Try-A-Tri ~ 375m - 10K- 2.5K

This is a VERY popular event and typically sells out every season! You will see all types of athletes at this event. Many of them will be trying a triathlon for their very first time. You will also see athletes that are very young and very fast or on the other end of the spectrum you will also see those that have a very relaxed approach to the sport and their only objective is to have FUN! No worries, we have something for everyone! The swim begins by swimming in a clockwise "rectangular pattern". The swim path is clearly marked with large, orange buoys. The water tends to be quite nice at this event so if you have a wetsuit you can wear it. If you don't, but would like one, you can always look into renting one. Many go without. Mountain bikes are perfectly acceptable to ride in this race. It has some rollers but nothing too daunting. It is an out and back course that can generate some great speed if you like. The run will leave transition through the Merrell Run Tower and continue along the roads within the confines of the park on 2.5 km. of paved roads before heading downhill to the Finish Line!

Sprint Triathlon~ 750m- 30K-7K

This is a great venue for a race which is why we come here twice a year. Water temperatures are usually very comfortable at the end of the year and people who participated at the first Guelph race are always excited to see how they have improved over the summer of training and racing. The swim is a wave start that begins on the beach. Athletes swim in a clock-wise, rectangular pattern. The swim finishes with a relatively long run with a gradual uphill over grass to transition. The bike course is fast with rolling hills but nothing too difficult. If it is windy you’ll feel it because the roads are open and exposed, but it’s out and back so you won’t see a headwind the entire time. Be aware of the speed bumps on the road that leads in and out of the conservation area. It’s easy to lose a water bottle if you’re not careful. The run is completely contained within the park and composed of flat paved roads with short rolling hills. Nothing too difficult.

Sprint Duathlon~ 2K- 30K-7K

Your race starts with a 2km. run which will begin just after the triathletes start swimming. From the transition area, walk out towards the road that leads into transition. Walk towards your right and look for the large barricade with the DUATHLON START sign on it. The announcer will meet you here and give last minute instructions or notices. Your first 2 km run stays all inside the park on paved roads. Nothing too difficult it will act as a great “warm up” for your bike! The run is short, rolling hills on an out and back course which will lead you back into the Transition Area to get you ready for your bike. The bike course is fast with rolling hills but nothing too difficult. If it is windy you’ll feel it because the roads are open and exposed, but it’s out and back so you won’t see a headwind the entire time. Be aware of the speed bumps on the road that leads in and out of the conservation area. It’s easy to lose a water bottle if you’re not careful.

Sprint Swim/Bike~ 750m- 30K

This is a great venue for a race which is why we come here twice a year. The Swim/Bike is a great option for those who are just plain tired of running! Water temperatures are usually very comfortable at the end of the year and people who participated at the first Guelph race are always excited to see how they have improved over the summer of training and racing. The swim is a wave start that begins on the beach. Swim/Bike athletes all start the race in the same wave. We will let you know closer to the event which wave that is. Athletes swim in a clock-wise, rectangular pattern. The swim finishes with a relatively long run with a gradual uphill over grass to transition. The bike course is fast with rolling hills but nothing too difficult. If it is windy you’ll feel it because the roads are open and exposed, but it’s out and back so you won’t see a headwind the entire time. Be aware of the speed bumps on the road that leads in and out of the conservation area. It’s easy to lose a water bottle if you’re not careful. Once you are back to the Transition Area you can consider your self done! Take a moment to relax then come and see the ladies at the finish line and return your timing chip and get some much needed refreshments!

Sprint Triathlon Relay~ 750m- 30K-7K

The RELAY option is an excellent way to get involved in the sport without having to do it all! Gather one or two friends or family members and create a team! Each athlete takes one or two of the disciplines and it is a whole lot of FUN! (see course description for triathlon). Each athlete is entitled to all the perks of the individual triathlete (race kit, food, water, Technical Tee etc.) Relay teams have their own area in transition and each bike rack is labeled specifically for that. It also should be noted that the TEAM shares ONE timing chip. The timing chip acts as the exchange baton like you would see at a relay running race. The swimmer begins the race with the chip on their ankle. The biker waits in Transition and once the swimmer returns from the swim, the chip will be exchanged. In order to help the Team keep organized and out of the path of all the other athletes in transition, we also have a relay penn area where the chip exchange will happen. The same will happen for the run portion and once the runner crosses the finish line you can all meet there to celebrate your victory! NOTE: Please have the whole team available at the same time for race kit pick up. All athletes must pick up their kits together and be present to sign their waivers.

    World Endurance Canada has been producing triathlons and duathlons for over 25 years. We have had many terrific events over the years. We do our best to spread our events throughout Ontario in order to reach as much of the athletic population as we can. While many people think the big cities are the place to race we do our best to avoid them. We much prefer the rural setting where the roads are quieter and the air and water is cleaner.
