Complete Our Post-Race Survey For A Chance To Win!

Where else can you let the race organizer know how you felt about the race and get a ballot to win one of $11,000 in prizes? We really do use the feedback you provide to improve our races and hope you will take a few minutes to complete the Woodstock Customer Satisfaction Survey. After every race we will send out a Post-Race Survey where we ask you about your race experience. Complete the survey and you will receive a ballot in the Season Long Draw. The survey helps us improve, make changes and let’s us know how we treated you on race day. You just need to tell us what you think of the race. Here is the  Binbrook Post-Race Survey.

Our Season Long Draw – Everyone can win!

This year we will once again have a Season Long Draw, however now everyone has a chance to win. After every race we will send out a Post-Race Survey where we ask you about your race experience. The survey helps us improve, make changes and let’s us know how we treated you on race day.

As in past years we will also be awarding additional ballots based on participation. With the draw being held at the end of the race season it means the more you race the better your chance to win. We will track your races and once you have entered THREE OR MORE RACES you will automatically be given three extra ballots. Each additional entry will also give you another ballot.

Here’s an example: Compete in 5 races, you get 5 ballots. Complete the post-race surveys and get 5 additional ballots for a total of 10 ballots. Compete in 2 races and complete the respective post-race surveys you get 2 ballots. It’s our way of thanking you for coming out to our races all year.

We intend to keep adding prizes all year and will keep updating the prize list as the season progresses.

The Season Long Draw page has all of the details.

The Only Series With A Custom Podium Award Photo

Custom Podium Award Picture
Custom Podium Award Picture

The free custom photo for our award eligible athletes will continue but in a different manner. The award photos will now be in the FREEZONE gallery on My Sports Shooter’s Facebook Page.

Each race will have a FREEZONE, and each race will have an AWARDS Gallery.

The photo will be a customized podium shot with text and graphics with the race, date, names of all participants in the category as well as the statistics directly from Sportstats. You can download your free customized award in full print resolution instead of having to claim it by using a coupon. This totally streamlines the free award process and gives you an amazing keepsake to mark your achievement!

What if I can’t stay for the podium???  We are encouraging all podium participants to stay for the group shot but if you are not able, we are asking you to head to the Photo Tent area and get a great portrait done by one of our crew members. This photo can be taken with just you or with your bike if you want. The image will be customized with your race results and put in the FREEZONE gallery. You will be able to download it shortly after the event.


We will no longer be offering any coupons, discounts or free action shots for any participants. We have the FREEZONE gallery which will have lots of amazing photos from the day and encourage you to visit the Photo Tent to have a portrait done while you are on site. Those shots will always be free for you to download directly!

If you run into any problems, please contact Mike Cheliak at

Binbrook Report & Results

By Roger Hospedales

Overcast skies and cool temperatures made for a fast day of racing at Binbrook. Unlike last year, when we were all scrambling for cover after the race due to the constant rain and chilly temperatures, the atmosphere was much more festive and busy at the Race Expo and post-race awards.

Here is our recap of the day’s events:

Checking in with the Recharge With Milk Development Team

Cody Beals headshotCody Beals, a member of the Recharge With Milk Development Team, kicked off his 2013 season with a second place performance in the triathlon at Binbrook.

“I kicked off the triathlon season on Saturday at the MultiSport Canada Binbrook Sprint Tri. With perfect conditions, a fast and flat bike course, a mixed surface run and a strong field, it promised to be a fun race. No fewer than 12 Elite men showed up, which bodes well for the depth of competition in Ontario. The MultiSport Canada Elite Age Group/Pro Series will be hotly contested this season.”

A Reminder to all Athletes

Maintaining great relationships with the communities hosting our races is essential to ensuring that these races are successful and continue to exist. Therefore, athletes, please remember to be courteous out on the race course. Not only to volunteers and fellow racers, but also to the residents of the community you are racing in. And just like when you are out training, you need to share the road. It is a race but we do not own the road. Adopting the spirit of sharing and co-operation will make it a better experience for all.
