Athletes may not be able to compete if their bike is deemed unsafe. Please remember that it is the responsibility of the athlete and their parents to ensure that all equipment meets Triathlon Ontario guidelines.
Due to the structure of the event, the transition area WILL BE CLOSEDuntil the end of the final event. Please be prepared to be at the race site until the end of the final event.

1) My child only has a mountain bike, can they use that?
Yes. The kind of bike does not matter however it does have to be in good working order, both brakes working properly, bike fits your child properly and wheel pumped up.
2) We do not have a Triathlon Ontario membership, can we still race?
Yes. If you are not a member of Triathlon Ontario, you will be charged a "one day insurance fee". This fee is paid to Triathlon Ontario for your childs race day insurance coverage.
3) Can we help our child get on their bike or on the course?
No. Our volunteers are there to help if and when needed and are the only people besides athletes that are allowed on the field of play which includes the transition zone. For younger athletes that may need help getting the bikes off the transition racks we do our best to attend to all the little ones as quickly as possible. Parents are also not allowed to pace or run along side an athlete on the bike or run course. WE DO HOWEVER ENCOURAGE VOLUNTEERING. The race course is designed so there is plenty of exposure to the athletes as they race.
