The Northern Lights Triathlon Club is proud to present the 2018 Sprint Triathlon on Sunday June 17th.

For new triathletes this will be a fun and supportive environment for your first sprint race, while experienced racers can use this as a warm up for their season and of course a year worth of bragging rights for the winner. This race starts with a pool-swim at MacDonald Island Park’s Olympic 50m swimming pool, followed by a 21km bike ride to Parson’s Creek, and a 3-loop 5km run on paved trails in Parson’s Creek. Transition 2 and the Finish will be at the spray/skateboard park on Heritage Drive.
