Swim Course

Enjoy the clear waters and amazing sunrise over Kempenfelt Bay  

Water temperatures tend to be in the 20-23C (68F to 74F) range, so wetsuits will very likely be optional for this event. 

Bike Course 

All routes feature FULLY CLOSED roads along the Barrie Waterfront.  The routes are Fast and Flat with wide turn-arounds at each end.  This is also a favourite with spectators as they are always close to the action! 

Run Course 

Heads along the Waterfront Paths towards the Southshore Centre and Military Heritage Park.
