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

It's an off-road duathlon! Run 4.5km on the trail, mountain bike 13.2km, and finish off with another 4.5km trail run (see map and elevation profiles below).


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!

When: Race start for both the Triathlon & Duathlon is 11:00am on Saturday June 23, 2018. Registration will be 7:00-9:00pm Friday and 8:00-10:30am Saturday. Please note the deadline to sign up for the race is June 15, 2018 at Noon.
