Gravenhurst hosts the Ontario Duathlon Championships

The Sold Out Status continues for the Olympic and Sprint Triathlons 

We had another full and exciting weekend of racing at #MSCGravenhurst. The Muskoka Steamship swim start leads to the triathlons being sold out year after year, so if you are already contemplating a return next year, make sure to register early. We typically release the new season schedule in November and open registration soon afterwards.

We were blessed with the opportunity to once again host Triathlon Ontario’s International and Sprint Duathlon Provincial Championships along with the Du the Double Challenge. With National Team qualifying spots up for grabs on Saturday, a cool morning quickly led to some heated racing for those berths.

Thanks to Local Presenting Sponsors

Thanks goes to  IDA Gravenhurst & Ontario Trysport for their support during the weekend.
