Riding Mountain Triathlon/Duathlon

Riding Mountain Triathlon is the premier destination multi-sport event on the prairies. Located in beautiful Riding Mountain National Park, where out of the never-ending wheat fields emerges one of Canada’s best-kept secrets.

The multi-sport weekend is designed for the whole family, with the adult Olympic and Sprint races on Saturday and the Kids triathlon on Sunday.
"It made me smile when I crossed the line because I just love this race so much," Malenchak said.
"We had more people come to us and just tell us what a great time they had," he said. "It was far more than usual. A lot of times it’s comparing it to different races, but this time there was a level of sincerity and a true appreciation of the day and how it all came together … It was literally perfect triathlon weather."

World Championship Qualifier

The Windburn Multi-Sport Academy is pleased to announce that the Riding Mountain Triathlon is an ITU World Triathlon qualifying event. All athletes in the 2018 Olympic Triathlon have a chance to win a spot on the Canadian National Age Group Team to represent Canada at the 2019 World Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Each athlete that places first in his/her age group in the Olympic Triathlon will qualify. Please follow the link from Triathlon Canada below for details.

ITU World Tri Grand Final in 2019

"It is a pleasure to announce that Lausanne, the “Olympic Capital”, has been awarded the World Championships in 2019,” said ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado. “The 2019 season will be a pre-Olympic year in which athletes are vying for Olympic spots. What better place for athletes to race for major Olympic qualifying points than in the Olympic Capital itself.”

Race Description

SWIM ROUTE - The swim starts at the east end of the main beach area. Swimmers will proceed clockwise along a 750 m arrowhead shaped course. The Olympic distance athletes complete a two-lap route while the Sprint distance athletes complete one lap.

BIKE ROUTE -  A short cycle along Columbine Street takes athletes to the No. 10 Highway where a left-hand turn, marshalled by volunteers and the local RCMP, directs athletes north on an out and back course. Considered one of the most scenic rides on the prairies, the cycling course cuts through the RMNP’s boreal forest.

RUN ROUTE - One kilometer into the run, the trail drops down to the lakeshore, providing a vast view of Clear Lake and its north shore. The Sprint distance runners make the turnaround at Deep Bay and head back to the finish line. Olympic distance runners continue along the closed road for another 2 km to the golf course road.

Volunteer Support

The backbone of any event is its volunteers. The Windburn Multi-Sport Academy Event Crew and the Clear Lake Community has made quite the impression on the racers with their enthusiastic support, and we would love to have you join us.

It takes a small army of dedicated volunteers to successfully mount this race, so we are always in need of new and additional people to help. If you are interested, please contact Dave Lipchen at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Riding Mountain Triathlon - Course Maps

All maps will be posted at transition. In accordance with our green initiative if you wish maps please print them at home.

Swim

The swim starts at the east end of the main beach area. Swimmers will proceed clockwise along a 750 m arrowhead-shaped course. Swimmers will pass the anchored sailboats as they exit the bay into the open water of the lake.

Lifeguards in boats as well as kayakers monitor the swimmers as they make their way around the course. Cheers from the enthusiastic crowd lining the beach carries across the water and encourages the athletes along the way.

The Olympic athletes complete a two-lap route, while the Sprint athletes complete one lap. Upon completion of the swim, athletes exit the water and run up the stone stairs past the cheering crowd and swim split timers, into the scenic transition zone.

Bike

Once exiting the transition zone, riders mount their bikes. A short cycle along Columbine Street takes athletes to the No. 10 Highway, where a left-hand turn, marshalled by volunteers and the local RCMP, directs the athletes north on an out and back course.

Considered one of the most scenic rides on the prairies, the cycling course cuts through the RMNP’s boreal forest. Riders are in awe of the mosaic of mountain and prairie landscapes, which is enhanced by frequent sightings of deer, moose, bears and the occasional lynx or wolf.

Both the Olympic and Sprint participants pass the famous Clear Lake Golf Course and embark on the first climb of the day. Once Sprint athletes reach 10 km, they turn around and head back to the town site.

The Olympic athletes continue on and are treated to a beautiful ride, capped by a panoramic view of Clear Lake just before they embark on a gentle 5 km climb to the turnaround. Upon return to the town site, riders prepare for their second transition as they glide past the enthusiastic spectators along Columbine Street.

Duathlon

Run

Runners exit the transition zone along the lakeshore walk. With the lake to the left and cottages on the right, participants forget the pain in their legs, left by the preceding bike, as they are absorbed into the atmosphere of historic Wasagaming cottage country. One kilometer into the run, the trail drops down to the lakeshore and a vast view of Clear Lake and its north shore greets them.

As the runners proceed along this path, the loons can be seen swimming along the shoreline and their distinctive call can be heard. As the runners approach the end of this lakeshore path, they head up to Wasagaming Drive where they continue west to the Deep Bay parking lot.

The Sprint runners make the turnaround at Deep Bay and head back to the finish line. Olympic runners continue along the closed road for another 2 km to the golf course road. Along the way, they are treated to the inspiring and scenic beauty of this national park.

The last 2 km follow Ta-wa-pit Drive through the heart of cottage country. Along the way, the seasonal residents are seen cheering the runners on to the finish line. Please see the Duathlon Run Course map for the two run routes.
