Wed, Oct 11, 20232024 Early Bird Pre Race Newsletter


The Early Bird is coming up and we wanted to send some reminders to that you get the most out of the race. Please read through this entire email so that you're ready for your run! 

Our Triathlons Sell Out Ealy: 

We have limited capacity in our swim events, and they usually sell out of few weeks before the race. If they do sell out, we'll have space in the duathlons and running events.

Be sure to sign up before May 14th at 6pm, to ensure that you get an event-specific race bib. While we do offer race day sign-up, those participants will get a series bib instead. 

Deadline for Edits or Transfers:

If you need to change any info related to your registration please let us know before Tuesday, May 14th at 6pm. We won't be able to make any changes after that time, so be sure to reach out soon if you need anything.


We'll have an in-person orientation at Carleton University, P6, on May 17th, at 5pm. 

If you can't attend, we encourage you to watch this virtual orientation. If anything is unclear or if you have more questions, you can email

Watch the virtual orientation video

Getting to the Event:

There's plenty of paid parking at Carleton University, and we recommend parking at P7, which is right off Bronson Ave. Our event is being posted in P6, but there's no parking available there because of our setup.

Otherwise, you can also access the area by bike, bus, or on foot. Although you might want to save some energy for the race!

Free Race Photos!

Bring your smile, or your game face, and keep an eye out for our Race Photographers on Race Day. The photos are FREE for anyone who participates. 

When to Arrive:

We recommend showing up an hour before the race, to find parking, get your bib, warm up, and make your way to the start line.

Bib Pick up:

We'll be set up at P6, at Carleton University. You can pick up your bib on May 17th from 3pm-6pm, or on the morning of the race, starting at 7am.

The race starts are:

All race start times and last-minute info are posted on our event page
