In the last 12 years, we’ve only had to modify the event once. After the swim, you have the option of changing into dry clothes before going outside. If the weather is uncooperative, this event will not be cancelled; it will be modified (the most extreme option: swim + run on our indoor track). No refunds will be issued. If the event does have to be modified, you will receive 20% off your registration fee for the 2016 triathlon.
Only those registered will be allowed to participate (you may not sell or give away your spot).

If you withdraw by Sunday, April 5, you’ll receive a refund (minus the $15 administration fee). After April 5, refunds (minus the $15 administration fee) will only be given for medical reasons (doctor’s note required) or work related leave (documentation required).

3 choices:
  1. In person at the Recreation Customer Service Centre (U130)
  2. By phone: 403.440.6517
  3. Online
Cheer on our triathletes while you help make this great event possible. You’ll receive a dry-fit shirt (the same shirt the triathletes get, choice of men’s or women’s fit), lunch and the chance to win one of the many volunteer-only draw prizes.
