750m swim, 18.5k bike, 5k run
2017 Sprint Triathlon Cancelled
Given the devastating flooding in our area. Unfortunately, as you may already know, water levels are still rising and may continue to do so over the next two (2) weeks while the snow pack melts. Already we have no beach and a very swampy park at Kin Beach, and the water has almost crossed the road.
So, it is with heavy hearts that for the first time since the Rats began we are going to have to cancel our event this year due to the worst flooding in memory.
Athletes, we will be in touch with respect to registration rollovers or refunds.
Location: Kin Beach in Vernon, BC
Take 25th Ave towards Ellison Provincial Park. 25th Ave turns into Okanagan Landing Rd. Turn right onto Tronson Rd. Stop when you see the lake.
