Saturday June 8th & Sunday June 9th

JUMP – Swim – Bike – Run

Qualifying Event: 

Standard Duathlon

View the Triathlon Canada Qualifying Events page HERE for full details.


Hosted at the Muskoka Wharf Sports Fields and featuring a JUMP from the iconic Muskoka Steamships, Gravenhurst has been one of the most sought-after events in the MultiSport Canada Triathlon Series for over 10 years. 

The event has now moved to June to take advantage of quieter roads prior to the start of summer in Muskoka. 

The event sells out every year as it is limited by the capacity of the Muskoka Steamships, so be sure to register early to guarantee your spot! 

Highlights 

  • Large Grass Transition Area 
  • Registration, Food, Awards, and Finish Line all close by each other 
  • Great view opportunities for spectators

Includes

  • Locally Sourced Custom Finisher’s Medal
  • Race-Specific T-Shirt in a Casual Sport Cut
  • Professionally timed by Sportstats
  • Post Event Food, Draw Prizes, and Age-Group Awards
  • Multi-Race Discounts, as well as U23 (10%) and U18 (20%) Discounts

Swim Course 

After your JUMP into Lake Muskoka, the Swim Course has plenty of long straight sections with the sun at your back.  As the event is in June, wetsuits are recommended as the temperatures are projected to be in the 19C-21C range (66-70F). 

Bike Course 

After departing the Muskoka Wharf, you’ll stay on Rd. 169 all the way out-&-back to the turn-around.  Rd 169 has long steady grades, paved shoulders that vary in width, as well as excellent sightlines for cyclists and motorists alike.  This is SHARED ROAD Course, so be sure to follow all safe riding practices. 

Run Course 

After following the pathways in the Muskoka Wharf Sports Park out to North Muldrew Lake Rd, the hills begin.  Regarded as one of the more challenging in the Series, the Run Course climbs and descends throughout its length.  This is a SHARED ROAD Course, so participants will run facing traffic at all times.
