Wednesday, July 4 – Gulliver’s Lake

The first Wednesday of July means fun racing for the whole family at Gulliver’s Lake. The water is warm and clean while the run is entirely within the park and away from traffic. This is a particularly good race for kids to have a fun first experience in multisport.

Wednesday, July 18 – Guelph Lake

Sigh. Last year, we moved our venue to Main Beach when the music festival wasn’t done with the Island run course. Our feedback was that this wasn’t as good a course, so this year we’re taking a break instead. Of course, everyone who registered gets their choice of a deferral to any other race or a full refund. We’re back August 1 at Gulliver’s!

Wednesday, August 15 – Guelph Lake

Our August race moves back to Pit Beach and its flat, fast run. The swim is sheltered and the run is a tight multi-loop where you can high-five your friends. Kids are welcome as young as three, and race with other kids their age. And the elites have their own wave for great spectating!
