NEW 2019 Update regarding the LaSalle Causeway Bridge
Due to construction along Ontario Rd and deteriorating road conditions downtown Kingston, the first and last km of the bike course WILL NOT COUNT TOWARDS YOUR BIKE SPLIT.
We have a solution where sportstats is setting a timing strip on the out of town (eastside) of the Causeway Bridge (the massive metal bridge during the first km) you can’t miss it. Once you have crossed, you will noticed a few green pylons and a Sportstats sandwich board on the side of the road. This is where your bike time both STARTS and STOPS on the way back in.
This means that until you have crossed the bridge, you are in a no passing, no aero, untimed zone. Same goes for the return. Once you are at the bridge, your time has already stopped! You can relax, stretch your legs and safely cross the bridge without concerns and watch for rough roads and traffic. Police will still be present at intersections, however you are as always required to pay attention and slow down to a SLOW SAFE SPEED.
During the race, the bridge will be restricted to one lane for vehicle crossing, one at a time.
Athletes should slow down when crossing the bridge. Do not change gears, pedal or brake as doing any of these may reduce your traction on the metal grate surface. You are advised to coast across the entire bridge.
Be forewarned that the lift bridge may go up to allow the passage of boat traffic.
In the event that the BRIDGE IS UP, please wait patiently. Your time isn’t being counted.
In the event of RAIN,
If the roadway and pavement are wet it will be MANDATORY that you STOP AND WALK your bike across the lift bridge or use the sidewalk, otherwise YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
Volunteers at the bridge have been instructed to tell you to walk across the bridge or the sidewalk. You are urged to use extreme caution when crossing the bridge. Under wet conditions continuing across the metal bridge at speed is extremely dangerous and could result in a fall and serious injury.
Remember that you are sharing the roadway with vehicular traffic so be safe and ride carefully.

New 2019 Green Initiatives
MultiSport Canada is proud to support a green friendly initiative starting in the 2019 season. Over the course of the next year, we will be focusing on reducing our environmental impact. While triathlon promotes a healthy and active lifestyle, we also feel that we should strive to promote a healthy and sustainable business model for the planet as well!
- Green Initiative #1 – BYOB (bring your own bag) – We can easily reduce 7,000+ plastic bags this year by having YOU bring your own bag to registration. We will be handing out your bib, your memento choice (hat, t-shirt or socks), and your swim cap.
- Green Initiative #2 – Virtual Race Kits – In the past, MSC race kits have come in plastic bags with race mementos and sponsorship pamphlets and advertisements. This year, we will be replacing the physical handouts with a “virtual handout” in the pre/post race email to reduce the amount of paper we use throughout the season.
- Green initiative #3 – Bring a Bottle – To help eliminate 7,000+ water bottles throughout the season, please bring your own water bottle and use our supplied jugs of water throughout the race and expo areas.
We hope you will join us and embrace our new green initiative as it is an important step to take to help make our planet a greener place. We ask that you be patient and proud to help keep our waste at a minimum.
