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.
Race Specific Information
Very Important Toronto Island Update
Read the details here on why the Toronto Island Triathlon is now a swim-run event.
Toronto Island features some of the best beaches in the area for swimming. Water temperatures in Lake Ontario can vary based on wind direction, but typically range between 16C (60F) and 22C (72F) in mid-August. Within this temperate range wetsuits are not required, but always recommended as they help to keep you warm as well as add to your buoyancy.
