Diefenbaker Off-Road Triathlon
July 28, 2019
This event will be a world qualifier for the cross-bike triathlon with 2 spots per age group and gender available for the 2020 ITU Multisport World Championships Festival in Almere, Netherlands.
The 1 km swim portion takes place in Lake Diefenbaker. It will be a beach start, one loop of the swim course and then a beach run up to the transition area.
The 22 km bike portion will be a tough out and back course that riders will get to ride on grass, sand, dirt and gravel sections. You might even get to jump off and push your bike at times! It follows the Trans Canada Trail all the way to the Elbow Harbour turnaround while paralleling Lake Diefenbaker.
The run section will take you on a 6.5 km course along the Trans Canada Trail into Douglas Provincial Park and back out again and home to the finish in Mistusinne. This is a rolling prairie path with a few semi-technical sections and some shade as you pass through some stands of trees.
For all distances above, must be 16 years of age and older by Dec 31, 2019
