We are excited to be hosting our fourth annual Frontier Triathlon this spring. Come and be a part of this year's fundraiser event here at Frontier Lodge!
You can choose between an Off-Road Triathlon or Duathlon
Triathlon: Swim + Bike + Run
It's an off-road triathlon! Swim 500m in the lake, then bike 13.2km of sweet mountain bike trail (intermediate), and finish off with a 4.5km trail run around the lake (see map and elevation profiles below).
Duathlon: Run + Bike + Run
Who Can Race: Everyone that's 16 and up! The course is designed to be accessible to first timers, yet still a challenge to the more advanced racers who want to push it. If you're not up to the full challenge, then form a team of two or three.
How Many Can Race: We can only allow 100 racers between the two events, so register early!
Cost: The cost of the event is $150 per participant, whether racing alone or as part of a team. As this is a fundraising event, $100 of this cost is a donation eligible for a tax receipt, along with a $50 race fee which includes some swag, a post-race meal, and a rocking good time.
At the time of registration you will be presented with two options for covering the above costs:
1 - Pay the $150, and get training. Fast, easy and simple.
2 - Choose to participate in bringing in donations for the specific project (to be determined). In this case, you will be charged a $50 race fee at registration, and provided with a link and information to facilitate your fundraising efforts through Canada Helps. There will be an expectation that a minimum of $100 is raised, but we encourage you to set your goals higher!
