Peace Garden Triathlon – CANCELLED
Cancelled due to adjusted border protocols related to COVID-19
A change in protocol for at the Canadian Border, crossed upon return from the Peace Garden, means that children under the age of 12 are no longer exempt from required testing or self-isolation when travelling with fully vaccinated adults (as had previously been communicated). While we appreciate the efforts to keep Manitoba’s children & schools safe, this latest change means several key volunteers, as well as many athletes with families, would no longer be available to attend the event.
As a result, the event is unable to take place in 2021 and will look forward to returning in July of 2022.
The Peace Garden Triathlon will take place on Saturday, September 25th.
For 2021, the event will feature a reduced schedule to simplify our return to live racing, with Sprint Distance Triathlon and Duathlon options. Importantly, the Sprint Distance Triathlon will also be a qualifier for Age Group Team Canada towards the 2022 World Triathlon Championships in Montreal, Canada.
Those who attended the inaugural event in 2019 already know how amazing this course is. The swim is in the quiet lake. The bike course is an amazing rollercoaster on closed roads. And the run course is the most beautiful location you can imagine – with a finish right on the Canada/US border!
Have a look through the photos from the 2019 event if you need any more proof – this is as good as race venues gets!
