Local Presenting Sponsor

Trysport Multisport Ad Banner WEB

We would like to thank our Local Presenting Sponsor Trysport for their support. Please visit them on race day in the Recharge Zone. Please also visit their website for details on their products, services and the work they do with athletes. Details are on their website.

We are very excited about our partnership with Recharge With Milk  and the Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series!  Look for the Recharge with Milk Team  at the finish line for your sample of chocolate milk to help you refuel and recover!

Important Race Day Information

Please tell your friends that there will be race day registration.
*see our late registration policy for details when entering a race less than 10 days prior to event.

Bike Security

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.

Weather Forecast


Water Temperature & Water Safety: 

Based on reports to date the prospects for the swim look great. The latest water temperature readings can be found on the Event News.

The 7 day forecast shows a high of 23C on Sunday with a chance for isolated showers. The combination of air and water temperature should result in a wetsuit optional swim. We recommend you bring a wetsuit regardless as the final decision is 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

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.

Race Day Registration

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

My Sports Shooter

mysportsshooter.comWith the changing of the sports photography market we are now happy to be working directly for MultiSport Canada!  After years of being a member of the MultiSport family as a photography provider, we are now happy to be part of the bigger picture (pun intended), and to supply the participants with a new and exciting service.
Your photos are now FREE and paid for by MultiSport Canada!  All images taken during the regular season events (with the exception of the Barrelman), will be FREE for you to share, tag and download directly from Facebook!  There will be no more external galleries, indexing or photo sales from the events and instead you will be able to access the photos shortly after the race directly from the MultiSport Facebook Page!
We will be organizing the galleries as conveniently as possible using time references, sections (swim, bike, run, candid, podium) and locations.  We will be bringing back a full customized image from your podium win that will include all the race statistics.  These images will be in the Facebook Gallery as well!
We hope this new service will bring a new level of enjoyment to your entire race experience!
Yours Sincerely for a 12th Year!
Mike Cheliak – My Sports Shooter
