In order to ensure bike security every participant arriving to race site will be stopped as they are initially entering transition and they will receive two (2) 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.
Water Quality is Excellent. We are the only race series to have a Water Quality Guarantee.
Race Day Registration Process

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
Free Race Day Photos is just one of the many perks you get with racing with us and we believe this is the most memorable and meaningful keepsake of your race experience. You’ll be able to print the photos, frame them, share them on social media, use them on your websites, make a poster of yourself, keychains, or whatever you desire.
By utilizing Zoomphoto, MultiSport Canada is providing you with a platform to easily find your photos (by BIB or Last Name) and then download them with a custom overlay with your finish time if you so choose. Check the Zoomphoto Page after the race!
There can never be enough volunteers so please consider helping out on race day. Just drop by the Volunteer tent and we will be happy to find you a spot with our volunteer team. If you would like to check-out the volunteer opportunities, please visit our Volunteer page.

Important Information regarding the LaSalle 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).
Athletes should slow down when crossing the bridge. Do not change gears, pedal 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 the lift bridge may go up to allow the 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.
On Course Nutrition
Glyco-Durance will be the featured race fuel on the LC bike and run course. This all natural race fuel is carbohydrate based using the same scientifically developed electrolyte blend in the Hydra-Durance. When calculating out your nutrition on the bike please keep in mind that 25oz waterbottles filled with Glyco-Durance will have approx. 200 calories per bottle. Each 6 oz cup is approx. 30 calories.
On Site Sponsors
F2C Rehab 3:1 Chocolate and Vanilla will be waiting for you when you cross the finish line! The optimum three to one ratio of carbohydrates to protein, this recovery beverage uses the same carbohydrate that is in Glyco-Durance plus a blend of 5 different proteins and an organic coconut oil. With the lactose removed from this drink and digestive enzymes added this beverage is great for post race recovery. Each 7oz cup is 250 calories. Don’t do whey? Not a problem, just ask for F2C VeganPure in the recovery area. It will be on hand for those who have allergies or are plant based athletes and we will mix you up a vegan recovery shake! Last but not least look for our Strawberry & Cream Whey-Pure Energy, which will also be available.
