Triathlon registration

32nd annual Cyswog ‘n’ Fun Triathlon happening August 3rd.

Registration is now open for Rosslanders set to compete in the 32nd annual Cyswog ‘n’ Fun Triathlon happening Aug. 3.

This challenging three-sport event is open to individuals and relay teams. There are two distances to choose from: the sprint course includes a 500 metre swim; 22 kilometre bike; and five km run; while the Olympic goes 1,500 m swim, 39 km bike and 10 km run.

“You don’t have to be a super athlete to take part, but some amount of training is recommended,” said race director Larry Bickerton.

“If you register now, you’ll have plenty of time to prepare.”

Individual participants must be at least 16 years old and younger athletes are welcome to join as part of a team.

The race is also known for attracting senior racers in their 60s and 70s.

“For many racers it’s just about being active and having fun,” said Bickerton.

At the finish line, racers will get a hearty lunch served in Lakeside Park by the Fresh Tracks Express food truck. Pre- and post-race massages will also be available.

Top competitors will win prize packages provided by event sponsors including Whitewater Ski Resort and Gerick Cycle.

There’s also a “Rookie Award” for the fastest first time triathlete.

To register for the Cyswog ‘n’ Fun Triathlon in Nelson go to trinelson.com and either fill out the online form or print off a paper registration form to be dropped off at Gerick Cycle.

 

Early bird registration discounts are available until July 6.
