The Canadian Triathlon & Run

About the Event

Our Marquee Event: 

The Canadian is the premier event of the Somersault Tri/Du Series - don't miss out! If you are from the Ottawa area, it's great to race at home. If you are from afar, it's a great way to see some of the nicest parts of our Nation's Capital.

It's the last multisport event in Eastern Ontario and it doesn't disappoint. The course is on Colonel By Drive, giving you a great view of the Rideau Canal, Carleton University, Dows Lake, and Lansdowne. The finish line and transition zone are inside the Terry Fox Facility!

Participants love:

  • The dramatic finish. All of our events finish on the Terry Fox Track, which is a venue that's hosted the Canadian Track & Field Championships and has been run on by countless Olympians. 
  • The bike course is closed to traffic.
  • That there is a wide range of events to choose from, including 113 options (aka 70.3 or Half-Iron) in the triathlon, duathlon, and swim cycle events. 

Included in your registration is:

  • Bragging rights!
  • A FREE virtual bike fit from MyVeloFit.
  • A personalized race bib.
  • A Somersault swim cap from ROCS/Zone3sports.
