Important Race Day Information
Olympic & Sprint triathlons are sold out. Please tell your friends that there will be race day registration for the duathlons & the Give-It-A-Tri.
*see our late registration policy for details when entering a race less than 10 days prior to event.
In order to ensure bike security every participant arriving to the race site will be stopped as they are initially entering transition and they will receive two (2) florescent bracelets. The first bracelet will be placed on the participant’s wrist and the second bracelet will be put on the participant’s bike. 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.
The 7 day forecast can be seen from the link above. We recommend you bring a wetsuit as the decision for a wetsuit optional swim is always made race morning as per ITU rulings (pg 17).
If you need to rent a wetsuit you can contact D’Ornella’s Bike Shop in Toronto at 416-752-3838 who will be on site.
Water Quality is Good. We are the only race series to have a Water Quality Guarantee. The Water Quality Guarantee Page has all the details.
Race Day Registration Process
In an effort to make your day go a little smoother we have put together a short video clip which highlights the process on race day. Please take a minute to view the video on MSCtv. You can also read the Race Day Guide, Racking By BIB Number and Racing Guide, all of which can be found in our Athlete Resource Section.
Racking by BIB number
Bikes are racked by BIB Number. The BIB numbers are assigned by age and gender so for most athletes that means you will be racked with people in your age group and gender. If you are new to our races, please read the section in our Athlete Resource Library on Racking Your Bike
