– Welland, Muskoka, K-Town and Barrelman highlight 4 part series –
January 5, 2018 – Triathlon Ontario, the recognized Provincial governing body of Multisport in Ontario, announced announced its complete 2018 schedule for the fourth edition of its popular Provincial Long Course Series.
The Series consists of four events, with the best two results counting towards the final series points calculation. Points are awarded based on finishing position in age groups within the top 20 placings. Winners of each division will have their names engraved on the Long Course Series trophy, as well as an individual award presented at the year end annual awards banquet.
In its first three years, the Series averaged approximately 400 participants earning points in the competition. Participants must be a Triathlon Ontario member by the end of the last race for their results to be included in the final standings.
The full race Series schedule is as follows:
The Series kicks off June 23rd with the MultiSport Canada Rose City Long Course Triathlon in Welland. The Long Course event will also host the Long Course Provincial Championships for the first time. This is a flat and fast course so expect some speedy times!
Cottage country is the backdrop for the next stop on July 8th at the Subaru IRONMAN 70.3 Muskoka. Last year’s popular course changes have carried over for this year but the course still rightfully earns its “Beauty and the Beast” nickname.
The Series moves down the 401 to the most easterly long course race in the Series. On August 5th Kingston will play host to the MultiSport Canada K-Town Long Course Triathlon. This scenic race is one of the oldest in the province, having started in the mid ’80s.
On September 16th, the Series heads back to where it all began in Welland for the Series finale. The host race will be one of the fastest growing events in the province, MultiSport Canada Niagara Falls Barrelman.
