Beat The Heat virtual Triathlon
July 30 - August 10
Beat the Heat is our new summer triathlon hosted by 1JustCity and TriFactor where weekend warriors, super athletes, and fun-letes alike will run, bike, walk, hike, rollerblade, and more in the sweltering August heat.
Beat the Heat, 1JustCity’s summer version of our winter triathlon Beat the Cold, was created as a way to raise money for our summer programming and help families create blissful summer memories.
From July 30 to August 10, beat the summer heat and race to raise money to help us create incredible, meaningful summer experiences for Winnipeg’s underloved.
Just like Beat the Cold, Beat the Heat runs for 10 days to give racers the opportunity to be flexible with their time and creative with their sports and outfits!
For Beat The Heat, there’s only one race option: create your own course with your choice of summer sports and location! You can choose whichever routes and sports you’d like, but your race MUST have 3 distinct legs. There is no minimum distance, but just make sure you have 3 race legs.
To track your race and be entered into our daily prize draws, use the Strava app (or any other GPS app) and send screenshots of your completed race to beattheheat at 1justcity.ca
Entries must be submitted by 6 p.m. on the day you completed your race in order to be counted. Otherwise, they’ll carry over into the next day’s entries and be drawn then.
In the email, please include a picture of yourself, your race activities, the screenshots of your completed race, and a short blurb about why you decided to beat the heat this year. Unless stated otherwise in your email to us, your post may be used to promote the event on social media.
1JustCity’s mission is to create a Winnipeg where everyone is welcomed, supported, celebrated and empowered. To bring us closer to achieving our mission, every summer at 1JustCity we make sure that all Winnipeg families can build meaningful memories together through our summer programming. 1JustCity organizes family trips to the beach and museum, large BBQs, and berry picking, PowWow clubs, outdoor scavenger hunts, and more! For many kids, these are the stories they’re able to tell their friends back at school in the fall, where they had the opportunity to feel belonging, connection, and not be left out of the fun.
