MSC Rose City Long Course Hosts First of Four Stops on This Season’s Long Course Series
June 29, 2016 – It was a beautiful day and a beautiful venue in Welland on Sunday at the International Flatwater Centre. The Recharge with Milk MultiSport Canada Rose City Long Course Triathlon was the host of the 2016 edition of the Triathlon Ontario Long Course Series. Nearly 150 members earned points towards their Series rankings on the day. The ideal weather and great setting for the first stop in this year’s four-stop Triathlon Ontario Long Course Series helped contribute to a fantastic turnout for both racers and supporters.
The Long Course Series consists of two male and female divisions, one for Age Groupers (under 40) and a Masters Division (40+). Athletes must be Triathlon Ontario members to be included in the Series standings and points are awarded for finishing position in the top 20 in each age group. Athletes can do as many or as little of the four events but only the best two results count in the Series total.
Extra points are available for certain events based on Provincial Championships or depth of field/participation.

The next stop on the Series is the Subaru IRONMAN 70.3 Muskoka on July 10th. Its worth 1.25x the points. Interested in participating but not a member yet? No problem, just join here and if you raced in Welland let us know, we’ll add you to the standings.
Congrats to Angela Quick on the Win!

Draft Legal Provincial Championships Reminder
If you liked the venue this past weekend and are looking for a new challenge, why not register for our Draft Legal Provincial Championship at the International Flatwater Centre August 27th. Our race course will be slightly different but very spectator friendly for each of the three disciplines. We have added a new Age Group wave, capped at 50 entrants for both men and women. This capped entry is open to any member 16 and over and no draft certification is necessary. Check out our event page for more details and the certain rules around the draft legal event.
This event is ideal for anyone that will have raced the spectacular Ottawa Nationals race in July, anyone who may have qualified for the 2017 World Championships or those who think they are fast and want to try a new format of racing against the best Age Groupers in the Province, regardless of age. There are still a few spots left.
