Triathlon Ontario Indoor Triathlon Championships at McMaster University

The Awake Indoor Triathlon Championships at McMaster University is quickly approaching on Saturday February 28th.

The event will run from 2-6pm and the benefit is that nobody needs to bring any equipment. The format is 15min indoor swim – 5min rest – 15min indoor bike on McMaster Electronic bikes – 5 min rest and finishing off with a 15min run on the indoor 200m track. Waves of 18 athletes (2 per lane) will start every 20 minutes from 2pm onward.

“The beauty of the indoor format is that it allows novices to go slowly for 15 minutes and for very fit age group athletes and elites to hammer the 15min swim-bike and run legs,” said Barrie Shepley.

The indoor format has been used for over 2 decades and because participants do not need equipment, its a great way to introduce newbies to the sport. The entire day will take place at McMaster University’s indoor pool and 200m track area. Spots are quickly filling up, so anyone interested should make sure they register soon.

Register for the event.
