General Information

The East Beach at Birds Hill Park is the start and end of the race and where you register upon arrival.  The man-made lake here is great if you’re nervous about your swim, most adults can touch bottom at most points in the lake. The bike portion has rolling hills which provides a nice little challenge but not the bigger hills like Kenora or Riding Mountain. The run is along the trails around the East Beach area with no large inclines. 

Aquabike

Aquabike is being touted as the fastest growing multi-sport in North America.  Aquabike consists of the swim and bike portion of a triathlon.  Athletes start at the same time as the Olympic or Sprint distance triathletes, completing the same swim and bike distances on the same course as the other racers.  They head to the finish line from transition after getting off the bike.  It is perfect for athletes who do not run or athletes recovering from an injury.
