MEC Langley is very excited to be hosting the triathlon again after such a successful inaugural event!
Also, to make it even bigger and better, we've added a duathlon...here's the link: http://events.mec.ca/event/58186/mec-langley-duathlon
This short format (sprint distance) tri is ideal for those looking to complete their first multi-sport event, as well as a great training event for experienced triathletes.
The event starts at the WC Blair Recreation Centre in Langley with a 750m pool swim. A rolling start will ensure participants have plenty of space for the swim. The cycling leg is a 20km route that heads south toward the US border and the quiet, mostly flat rural roads of the Langley area. The run segment is a 5km out-and-back that heads west of WC Blair. This event will be chip-timed to ensure accurate results for each finisher, with medals for top male and female finishers in each age category. Participants must be 16 years of age or older.
Age groups will be Mens and Womens 19& Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+.
ONLINE REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE MIDNIGHT ON THURSDAY, AUG.6TH. Registration on Friday (9:30-9) and Saturday (9-4) will be available in person at the MEC Langley store (604-534-4570). Late registration fee is $50. NO DAY OF RACE REGISTRATION. Start time is 7:00 a.m.
The pool set-up will be 4 wide lanes. Swimmers will be seeded by their predicted swim times from slowest to fastest. There will be 8 people per lane and you will stay in your designated lane so no need to go under ropes. As participants complete their swim and exit the pool, another will start. All start times will be recorded to ensure chip timing is accurate.
Participants can use WC Blair changing rooms to get ready before the event. Also, after the race participants have access to their changing rooms/showers by showing their race bib.
