Triathlon Ontario’s 2018 Indoor Provincial Championship Series consists of three indoor triathlons.

Though this is a Provincial Championship Series, races are open to everyone. In fact, beginners are especially welcome!  The unique indoor format makes these races fun for everyone.

Results to determine the Provincial Indoor Champions will be taken from the best two of three races.

 

Indoor Triathlon

Indoor triathlons are a great way to try the sport of triathlon in a safe, fun, welcoming way. The swim is in a pool, the bike portion is on a stationary bike and the run is on an indoor track. Indoor tris are also inexpensive – all you need to race is a swimsuit, goggles, t-shirt and running shoes.

The indoor race format is simple: swim as many laps as possible in 15 minutes, ride as many kilometres as possible in 15 minutes, and run as many laps around the track as possible in 15 minutes. The farther you go, the more points you score.

 

 

First Race of the Series

The first event in the series is being held on December 9th at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre, starting at 4 pm.

Participants have the option to choose their start time, subject to availability. Registration is open to anyone 10 years of age and up, and every athlete receives a complimentary Triathlon Ontario water bottle and swim cap.

Personal Best Indoor Triathlon

The second event in the series is the Personal Best Indoor Triathlon, held at McMaster University on February 18.

The indoor triathlon is a great way to challenge yourself and compete with other athletes. The easy format doesn’t require a bike or wind trainer, all you need to bring is swim and running gear. Compete in age group, school or relay categories. Great prizes and fun for all.
