuss Somersault and share feedback or ideas, we hope that you’ll reach out. We are continuously striving to deliver the best events possible so that anyone can feel inspired to chase their goals.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
