The True North Tri Fest in Sylvan Lake, AB, Canada is set take place July 16 – 18, 2021. The inaugural event will be hosted as a collaboration between MB EVENTS and R&R Premier Events, who have worked together on events like the Penticton 2017 ITU Multisport Worlds, Super League Triathlon and the Great White North Triathlon, which ran from 2011-2018.
Registration is now open at a limited capacity, conforming to approved COVID guidelines. The race weekend includes:
– Half Distance
– Olympic Distance
– Sprint Distance
– Open Water Swim (2km and 4km)
– Family Fun Run (1km and 5km)
True North Tri-Fest has chosen Sylvan Lake to host the multisport weekend. The picturesque community located between Calgary and Edmonton is less than a two-hour drive from major Alberta airports. Tiered registration prices and refund options are available should cancellations occur due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Australian pro Chris “Macca” McCormack recently spoke out about The True North Tri Fest, highlighting the event as a potential build up race for those looking to Ironman Canada, taking place just over a month after the True North Tri Fest.
