Board of Directors June 2024 Update

Our bi-annual update is coming to you a bit later than usual this year, and for good reason – there has been an incredible amount of activity and progress within our sport that we are excited to share with you!

You may recall that we have been very focused on the following four key areas, all of which remain a priority throughout 2024.

  1. Recruiting new participants to our sport
  2. Supporting high-performance programs and athletes towards continued success
  3. Strengthening connections throughout the triathlon community through technical leadership
  4. Improving efficiency across Triathlon Manitoba

With these in mind and plans to build on the momentum of 2023, we entered the off-season supporting our clubs with training plans and a full slate of events and new programs on the calendar. Many of these events and programs were designed to attract new participants, enhance skills across all three components of triathlon, and increase participation in our longstanding annual events.

We are thrilled to report that participation has been very strong, feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are just hitting our stride with our summer events through June, July, and August. If you haven’t finalized your race schedule for this summer, now is the time to do so!
