A big thank you goes out to the Kingston Rowing Club for proving the dock for the swim. We would also like to thank Meg Einarson and Andras Switzer for helping to recruit lifeguards and swim volunteers.

Important Race Day Information
Please tell your friends that there will be on-site registrations from 12-4pm on Saturday and Sunday morning 6am.
*see our late registration policy for details when entering a race less than 10 days prior to event.
No Bike Safety Check
As it is every athletes responsibility to maintain their bike there will NOT be a bike safety check prior to the race. Please ensure that your bike is in good working order and is safe for use. We recommend getting a tune up from your local bike store before any race. D’Ornellas Bike Shop will be onsite and will be able to make minor repairs for a nominal fee.
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.

Important Information regarding the La Salle Causeway Bridge
The bike course for crosses the metal La Salle Causeway bridge about a kilometre into the bike course.
During the race, the bridge will be restricted to one lane for motor vehicles (north lane) and one lane for cyclists (south lane).
We recommend all athletes slow down when crossing the bridge. Do not change gears, peddle or brake as doing any of these may reduce your traction on the metal grate surface. You are advised to coast across the entire bridge.
Be forewarned that lift bridge may go up this morning to allow passage of boat traffic.
In the event that the BRIDGE IS UP, please follow these instructions:
- Race to the point at which volunteers are recording race numbers. They will record the time at which you stop.
- Make sure the volunteer is able to see your bib number.
- When the bridge goes back down, volunteers will record your start time.
- The time stopped will be subtracted from your race time after you complete the bike course.
In the event of RAIN,
If the roadway and pavement are wet it will be MANDATORY that you STOP AND WALK your bike across the lift bridge or use the sidewalk, otherwise YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
Volunteers at the bridge have been instructed to tell you to walk across the bridge or the sidewalk. You are urged to use extreme caution when crossing the bridge. Under wet conditions continuing across the metal bridge at race speed is extremely dangerous and could result in a fall and serious injury.
Remember that you are sharing the roadway with vehicular traffic so be safe and ride carefully.
- Please note that in order to reduce the effect of bike and vehicular traffic on the Wolfe Island Ferry, the Short Course Triathlon will be starting 5 minutes earlier, at 8:55am.
- 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.
