Toronto Island Pre-Race Report


Thank you for registering to race with us in Toronto Island! Please read the Toronto Island Important Information.

A big thank you goes out to the Toronto Triathlon club for recruiting volunteers!

We are very excited about our partnership with Recharge With Milk! Look for the Recharge with Milk Team at the finish line for your sample of chocolate milk to help you Rehydrate, Refuel and Recharge after your race.  Chocolate milk delivers an ideal mix of fluids to rehydrate, carbs to refuel and protein to recharge your body the wholesome way. Chocolate milk, the original recovery drink.

Important Race Day Information

Please tell your friends that there will be limited on-site registrations (Give-it-a-Tri only)
*See details on our events pricing page.

Bike Security

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.

Weather Forecast


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. You can also read the Race Day Guide, Racking By BIB Number and Race Rules & Etiquette Guide, all of which can be found in our Athlete Resource Section of our website.

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.comYour photos are 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 13th Year!
Mike Cheliak – My Sports Shooter
