Early Bird Triathlon & Run

About the Event

Registration Opens November 1st, 2024!

Let the Multi-Sport season begin:

Let's kickstart the racing season! Turn your training into reality at the earliest 2025 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.

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: 

  • Bragging rights!
  • A FREE virtual bike fit from MyVeloFit.
  • A Somersault swim cap from ROCS/Zone3sports.
  • A personalized race bib. 
  • Professional timing from Sportstats.
  • On-course nutrition from F2C.
  • Race Photography from FinisherPix.
  • Podium Prizes for the top 3 male, female, and non-binary finishers, from TWIGZ.
  • Post-Race Cold-Plunge and Sauna from SUBMERGE.
  • Post-Race massages from triOS College.
  • Post-Race non-alcoholic beer from Libra.
  • Post-Race snacks
  • Memories that you won't soon forget.

Important Dates:

If you want to commemorate this achievement with a finisher's medal, make sure to register before April 17th and add the medal to your order. After this date, medals will be available to order subject to availability. 
  • Online Registration Deadline - May 13th at 6 pm. If you don't sign up by then, you can still sign up in person on race day, or at bib pick-up, subject to availability. Some of our races sell out, so make sure to sign up early!
