FAQ:

Why do I have to purchase an Alberta Triathlon Association (ATA) day membership?

All participants 

Being sanctioned by the ATA ensures our participants are covered in the event of an accident along with an outside to ensure the highest safety measures are being made. 

What if I am not a strong swimmer?

We welcome all levels. You can  do any stroke that you like. 

Kids in the kids event may wear lifejackets however, water wings, pool noodles, etc are not permitted.  

 

Can I walk the run portion? 

Absolutely! You can run, walk or run/walk - unfortunately we do not allow crawling (yeah that is an actual rule in multi-sport events!)

Can I have music on the run?

Due to official multi-sport rules, you may not have any music (with or without headphones) and will be disqualified if you do.  

What do I wear?

The best items to wear are:

  • triathlon suit or triathlon shorts and a triathlon top

  • women/girls - bathing suit and you can slip on shorts over top after the swim

  • men/boys - bathing suit and you can slip on a shirt after the swim

NOTE: you must wear your race bib while on the run. You can either pin it to a t-shirt you put on in transition, or wear a race belt and attach your bib to that.
