2018 Lakeside Pre-Race Information

Thank you for registering to race with us at Lakeside!

Our thanks go out to the Knox Presbyterian Church, Harrington for providing volunteers, as well as Janet Thompson for volunteer recruitment.

Ontario-Youth-Cup-300x229

Once again, Lakeside plays host to the 12/13 year olds Triathlon Ontario Youth Cup Series!

The Sprint Triathlon will have 1 spot/age group for the Age Group National Team.

Please tell your friends that there WILL BE race day registration!

We are very excited about our partnership with our Title Sponsor Skechers Performance and Presenting Sponsor Martin’s Family Fruit Farms!  Back this year is our fantastic Nutrition Sponsor F2C.

Please tell your friends that there WILL BE race day registration!

Parking

Please watch your speed! A friendly reminder that the speed limit on Sunova Crescent is 50km/h. Lakeside community has many families living around the lake with small children. We ask that you reduce your speed and do not exceed the speed limit at any point during the event, whether you are arriving or leaving. Thank you for your diligence.

Lakeside Resort will also charge a fee to spectators of the events a fee of $4.00 per spectator with a portion of the proceeds going to the church in Lakeside. This fee is similar but less than would normally be paid at a Conservation Area. Bring your swim suits and enjoy the beach after the athletes have finished the swim portion of the race. THERE ARE NO DOGS ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY OF LAKESIDE RESORT. PLEASE MAKE ARRANGEMENTS SO YOU DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG(S).

Parking

The parking area is about 150m South of the race site at the Northern Star Equestrian Farm. This will allow easier an easier post-race exit route. There will be signs directing you to the parking area.

The two bracelets have matching numbers and in order to leave transition after the race is complete the participant must have both bracelets with the same matching number. You will be asked to show your bracelet on your wrist every time you enter transition.

Post Race

F2C Rehab 3:1 Chocolate and Vanilla will be waiting for you when you cross the finish line! The optimum three to one ratio of carbohydrates to protein, this recovery beverage uses the same carbohydrate that is in Glyco-Durance plus a blend of 5 different proteins and an organic coconut oil. With the lactose removed from this drink and digestive enzymes added this beverage is great for post race recovery. Each 7oz cup is 250 calories. Don’t do whey? Not a problem, just ask for F2C VeganPure in the recovery area. It will be on hand for those who have allergies or are plant based athletes and we will mix you up a vegan recovery shake! Last but not least look for our Strawberry & Cream Whey-Pure Energy, which will also be available.
