Early Bird Triathlon & Run

About the Event

Let the Multi-Sport season begin:

Let's kickstart the racing season! Turn your training into reality at the earliest 2024 triathlon and duathlon in Ontario!

This course is on Colonel By Drive, giving you a great view of the Rideau Canal, Carleton University, Dows Lake, and Lansdowne. Plus, it's the only in-pool triathlon in the region, which gives you a chance to do a triathlon without the open water swim.

Disclaimer: 

The swim events will sell out early, so sign up before it's too late. The pool has limited capacity but we'll have plenty of space in the duathlons and running events.

Charity Spots:

We have a limited number of Charity Spots, supporting Safe Families Ottawa, available for this race. For 300$, you'll get:

  • Guaranteed entry into any race of your choice. 
  • A tax receipt for the donation value (300$, minus the registration fee).
  • A tech shirt, specifically for SFO Charity Athletes.
  • A dedicated section in the transition zone.

Here's your chance to support a local charity through sport! 

Participants love: 

  • Indoor pool swim, in a 50m pool.
  • Bike and run Courses closed to traffic.
  • Lots of different events to choose from.

Included with your registration is:
